Blizzard will no longer name characters after real people

Overwatch writer Michael Chu explains the origin of McCree’s name.

Jesse McCree, lead level designer on Diablo 4, was one of several senior Blizzard staff dismissed from the company after a lawsuit brought against Activision Blizzard highlighted “numerous complaints about unlawful harassment, discrimination, and retaliation” at the company. He’s also the namesake of an Overwatch character who will be renamed, Blizzard has announced, following calls from the community and casters no longer saying his name while commentating matches.
