In a recent interview PCGamesN conducted with various members of the Overwatch team, Jeff Kaplan once again proved he’s pretty cool by telling us if he could be any Overwatch hero, he’d be Mercy so that he can wipe out the coronavirus. What a hero.
During interviews with the Overwatch team, we asked them what hero they would want the abilities of if they had to pick one. Geoff Chamberlain out the gate answered Echo because “she can fly and she can turn into anything she wants to”. Touché.
Geoff Goodman, the lead hero designer for Overwatch chose hard-light architect Symmetra. “I’ll go with the practical answer and say Symmetra because of being able to build hard-light things and being able to teleport. I mean who doesn’t want to be able to teleport? That rather than having magical weapons I couldn’t use in my day-to-day.” Sensible. We’re not too sure about the legalities of owning a Telsa canon either.
