Time is running out until the release of surveillance 2the next iteration of Blizzard’s online multiplayer shooter. surveillance 2 will add a variety of content that will significantly change the experience. New characters are by far the most exciting planned addition surveillance 2, so it’s perhaps not surprising that players have been looking for new information in leaks. Unfortunately one of the youngest celebrities surveillance 2 Leaks, the so-called “Fox Girl” Kimiko, has now been outed by Blizzard as a fake.


The Fox Girl leak has always been suspicious. The leak originated on 4chan, which is known for its inventive but utterly unreliable leaks. Nevertheless given surveillance 2The imminent release of, and the excitement that built as a result, gave hope that the leak might be legit. blizzards over watch Commercial lead Jon Spector felt sorry for excited fans and luckily decided to share the truth in a comment on Reddit.

The leak, for those who missed it, showed an offscreen photo of a gaming monitor. The monitor showed surveillance 2‘s character selection screen with a never-before-seen character named Kitsune selected. She had short purple hair, heterochromia with one bright blue eye, a large four-bladed shuriken weapon, and a ghostly fox perched on her shoulders. The post went on to describe Kitsune as a healer with a passive ability to cling to walls, her other abilities create areas of effect that heal and grant speed, and her ultimate is like Hanzo’s but briefly sends enemies into “a another dimension”.

Given the quality of the character model seen in the photo, and the fact that none of the skills were incredible enough to be unbelievable, the Fox Girl leak was deemed potentially real. To be fair, some over watch Fans felt the character’s quality wasn’t up to Blizzard’s typical standards, but the leak overall was treated as if it could be accurate.

Why Spector chose to comment on the matter is definitely a mystery. Blizzard is not known for commenting on every potential leak or rumor that comes out for 4chan or elsewhere. Perhaps the Fox Girl rumor has gained more traction than Blizzard is used to, or it came at a time when Blizzard doesn’t want a fake leak to disrupt its marketing plans.

Three new characters will be released for surveillance 2‘s multiplayer in early October. Two of these characters are Sojourn and Junker Queen. The third is still a mystery, however over watch Fans can assume it won’t be Kitsune.
