Overwatch 2 fans discuss their least favorite bits of Lore

They really had to do it to Genji like that.

Despite being primarily a multiplayer title (fans’ wishes notwithstanding), the Overwatch series has a surprising amount of lore surrounding its entire cast. From the outside, the game looks like a standard hero shooter, but those more familiar with Overwatch know that each character has a detailed backstory and sometimes complex relationships with other characters that can be pieced together through in-game dialogue.

With all of these characters, there are bound to be two or three that Blizzard has let go of over the years, and Overwatch fans have shared their grievances with some parts of the game’s overall history. For example, u/Xion194 kicks things off on the Overwatch subreddit by explaining that they think the way Hanzo “kills” his brother Genji makes no sense, since he takes him out in a much more brutal way than someone who is forced to kill. their brother probably would.

Another user called u/apolsen takes issue with the game’s world building rather than a specific character, as they question why Germany seems to have regressed to the Middle Ages despite the world’s advances in technology and warfare, likely referring to the map Eichenwalde. I guess the country finally decided on the tried and true method of “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”

We then have a couple of fans who would like certain characters to get a bit more lore than they actually have at the moment. Sigma is one such person, who u/amr_jkl thinks should have been fleshed out a bit more considering he’s a scientist than can create black holes on command. Another user wishes Blizzard would bring back Soldier 76’s love interest, while u/pituparty wishes Lucio had a little more knowledge about his brief cereal box appearance.

While it would be nice if Blizzard expanded on some characters in the future – perhaps with the promised PvE mode – it doesn’t look like it’s happening anytime soon. Overwatch’s social media accounts would rather you look at Ramattra’s toenails at the moment, which some people out there would probably prefer.
