Blizzard has just released a new comic for Overwatch, named Reflections
. In this comic, Tracer is shown kissed by her live-in partner who is also a female.
Blizzard had been hinting at a new member to join the LGBTQ community for months. Back in November, Michael Chu, the Lead Writer of Overwatch stated, “We want the stories about characters’ relationships - and not just romantic, but familiar relationships and stuff like that - to come out in the course of stories that we feel really do them justice.” And now, it seems that the Overwatch crew has fullfilled the promise.
There're people who are happy with this reveal and also people who see this comic as gay propaganda, like in Russia. What about you? Are you happy with the reveal? And which hero do you think will come out as the second queer?
