Elsewhere in the thread, Kaplan said a Sombra sitting emote is planned, but it won't be out for months.
He went on to explain the delay has something to do with prioritization. There's no word on whether or not the post is in reference to a new hero, but at this stage it's probably best to simply assume that's the case with anything Overwatch these days. It's more of a prioritization issue. The Oasis map was added in early January, and Sombra, the game's newest hero, was added last November.
After all, he did not explicitly rule out the character from the roster.
"I meant to say that the lines that I was saying were in Greek, but I was not a Greek hero".
South African court rules against ICC withdrawal

Michael Floyd Pleads Guilty to Extreme DUI
The extreme DUI charge wasn't the only one he was facing, but six additional charges were dropped when he put in the guilty plea . The day after the game, Floyd took to Twitter bemoaning the fact that some fans were upset that he received a Super Bowl ring.
Call Out Trump for Flunking His Press Conference-Even the Easiest Question
So you looked for a new job, went through a fairly grueling application process, if you do say so yourself, got the offer. You asked the reporter , presumably for no reason other than the fact that she is black, "are they friends of yours?"
Of course Kaplan does not confirm that he is referring to Doomfist, but since this seems to be the general consensus it's safe to assume that's who he might be referring to. That's linked to the idea that Greek actor Alex Malao would be playing the next hero after he listed Overwatch on his CV.
Until Blizzard releases more, we can do little more than speculate. Everything from clues in the PTR map to Terry Crews' involvement have been making their rounds online, but it looks like Doomfist won't be the 24th hero coming to the game.
Kaplan pointed out how the portrayal of Iraq in video games is usually one of war-torn streets and bombed out buildings. So this could very well point to a character already in final production.
The thing is, not everyone is certain Efi will actually fight alongside other characters in the game. Now it would seem that we'll have to wait for his potential appearance.
Even when posts didn't explicitly mention the possibility Efi would be a victim of some awful accident, there's no shortage of love for this potential new hero, despite the fact we know almost nothing about her. The Overwatch game director reiterated what he's said before: the team has multiple heroes in the works at any given time, and that they choose what to introduce that they think the game needs.
