Kazara created the topic: Blizzard Confirms Overwatch Character Has Autism

Snippet -

It has been confirmed that an Overwatch character has autism. It has been speculated for some time that Symmetra is on the autism spectrum thanks to a comment she made in the comic that was focused on her titled A Better World. In it she says; “Asking where I fit on the spectrum, it used to bother me. Because I knew it was true. It doesn’t bother me anymore. Because I can do things nobody else can do.”

This statement resonated with Overwatch fans who have been speculating on what it really meant without any official confirmation. Replying to a fan letter Jeff Kaplan, the Game Director for Overwatch confirmed that she does indeed have autism, adding that she is also one of the most beloved heroes by the team at Blizzard.
