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?"

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.

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.
