Overwatch’s Soldier: 76 is gay - and it’s been hinted at for years

Overwatch

Actually, it's more like the aftermath of a mission-the Overwatch BASTET short story appears to be a continuation of Ana's comic Old Soldiers (also written by Michael Chu).

While fans have eagerly scoffed these up, few bonus bits have caused as much excitement as the short story released this morning. You can read the short story Bastet in full via Blizzard. Vincent. "Vincent... I haven't thought about him in years", Ana said. Ironically, many at first disregarded Soldier 76 as Overwatch's only standard hyper-masculine white guy video game protagonist. Ana asks Jack if he still holds a candle for Vincent, but Jack denies it, saying "Vincent deserved a happier life than the one I could give him".

You can take a look at Jack and Vincent sharing happier times below, as well as the accompanying page on which his tale of heartbreak unfolds. All the surveillance power in the world. "He got married. They're very happy". Hopefully, developer Blizzard will soon add such material to the game, though I'm doubtful they'll adopt any of the lines Twitter users are suggesting.

In a thread on /r/CompetitiveOverwatch, user solidus_snake speculated that Blizzard wasn't concerned about Contenders viewership because "they primarily want casual viewers watching OWL".

Abraham looks set to stay with Villa
Hause signed for Wolves in 2014 from Wycombe Wanderers, but has not forced himself into Nuno Espirito Santo's long-term plans. They remain hopeful of convincing the 21-year-old striker to move to Molineux for the latter half of the season this month.

It's not really made clear whether Soldier: 76 is homosexual, bisexual, or something else entirely, but it's a pretty solid indication about the character's background.

To both Tracer and Soldier 76, we say it's an honor to have you serve, soldiers.

Writer Michael Chu confirmed on Twitter that, while the relationship happened a long time ago, both Jack and Vincent identify as gay. But here's some positive reaction to the reveal, which follows the Overwatch holiday comic of 2016's confirmation that the game's cover star, Tracer, is a lesbian.

Others have openly wondered whether if Blizzard will make the queerness an active part of these characters' identities, or if their sexuality will ultimately become trivia.
