Blizzard has released a fictional front page spread from a local Havana newspaper in what seems to be a teaser for an upcoming Overwatch Archives event.

The Havana Sun’s cover story is entitled “How Don Rumbotico’s international fame is slowly erasing its founders from the narrative”, and details how a family-run distillery morphed into a shady, unrecognisable mega-corporation.

The story follows the Diaz’s family-run business which does exceptionally well and garners a sterling reputation. Things start to go very wrong when an anonymous financial group springs out of nowhere and offers to purchase the business.

The Diaz’s refuse the offer and suddenly some rum shipments go missing - funny that. It’s not long before the entire distillery is burned to the ground in a suspected case of arson.

Following these events, the Diaz’ are forced to sell their company for a sliver of its worth and the distillery takes on a completely different look. It’s all shiny chrome, and even the rum loses its distinct flavour.

Eventually another historic part of Havana, the Havana Sea Fort, is bought up by the corporation and converted into a closed off, impenetrable fortress.

The final column of the newspaper provides a sign of things to come, with a weather forecast warning locals of an impending category three hurricane.

This last details has left many in the Overwatch community speculating that the next Overwatch Archives event will feature a raid on the Havana Sea Fort and/or Rum Distillery which is blown open by the hurricane.

The Overwatch Archives event usually kicks off in mid-April and the timing of this teaser couldn’t be more perfect. Keep an eye on the homepage for more updates.
