Soldier 76 is the latest confirmed LGBTQ 'Overwatch' character

Everything I fought for was to protect people like him... And we are ready for him to get a fabulous rainbow skin in the next update.

Naturally, this being the internet, some social media users have complained that this is in some way "pandering" on the part of Blizzard, and that games shouldn't force this, that or the other into their content. Sexuality, politics, relatable real-life matters, etc. "Relationships don't work out so well for us, do they?" The final moments of the story also indicated that Ana and her husband's relationship may have not worked out as it emphasizes that she no longer wears her wedding ring.

Michael Chu, the lead writer of Overwatch, later confirmed on Twitter that Soldier 76, a super-soldier once known as Jack Thompson, identifies as gay.

"When you're playing through a game and not just watching or reading it, you are actively involved in it and therefore actively involved in a character that is so different from yourself - that has really great educational benefits". Zippy dual pistol wielder Lena "Tracer" Oxton was revealed as gay in the December 2016 comic Tracer: Reflections, also written by Chu.

The impoverished region is prone to landslides, particularly in the colder months when heavy snow blankets the province. Nazari also informed that this illegal business is being carried out by the villagers for decades.

Many players have celebrated Soldier: 76's news, but others think revealing him as LGBT almost three years after the game's release feels like an afterthought.

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.

The bin's hatches, created to keep thieves out, can also trap people climbing inside. "It becomes a human trap". In the last four years, British Columbia has seen five people die after becoming stuck in the bins.

As for the story itself, it details a mission undertaken by Ana and Soldier: 76 at some point after the fall of Overwatch.

Unleash the smutty fanfic, please! Unlike with a traditional movie or TV series, most of the lore and story of Overwatch is told through this kind of supplementary writing.

The option will also provide healthcare to undocumented immigrants, said de Blasio, because they are still part of the community. It's going to save us money down the line'. "We're gonna work for those bigger changes", the mayor said.

During the preparation, Soldier 76 pours over some old photographs. 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. Much like Tracer's girlfriend Emily, Vincent seems like an average civilian and will probably not be a future playable character.
