Soldier 76, a major character in first-person shooter video game Overwatch, has been revealed as gay.
A short story released on Monday (January 7) has shown fans that the macho Overwatch fighter, whose real name is Jack Morrison, used to have an ex-boyfriend called Vincent, according to Mashable. This makes him the second queer Overwatch character after Tracer.
In the story, titled “Bastet,” Overwatch protagonist Ana asks Soldier 76: “Vincent… I haven’t thought about him in years. Still keeping a candle lit for him?”
Soldier 76 responds, “Nothing like that,” before revealing that Vincent “got married. They’re very happy. I’m happy for him.”
