Overwatch's marketing head, Jon Spector, confirmed on Twitter that

new heroes will be unlocked through the battle pass

confirming recent leaks regarding Blizzard's plans for the battle pass

Concerns have been raised about the time and money required to "skip levels"

in order to gain access to a higher level hero more quickly.

Any difficulty in acquiring new heroes is a potential problem for Overwatch.

Towards this competitive shooter,

knowing your role and being able to aim are not the only factors in success

Because it is more difficult for new teams to organise, the game will be less enjoyable

if some players are shut out of choosing a key character

because they didn't progress the battle pass or don't have the money to outright unlock the character.
