Overwatch's New Story Reveals Its Second Gay Character

'Overwatch' character Soldier 76 confirmed as canonically gay

"That's the sacrifice I made". During the event, players can win special rewards in addition to the normal reward boxes.

In a thread on /r/CompetitiveOverwatch, user solidus_snake speculated that Blizzard wasn't concerned about Contenders viewership because "they primarily want casual viewers watching OWL".

Jack and Vincent were in a romantic relationship many years ago. And we are ready for him to get a fabulous rainbow skin in the next update. Ana said, unconsciously running her thumb over where her wedding ring used to be. But here's some positive reaction to the reveal, which follows the Overwatch holiday comic of 2016's confirmation that the game's cover star, Tracer, is a lesbian. Jack doesn't specifically state in the story that he is only interested in men, but Chu has since confirmed via Twitter that everyone's favourite grumpy socks-and-sandals disaster identifies as gay.

Like last time, the internet came out in full force to rejoice and praise Blizzard for its continued commitment to inclusivity in one of its flagship titles.

Overwatch has certainly been at the vanguard of character diversity, in terms of gender and sexuality, but despite all the complex backstories for the characters and their world none of it is really mentioned in the actual game, which has nearly no story content.

But turns out we were quick to make assumptions and he's actually our new gay icon. Retconning characters into surface-level LGBTQ relationships is often a red flag for queerbaiting. I always enjoy more character lore.

Though every single hero in the Overwatch roster is subject to hopeful fan theories regarding their sexuality, there was no official information about Soldier: 76's love life before Bastet was released. But for now, let's enjoy the fact that two of the most prominent heroes in one of the world's biggest video games are gay.

As spotted by Polygon, Tracer: Reflections also included a panel in which Soldier: 76 gazed at a photo of himself with his arm around a dark-haired man.
