Overwatch: “Multiple heroes” will be revealed as LGBT in a coming update

Overwatch Lead Writer, Michael Chu, has confirmed that several characters will come out as LGBT in a future update.

“It’s very important for us to have diversity and inclusiveness of all types, and that includes LGBT characters. There are definitely LGBT heroes in Overwatch,” Chu said in a recent question and answer period. “That’s multiple heroes.”

“We want the stories about characters relationships – not just romantic, but familial relationships and stuff like that — to come out in the course of stories that we feel really do them justice. It’s something that absolutely is important to us.”

It’s unclear who will come out, or when, but we’ll keep you posted.
