Big news for fans of Overwatch! Blizzard released a digital comic today called “Reflections” for the online shooter, which is massively successful and ranks among many’s favorite games of the year. The big news comes as Tracer. lead star of the game, is revealed to be gay. She seeks out a present for her girlfriend before giving her a big kiss!
This is pretty notable that a character as popular as Tracer is among the members of the LGBTQ community, as they’ve been sorely under-represented in the gaming industry. This gives the community a new idol to look up to. This is far from a Bioware romance.
Blizzard stated back in 2015 that Overwatch would star a gay character and now we know who it is! Blizzard has teased that there are multiple gay characters in the Overwatch universe, but Tracer is the first officially confirmed one.
