The wait for Season 10 of Overwatch 2 is nearly over, with the release scheduled for April 16th. However, it appears that we may have already caught a glimpse of the season's overall theme. In a recent teaser trailer, there was a brief sighting of a very dark-looking Mercy skin, which could hint at what to expect.

So, let's delve into the details below and explore the current speculation and what we might anticipate in Season 10 of Overwatch 2.

Overwatch 2 Season 10’s Theme Possibly Leaked by Mercy Talon Skin

A recent teaser trailer was released, primarily focusing on the upcoming debut of the new DPS hero Venture. However, towards the end of the trailer, viewers caught a glimpse of a character donning a new Talon skin and sporting a skull mask. This character then laughs and utters "No mercy" before the teaser concludes. Fans promptly dissected the trailer's ending and concluded that it showcased a new skin for the support hero Mercy.

It remains uncertain whether this skin will be Season 10's Mythic, available in the store or part of the Battle Pass. Nevertheless, many believe it serves as a major hint regarding the next theme. Specifically, it appears that Talon, the nefarious faction of the Overwatch lore consisting of heroes such as Doomfist, Sombra, Widowmaker, Moira, Sigma, Reaper, and Mauga, will be involved.

Some players have speculated that it may entail a scenario where good characters turn bad and vice versa. One fan expressed on Reddit, "I’m thinking along the lines of the 'What If' line of Marvel comics. Those were so interesting, and instead of just a black and white good/evil swap, there were major, life-altering changes to characters’ stories that were so interesting."

While this is currently mere speculation, there is widespread agreement that the possibilities could be both intriguing and downright awesome to see. Fans share this enthusiasm, with one stating, "Lemme see Hammond as the intelligent animal scientist that joined OW’s ranks while Winston is out in Junkertown as the Queen’s champ. Swap Genji and Hanzo and make the story about Genji trying to kill his older brother… I think there’s a lot of opportunity here."

Of course, we will need to wait until Season 10 drops before confirming any of these theories. Nonetheless, it's a concept that garners significant interest, and we hope that the upcoming full Season 10 trailer will show us more. And when we receive a comprehensive breakdown of what Season 10 will entail, we will provide updates accordingly in our dedicated Overwatch section.
