As with most games, the developer will pay around with the idea and experiment with it before it makes it to the final version of the game. In conjunction with the one-year anniversary of Blizzard’s Overwatch, Game Director Jeff Kaplan reveal some interesting new detail about the game.
One of the things that he mentions was that Mercy was actually the original name for Pharah but they later changed it and gave the name to the Mercy that we have now. In fact, Mercy also had a different name in the beginning. Her first name was Angelica but was later given Mercy.
He revealed more than a few details about the support and tank heroes in the short clip. You can check them out below. The clip for defense and offense hero will also be coming soon.
It will be interesting to see what other secrets the game has.
