It looks as though the next Overwatch hero to be released will not be the much-anticipated Doomfist, according to a cryptic post made by game director Jeff Kaplan on the official forums a little earlier on this evening.
In a thread asking the developers why Sombra lacked a sitting emote, conversation eventually turned towards the team's development priorities. Kaplan explained that they would rather focus on the most impactful additions to the game at any given time, and right now that focus is on developing new heroes.
So far, so business-as-usual you might think. When jokingly pressed to release more details about the heroes the team currently had in development, however, Kaplan simply replied: “24 is not who you think it is.”

The game's roster of heroes currently numbers 23, and for reasons which you can read all about in our Doomfist guide, that particular character has long been expected as the next member to join the Overwatch gang. Perhaps it simply means that Terry Crews won't be providing the voice though?
We'll update you as soon as we learn anything more about who the next Overwatch hero really is.
