[Rumor] Overwatch League Season 2 Team Names & Logos Leaked

It appears that seven of the team names and logos of the eight expansion teams for the Overwatch League's second season may have been discovered according to a submission on the /r/OverwatchLeague subreddit.

The Overwatch League is set to expand to 20 total teams for 2019 with the addition of eight teams representing the United States, Canada, China, and France. So far, we've seen the Atlanta Reign, Toronto Defiant, and Paris Eternal revealed.

According to the submission on the /r/OverwatchLeague subreddit, the API for the league's official app had already preloaded the team names and logos in a recent update. An industrious fan found them out and recorded all of the relevant information to share. Seven of the teams supposedly already have logos and names defined within the app; Vancouver is the sole outlier.

This image taken from the /r/OverwatchLeague subreddit purports to show the team names and logos for the eight expansion teams coming to the Overwatch League next year.

This information popped up a day ago. The Atlanta Reign and Toronto Defiant logos and names were gimmes since those teams had already been revealed. However, the Paris Eternal had not been revealed until this afternoon and the logo and name were completely accurate, lending credibility to the veracity of this image.

Furthermore, an industrious Redditor by the name of /u/hoboinaboxy noticed that a Chengdu Hunters Twitter account was created within the last month. It follows most of the teams in the league and - perhaps more interestingly - is followed by the Shanghai Dragons, the Chinese team from the first season of the Overwatch League.

The Hangzhou, Guangzhou, Chengdu, Washington D.C., and Vancouver teams have yet to be officially revealed. The Guangzhou team's Twitter may be revealing their logo and name officially tomorrow.

While this certainly seems credible, we've already seen a fake pop up earlier this year for Toronto's team. Only time may truly tell whether or not these are true. The second season of the Overwatch League will commence on February 14, 2018.
