Overwatch 2 leaks are here, right on schedule. This time they're all about ace-healer Moira and everyone's favorite cat-fanatic, Brigitte.

Since its announcement at BlizzCon last year, players have been combing the internet for any information they can find about Overwatch 2. Blizzard, themselves, seem to be acting stingy with the details, which has left fans to take matters into their own hands. Obviously, we're talking about leaks—both real and manufactured.

Twitter user Voporeon (@vapore0n) sent out a tweet yesterday that seemed to confirm a special "jetpack cat" ability for Brigitte in Overwatch 2.

They quickly followed up with a screenshot of what appears to be Moira's planned abilities in the game, as well.

Other users were quick to call the images into question. The use of the "old models" became a key focal point in the discussion. Additionally, other sharp-eyed responses pointed out the numerous mistakes with spelling and "unusual artifacting." Even the presented backgrounds appeared suspicious.

Shouldn't Moira's "MULTI OBRS" say orbs instead of obrs? This screams fake.

Something taht throws me off is Interlocked Shields missing. That was in the first trailer, but I guess it's gone?

On top of the spacing for the lines being inconsistent, they're inconsistent about what they use periods for ("Go To Fight" has a period, but "Mitzi" doesn't). I'm gonna say it's fake, but I'd love to be wrong.

When asked for a source, Voporeon admitted they found the screenshots on "a Facebook group" they're in. They neglected to name the group and have yet to respond to any other tweets in the same vein.

Ultimately, this leak has very few legs to stand on. We know images like these are easy to fabricate and have been done to this degree in the past. The numerous errors in spelling, branding, and spacing among other details does not bode well. It might be best to err on the side of caution and take this with a grain of salt for now.

Blizzard has yet to confirm or deny the veracity of this leak at the time of writing.
