Blizzard has finally realised that porn featuring Overwatch characters may be hurting the game

Looks like Blizzard has finally woken to the harsh reality of its ‘now famous‘ game Overwatch, porn taking over Overwatch characters. While porn characters are nothing new. We have had characters from Lord of the Rings, Pokemon, X-Men, World of Warcraft, Game of Thrones adorn porn websites for a long time now. But creating NSFW content from Overwatch and Tracer is something else as they are demeaning the game according to Blizzard.

Porn based on Overwatch sprang up as soon as the game itself was released in closed beta. The Overwatch characters, particularly a female character called Tracer emerged as a star on Pornhub. We had reported how the search for Overwatch and Tracer jumped by 817 % on Pornhub after the release of Overwatch.

Normally gaming companies don’t worry so much of their game characters being turned into porn stars, however, Blizzard isn’t too thrilled about it. Blizzard has found that making NSFW content based on its Overwatch characters has actually given it negative publicity. It is now sending copyright infringement notices to anyone who is associated with Overwatch porn according to Destructoid.

The notice indicates that such content makers should take down their creations of risk being hit with a lawsuit by Blizzard. However, not all are happy with Blizzard’s decision to curtail Overwatch porn. One creator urged the large community on Reddit to pressurise Blizzard into stopping these takedown requests.

Blizzard itself has been at a receiving end for portraying Tracer sexually in this controversial pose.

This Tracer pose caused much dissension among gaming community that Blizzard had to apologize for it. Even with Blizzard taking cudgels with the porn websites over Tracer and other Overwatch characters being turned into porn stars, one thing is certain that they will continue to exist on the world wide web.
