Overwatch Uprising teaser hints at new mission

Set before the King's Row storyline?

Blizzard is bringing back Overwatch's Uprising event, and with it the chance to replay the King's Row story mission which starred Tracer, Mercy, Reinhardt, and Torbjörn and helped to fill in some of the backstory to the online hit's character-filled world.

The revived co-op event will be available from April 10 to April 30, and there's a teaser trailer for it here...

Notice anything? Eagle-eyed fans will have picked up on the fact that the King's Row mission is designated as "archives file 0382" but the trailer ends with access to the previously unseen "archives file 0274".

Is this a clue that the return of Uprising will also feature a new story mission? And if so, the lower numbering suggests it could be set before the events of King's Row.

Oh, cheeky Blizzard, how easily you have us dancing to your tune. With only a week to go until Uprising is available again, expect confirmation either way very soon.
