Blizzard Is Working Quickly To Shut Down ‘Overwatch’ Porn

overwatchPorn parodies seem to be a natural occurrence for all things popular, like Lord of the Rings, Pokemon, X-Men, World of Warcraft, Game of Thrones, and so on. This is why it didn’t exactly come as a surprise to learn that Blizzard’s latest game, Overwatch, also spawn porn parodies of its own.

However as it turns out, Blizzard isn’t too thrilled about these parodies and we guess we can see why. The creators of Overwatch Porn have been using the game’s assets and making them a lot of NSFW things, which by itself we reckon Blizzard is pretty uncomfortable with, but there is also the legal issue of using the Overwatch assets without their permission, which is why Blizzard has been going about trying to shut them down.

Apparently some of the creators of Overwatch porn have been receiving notices of copyright infringement, indicating that they should probably take down their creations of risk being hit with a lawsuit. That being said, not everyone is thrilled about it and one creator has taken to Reddit to protest and try to get the community to pressure Blizzard into stopping these takedown requests.

Whether or not they will be successful remains to be seen, but regardless, Overwatch is said to be one of Blizzard’s more progressive games in terms of representing female characters. For example Zarya is a female character from Overwatch that does not fit your stereotypical female character image, in which Blizzard explained, “There is also talk about diversity in different body types in that not everybody wants to have the exact same body type always represented. And we just want you to know that we’re listening and we’re trying hard and we hope Zarya is a step in the right direction.”

There was also a controversial pose with Tracer that Blizzard has since apologized for. With all these steps taken, like we said, it’s probably not surprising that Blizzard isn’t thrilled about their assets being used for adult purposes.
