Over the past few weeks, certain Overwatch 2 Twitch streams were hacked into by a mysterious hooded entity heretofore known only as “The Enigma.” Addressing the broadcast viewers from a fortified bunker, The Enigma’s distorted voice warned of an imminent invasion threat from the dastardly Null Sector, set to hit Overwatch 2 on August 10.

Today, the identity of The Enigma was finally revealed on stream with huge streamers like Shroud, Kyedae and Scump international superstar John Cena! Cena, via this cinematic implored each to spread the word of Null Sector’s incoming threat:

A new trailer for Overwatch: Invasion also debuted today:
