In Bastet, we are learning that Soldier 76 (aka Jack Morrison) is gay. In the short story, Jack Morrison is talking with Ana about Vincent. It seems Jack Morrison ended his relationship with his lover Vincent, because for him “Duty comes first”.
Blizzard often stated that Overwatch has some LGBT characters. Last year, they revealed Tracer is gay in a comic for Overwatch and now we learned Soldier 76 too. What do you think about this reveal? Which characters can be revealed as LGBT in Overwatch in the future?
