While there’s always something exciting in development, I’m less interested in what’s in progress — especially when it’s likely to change a lot — than in what’s an in-game reality.

Omnic Crisis fallout: Overwatch’s Junkrat and Roadhog origins The Omnic Crisis was pretty much that one explosive historical moment that served as the impetus for a lot of world-changing events on Earth in Overwatch.
