Overwatch doesn't often deal in ghosts, but this clip posted to the game's subreddit Thursday provides evidence that the game itself may be haunted.

While waiting in the queue between Overwatch matches, u/Slayer-Sango loaded into a free-for-all lobby full of Zenyattas. Slayer-Sango idly bounced on the Château Guillard for a few seconds trying to kill time as the Zenyattas converged on their position. Then the omnic monks started reciting voice lines one after another.

Perhaps sensing something was off, Slayer-Sango landed on the high platform with the Zenyattas to inspect them. They looked at two of the Zenyattas as one began a voice line, then turned 180 degrees to look at the third. In the middle of the voice line, the off-screen Zenyatta stopped speaking.

Slayer-Sango turned to see both of the Zenyattas they'd just seen were gone. They turned 180 again, and the third Zenyatta had disappeared. Suddenly the map was empty, the Zenyattas vanishing like spirits. A moment later the lobby closed, leaving Slayer-Sango wondering if they'd made a brief and accidental foray into the great beyond.
