Last night, TFT set designer Riot Wittrock teased a new champion coming to the game mode by sharing a zoomed-in image. Even before the champ's identity was confirmed, fans were able to guess fairly easily.
It seems that Riot has deliberately decided on using Cutpurse Twisted Fate for TFT, rather than his base model, so this could have implications on his origin and class as well.
When explaining the plan for keeping up with TFT's development, Riot said that champions will be added to the game in two different ways. First, one or two new champions will be added every patch or so, until the roster has reached a total of 60 champs. After a while, new sets of champions or skins with different origins and classes will be rotated in to keep things from getting stale.
