If the latest buzz is to be followed, Blizzard Entertainment is incorporating character bios and story information in “Overwatch.” The studio has also reportedly confirmed the fan theory about the character Symmetra.

According to Polygon, a letter from “Overwatch” director Jeff Kaplan has reignited the conversation about one of the game’s most-intriguing and intense heroes, Symmetra. A viral image has surface online on Tumblr where Kaplan is seen explicitly referring to Symmetra as autistic for the very first time. Moreover, Blizzard has also confirmed that Kaplan’s note about Symmetra is accurate and true. This is a welcome relief for players who have believed in a fan theory since May 2016, when Symmetra’s back-story began to be filled out slowly.

“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,” Kaplan writes in the note.

In “Overwatch Symmetra: A Better World,” the character described herself as always being seen as different. In the comic, she explains how, at first, she was bothered, as she did not know where she fitted on the spectrum. However, now she is not bothered any longer as she knows she can do things no one else can. Symmetra has been widely referred to as a hero on the autistic spectrum. The “Overwatch” game doesn’t have a story mode. Hence, players refer to the comics to learn more about their favourite characters.

Fans found out via the comics that Tracer is “Overwatch’s” first lesbian character. According to PVP Live, “Overwatch” fans, have always been befuddled by the lack of character information in the game. They had to rely explicitly on character interactions and other forms of media. All that is reportedly going to change, as Blizzard, is looking to integrate in-game client more with the game’s story.

“We're actively working on getting character biographies and story information displayed in-game. We have some different ideas about how to do this, and you'll probably see the results rolling out little by little in future patches. Ideally, we'd love for you to be able to get most of this information in the game, so it's something we'll continue to work towards,” Lead writer Michael Chu revealed in the “Overwatch” forum.

Blizzard is also working on some pretty significant character changes, ahead of the release of new character Orisa, “Overwatch” patch notes from PTR server has revealed.
