Overwatch McCree will be renamed next week

Blizzard has fulfilled its promise to change the name Overwatch For the role of Jesse McCray, the changes will take effect next week.

From October 26th, McCree will start from now In the name of Col Cassidy.


As early as August, the studio announced that the name of the cowboy would be changed to “more representative” of the meaning of the game, because the name of the character is Diablo 4 chief level designer Jesse McCray.

The name change is part of Blizzard’s new policy, which prohibits naming any characters or locations in the game after current and former employees. The company also recently removed the mention of former World of Warcraft creative director Alex Afrasiabi from the MMORPG.

Jesse McRae is just one of the former Activision Blizzard employees involved in the California lawsuit against the company, and was subsequently fired along with other senior employees a few months ago.

The level designer is one of Blizzard employees and has been accused of sexual harassment, bullying or discrimination against female employees. The company has also come under fire for its unfair compensation practices for women and minorities, and many senior executives have accused it of not taking effective remedies to combat the rampant “fraternity culture” in the studio.

Since then, Activision Blizzard reached an agreement with the California Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, promising to establish a $18 million fund to compensate and compensate eligible claimants.

However, the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing has formally opposed the settlement between the company and EEOC, saying that the settlement will cause “irreparable harm” to its investigation of the company.
