After the sheer hatred directed at “FratBoy” Blizzard lately, it’s not too surprising to see them trying everything they can to ease the tension. A bit of a stickler for the community was that fan favourite Overwatch cowboy Jesse McCree was named after key player in the assorted accusations against the developers endless sea of sexual harassment claim collectors. So in a stunning display of “We’ll get to it eventually” Blizzard finally got round to dropping the name and connotations from their non ironic cowpoke cosplayer and delivered the new name with a cheeky bit of lore behind it too.

I’m pretty sure this won’t do much to soothe the souls of all the women that Blizzard sexist bros decided were objects rather than humans, but it’s a start I guess… Say hello to Cole Cassidy in game next week.
