    Will Mccree get renamed to something else?

    In response to the blue tweet will Mccree be renamed to something else? I hope he isn't deleted. He's one of the fan favorites!!

    .... No.
    They are not gonna delete or rename a fully established, fan favorite character.

    What are you smoking to even consider something so stupid as a possibility?

    Edit: Lmao, nvm. they are changing it afterall.

    I don't think he needs to be renamed, but I wouldn't care too much either if they revealed in a comic that his real name is John Mercer or something like that.

    I like this yellow styling of the overwatch pages on the website, looks so much better than the others.

    Imagine being offended by a imaginary character’s name, so odd to me. Blizzard will probably cave though.

    I see, I know of the tweet but I didn't really read it because I don't need to read about a bunch of frat boys talking about women in "those" ways.

    I think if anything a name change would be in order rather than just flat out deleting him, that would piss players off and that's something they need to try to avoid. I have a friend who mains Mccree and I can imagine he'd be super happy.

    Renaming an Overwatch hero is a much bigger deal than renaming some WoW NPC's

    Agreed, even though it hurts my eyes on some monitors.

    I don't think it's as much about people being offended by the name as it is Blizzard not wanting to let McCree retain that honor of having an Overwatch character named after him.

    Then again, given the state of that game maybe it's no real honor.

    while it disgusts me what happened behind the scene, the character itself has nothing in common with it. And even if they rename him. Like what Pewpewbeamzors?

    I don't think so, and frankly I don't think he should be renamed. He is a an established core character of the game, not some random NPC tucked away in the corner like the Afrasiabi NPCs and references were in WoW. The amount of work to rerecord all of the voice lines referring to McCree is on an entirely different scale than changing around a couple of lines of written text and replacing an unimportant NPC.

    While I disagree, you can set it to the default. Top right settings, Forum skin (2nd from the bottom).

    Modern cancel culture is strong and big companys are even bigger cucks, so i wouldnt wonder if blizz rename him.

    God, the internet was a cool place many years ago. Today its just about shitstorm and people getting offended by everything.

    Humankind would profit if they just turn off the internet, or at least social media, for a year. People these days are all insane an stupid.

    They aren't going to delete McCree from the game.

    A rename isn't off the table, but would not be easily done.

    Only way I can see him getting renamed would be a scenario like Reaper (story wise), stops using his real name for a Super Hero/villian reason.
    That being said, idk shit about the games lore.

    McCree shoots straight from the hip.
