Hollywood actor Terry Crews has long been dropping hints that he’ll be voicing the mysterious Doomfist in Overwatch, though Blizzard has yet to officially confirm anything. Thanks to a new video from the Hollywood star himself, what initially started out as a fandom wish may well become a reality come E3 2017.
In a new 15-minute long Facebook Live video, Crews gave his fans an update on the progress of his latest PC build, some of his upcoming projects, as well as a quick tour of his awesome office. However, things took a very interesting turn at the 8:40 mark when the Hollywood star dropped a bombshell that he’ll be at E3 2017 with a “major surprise.” Though he didn’t mention Overwatch specifically or reveal any details on the “surprise,” upon seeing the various Doomfist-related comments come up after his announcement, Crews laughed and said “ya’ll know what it is.”
Just to add more fuel to the Doomfist flame, Crews dropped another small hint during the middle of his live video by booting up Overwatch on his new PC. Given that Crews has recently started streaming Overwatch on Caffeine for fun, as well as stopping by Blizzard’s offices on various occasions in recent months, the addition of Doomfist looks to be inching ever closer to reality.

It’ll be a while yet before we finally get confirmation on whether Crews will indeed voice Doomfist as E3 2017 is still a couple of months away, but Overwatch fans will have plenty of things to keep them preoccupied until then. Not only is the current Competitive Play season well underway, Blizzard has recently launched a new Overwatch PvE Uprising event, which contains two new game modes and is scheduled to run until the start of May.
With the two new PvE game modes proving to be a hit with players and several new Uprising-specific cosmetics to be won over the next few weeks, it will be very interesting to see how Blizzard will follow up the popular Uprising event, especially if Terry Crews is involved in some capacity.
It remains to be seen what Crews has in store for his “major surprise” come E3 2017, but given that Blizzard has recently stated that the next Overwatch hero is “very far along in development,” it certainly appears that the pieces are aligning up for the long-awaited arrival of Doomfist.
Overwatch is now available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
