John Cena And Overwatch 2 Collaboration Rumors Heat Up

WWE wrestler and actor John Cena has shared a cryptic Overwatch 2 post on social media, leading fans to believe that the collaboration rumors may be true.

Ahead of the release of Overwatch 2 Season 6: Invasion, Blizzard has been teasing the update by allowing a hooded figure called Enigma to “hack” into players’ games, with lines of HTML-style code appearing on some popular streamer’s livestreams, like Emongg, KarQ, and Flats (via PCGamesN).

A Reddit user shared a clip from one Emongg’s recent streams, showing that the code was in the font family “Felix-Antony’–John Cena’s middle names. There are other clues too, with a shortened URL linking to an image reading “JC” and the color code “#042377” which translates to Cena’s birthday, April 23, 1977.

The hacking has been the only teaser up until John Cena himself recently shared an Overwatch 2 screenshot from a Twitch stream on his Instagram. It doesn’t seem to give anything away at first glance, but the image links to an official “Overwatch 2 dev hang” and when jumping to the 1:12:05 timestamp shown in the screenshot, the developers can be heard talking with some streamers about potential crossovers and collaborations for the game.

Blizzard has yet to officially announce the crossover, but Cena seems to have added credibility to the rumors with his recent post, that a collaboration between the two could be likely. This wouldn’t be the first crossover for Overwatch 2. Earlier this year, the game introduced its first-ever IP collaboration event with the popular anime One-Punch Man.

Overwatch 2: Invasion is set to release on August 10 and will be adding brand-new PvE story missions and modes, co-op events, a new map, and hero. The update will presumably mark the start of Season 6 as well.
