Symmetra Fans Will Be “Very Pleased Soon,” Says Overwatch Director

Overwatch is full of diverse characters for players to choose from and many players have their favorites. However, fans of Symmetra were quite disappointed with Blizzard setting her aside every time a new event rolls around and the number of unique skins the character gets but that seems to be changing soon.

The recent Overwatch Uprising event also ignored Symmetra as she was not part of the story, but still to her fans the event was another missed opportunity. Symmetra also ranks quite low in terms of characters who have alternate legendary skins and fans have raised their concern on the official forums requesting Blizzard to release a legendary skin for Symmetra.

It seems that Blizzard Entertainment has listened to Symmetra’s fans and Overwatch game director, Jeff Kaplan, has assured that the fans will soon get some good news saying “I think Symmetra fans will be very pleased soon”. While it is very unspecific but given that the Kaplan mentioned it in the thread where lack of Legendary Skin for Symmetra was being discussed we might see new skins for the character.

Speaking of the character, Blizzard Entertainment has also confirmed a fan theory about Symmetra. This confirmation gives credibility to the Overwatch fan theory that has been circulating the internet since May 2016, that Symmetra is autistic. A letter from, Overwatch’s game director, Jeff Kaplan, explicitly referred Symmetra, which is one of the most intriguing characters, as autistic for the first time.

It’s very astute of you to notice that she mentioned the spectrum in our comic. Symmetra is autistic. She is one of our most beloved heroes and we think she does a great job of representing just how awesome someone with autism can be.

Furthermore, Overwatch has become the 8th Billion Dollar franchise for Activision Blizzard. In the Activision Blizzard’s latest earnings report, the company revealed that the game has crossed a big milestone in terms of sales, actively becoming a “billion-dollar franchise” in the process joining the ranks of the franchises such as Call Of Duty and World Of Warcraft.

Overwatch is a first-person multiplayer shooter developed by Blizzard Entertainment for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
