Is Blizzard Teasing A New Overwatch Character?

A new update from the Overwatch Twitter account suggests a new character could release soon. While nothing is confirmed, this tweet insinuates the inclusion of a support sniper.

The tweet, shown below, shows "classified information" sent via email between Jack Morrison (Soldier 76) and Gabriel Reyes (Reaper). An annotation in the email from Mercy states her agreement with Torbjörn's production of "different biotic delivery mechanisms was to save the lives of Overwatch agents and others in need of medical aid." However, she points out his latest proposal hints at the inevitable weaponizing of the rifle. It's not too much to go on, so time will tell what Blizzard is hinting at.
