Overwatch’s McCree has a new name: Cole Cassidy

Overwatch’s resident gunslinger Jesse McCree has been replaced by Cole Cassidy, an honest cowboy.

In a tweet, Blizzard stated that “Running from his history meant running from himself, which each year only widened their gap between who he was and what they had become.” But in cowboys’ lives, there is a point when they have to stop and take a stand.

He had to be open with his team and himself to make Overwatch better. Cole Cassidy, the cowboy he was, rode into sunset and faced the world at dawn.

Activision Blizzard was accused of sexual harassment and discrimination that led to the removal of Jesse McCree (Diablo 4’s lead designer), who was the Overwatch character’s name. In August, Blizzard stated that the character would be renamed to represent Overwatch’s values better.

It was clear that the change was necessary. Many in the community called for it. Some Overwatch casters decided to stop using the name in August and instead refer to him simply as “the cowboy.” However, it fits nicely in Overwatch lore. In the past, it was suggested that Jesse McCree might not have been his real name. Sombra refers to this in the interaction below. Cassidy responds, “Don’t know what I heard, but my actual name is Joel.”

Cole, not Cole. It’s not bad. Although the Joel reference was probably a nod because Joel was McCree’s placeholder name before Overwatch, it seems to have opened the door for this new name change.

In the wake of sexual abuse allegations against McCree, Blizzard renamed several characters in its games. These included multiple World of Warcraft NPCs named after McCree and former Diablo 4 game director Louis Barriga and Jonathan LeCraft, former creative directors Alex Afrasiabi and Cannibal Corpse singer George’ Corpsegrinder. Fisher was also honored in World of Warcraft’s Orc quest giver Gorge The Corpsegrinder. Blizzard stated that characters would not be named after real people.

Cole Cassidy, presumably his real surname, will take his place in Overwatch’s ranks on October 26.
