Activision Blizzard has renamed Overwatch hero Jesse McCree to Cole Cassidy.
Amidst California’s ongoing lawsuit in opposition to Activision Blizzard, which is going on over reported poisonous office tradition, it was revealed that Overwatch character Jesse McCree was named after a Blizzard veteran of the identical identify who left the corporate in August. The actual-life McCree was one of many males within the image that seems to point out some Activision Blizzard devs posing along with a photograph of Invoice Cosby within the room reportedly informally known as the Cosby Suite.
The Overwatch workforce introduced on August 26 that its hero, McCree, can be renamed and that shifting ahead, no Overwatch heroes can be named after real-life workforce members. At this time, the workforce introduced that the hero beforehand often called Jesse McCree now goes by the identify Cole Cassidy.
“The very first thing a renegade loses is their identify, and this one gave up his way back,” the official Overwatch Twitter account’s tweet reads. “Working from his previous meant working from himself, and every passing 12 months solely widened the divide between who he had been and what he had develop into. However in each cowboy’s life, there comes a time when he was to cease and make a stand.”
“To make this new Overwatch higher – to make issues proper – he needed to be trustworthy together with his workforce and himself. The cowboy he was rode into the sundown, and Cole Cassidy confronted the world at daybreak.”
The identify “Cole Cassidy” will go stay in Overwatch on October 26.
