A new Overwatch comic begins the story of Kel Cassidy’s new name

In August, Blizzard announced that it would change its name to Overwatch Gunner Jesse McCray as part of its efforts to eliminate references to real characters in the game, especially developers involved in Activision Blizzard’s widespread discrimination and harassment allegations. In order to adapt to the planned changes, it also postponed the new Overwatch narrative arc originally scheduled to be launched in September.

McCree received his new name, Col Cassidy, in October, and today the narrative arc has begun, starting with a new digital comic written by Ray Fox and illustrated by Irene Cole, titled Overwatch: New Blood.
