Overwatch may be a game about pushing payloads, shooting, and capturing points but there’s a backstory to all the calamity. With lore being dished out in cinematics and stories. With the latest story called “Bastet” Soldier 76 and Ana confirming that Jack Morrison is homosexual.

At one point in the story Soldier 76 reveals he was in a relationship with a man named Vincent.

“Vincent… I haven’t thought about him in years,” Ana said. “Still keeping a candle lit for him?”
Jack shook his head. “Nothing like that.”
“You’ve never looked in on him? You must have been curious. All the surveillance power in the world. I bet Gabe would have put a Blackwatch agent on him if you asked,” Ana said.
Jack glared at her.
“Okay, touchy subject.”
Jack laughed. “He got married. They’re very happy. I’m happy for him.”

“Vincent deserved a happier life than the one I could give him.” Jack sighed. “We both knew that I could never put anything above my duty. Everything I fought for was to protect people like him… That’s the sacrifice I made.”
“Relationships don’t work out so well for us, do they?” Ana said, unconsciously running her thumb over where her wedding ring used to be.

Soldier 76 isn’t the only the only gay character in Overwatch, with British pilot Tracer also being confirmed as gay in the earlier years of the game but was received negatively similar to her butt pose which caused massive uproar within the gaming community.

Overwatch is now available for PS4, PC, and Xbox One. Check out our review here.
