  • Recluse was featured in an early piece of gameplay concept art by Ben Zhang. When showing this art at the D.I.C.E. 2017 conference, Jeff Kaplan took a moment to address the Overwatch subreddit, stating "No, the hero in the center is not the hero who you think it is."[2] This was in reference to the upcoming 24th hero at the time.
