Overwatch’s first queer character revealed (and it’s not who you think)

Blizzard today outed the first (of potentially many) queer character(s) in Overwatch.

Tracer, perhaps the most visible of Overwatch’s varied heroes, was shown kissing another woman named Emily in the recently released webcomic, “Reflections“.

Best yet, fellow team member Winston is shown at the end of the piece, welcoming the couple for a holiday dinner.

Congratulations, Tracer! Welcome to the family. Equal congrats to Blizzard itself for such a bold move.

Overwatch is currently available on Xbox One, PS4 and Windows PC.
