If you are a fan of Overwatch you would have definitely heard of the Overwatch porn scene which is surprisingly so big that the developers had to start taking action themselves – to the utter dismay of many among us.

Tons of videos have been created and uploaded on adult websites by fans, but the problem is that technically all those videos are illegal use of a copyright that is owned by Blizzard Entertainment, which gave them the right to ask websites to take down many of those videos.

Are You Overwatching Overwatch Porn?

Not that every developers coming across such a situation would do that, but clearly the amount of adult videos being made for the likes of Tracer and the Widowmaker were beyond normal, which is probably why the developers have taken a step.

What’s more there are Subreddits dedicated to it and Tumblr pages are just a norm. Tracer is the most searched character on PornHub and the searches for Overwatch porn have gone up by a gigantic 800 percent this month!

The reason why this is so popular? Well, porn has always been made on competitive multiplayer games, people look for some on Halo, Call of Duty and also Minecraft, it is abundantly normal for there to be a chunk of the community that is interested. However, Overwatch brings a lot more context with the backstory of each character.

The game is also is crazy famous itself, with 9.7 million people opting in for the beta (largest ever?) the adult videos community is naturally larger.

However, Blizzard Entertainment probably thinks this is tarnishing the image of the game – remember the whole ordeal with Tracer’s butt? Which is why a number of uploaders have received messages about their content being removed due to copyright violations.

Various people on Reddit and elsewhere are asking the community to urge Blizzard so that they stop the takedowns, but we don’t see the developers rolling over for this one. An agency called Irdeto has apparently been hired by Blizzard, and we are fearing the days of Overwatch porn are limited.
