Know Your Lore: Moira O’Deorain and Overwatch’s continuing mysteries Is there such a thing as going too far in the pursuit of science? Most would say yes, there is a moral line that shouldn’t be crossed.
Know Your Lore: King’s Row and Overwatch Uprising When we initially heard the story behind the Overwatch organization, it was pretty straightforward. A group is formed to counter a crisis, the group is successful, and the group’s popularity wanes over time until it’s finally disbanded.
Know Your Lore: Ana Amari and new Overwatch heroes Overwatch was initially founded at the behest of the United Nations during the Omnic Crisis to help combat the omnic menace. It was a small team in those early days with just six founding members — Gabriel Reyes, Jack Morrison, Reinhardt Wilhelm, Torbjörn Lindholm, Liao, and Ana Amari.

Fallen heroes – Overwatch’s Soldier: 76 and Reaper origins The Overwatch team may have solved the world’s biggest conflict to date when they came out victorious from the Omnic Crisis, but that didn’t mean the organization was flawless.

Soldier 76, deceased Overwatch hero Jack Morrison? There are a few seedy sides of the internet that give rise to wild conspiracy theories. Apparently formerly respected journalist Olympia Shaw has fallen down that rabbit hole, because her most recent editorial gives rise to an absolutely cockamamie theory.
