Overwatch's McCree Will Soon Take on a New Name

Overwatch's popular gunslinger will be given a new name, so he will no longer refer to Diablo IV's controversial ex-producer.

Changes announced by the devs of Overwatch will soon become a fact; Jesse McCree - one of the characters available in the game - will take on a new name. Starting October 26, the cowboy will become known as Cole Cassidy.

On the game's official Twitter account, we read that as a renegade, the protagonist decided to abandon his real name. In this way, he was running away from the past and his former self. Now it's time for him to become Cole Cassidy again. For fans of Overwatch this is unfortunately tantamount to a delay in the new story line the character is to receive.

The decision to change the character's name is dictated by the desire to cut the hero off from the man to whom he owes his previous name. Jesse McCree until recently worked as the lead level designer in Diablo IV, but was fired from Blizzard Entertainment following a sexual harassment and mobbing scandal.

The devs have already announced that in the future the characters in their games will not refer to real people. This will enable the company to avoid similar situations and forced changes.
