Wildebeest is a hero that was created for the pitch meeting for Prometheus, which became Overwatch. His design is taken from unused Titan concept art. He was one of the marquee heroes prominently featured in the Prometheus "hero lineup" key art, and was also featured in early concept art created to help define the overall look of Overwatch's world.[1]

He was also used as an early concept for Reinhardt.[2]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Wildebeest was featured in the The Art of Overwatch as a Reinhardt concept.
  • Wildebeest's concept may have also been applied to Orisa and Brigitte, because of his Numbani heritage and his flail weapon.

  • Wildebeest also cameos at the start of the Cinematic Trailer, in the retconned image of the Overwatch team.
