Who is Vincent in Overwatch’s new Bastet short story?

Who is Vincent in Overwatch’s new Bastet short story?

Hopefully, developer Blizzard will soon add such material to the game, though I'm doubtful they'll adopt any of the lines Twitter users are suggesting. While staying in an apartment that overlooked one of Hakim's safe houses, Jack shares with Ana a number of photos including one that shows Soldier: 76 with his then boyfriend Vincent.

Blizzard Entertainment has confirmed another one of its characters in the massively popular shooter, Overwatch, is a member of the LGBTQ community.

But a normal life was never the reward for people like us.
Fast forward to today, and we've just gotten our second queer character through a new Overwatch short story. In one scene, Ana and Jack reminisce over old photos, including one of a young Jack with his arm around a dark-haired man - his former boyfriend, Vincent.
Ana was unconvinced. In the early days, Jack talked about him often, floating a dream that the war would end quickly, and maybe he'd have a chance to return to a normal life.
Jack sighed. "We both knew that I could never put anything above my duty".

Ana's Bastet challenge runs through January 28 and all players have to do to earn to new skin is win nine games, there are also five unique sprays available for watching up to six hours of any Overwatch stream, except Contenders. "That's the sacrifice I made".

Jack and Vincent were in a romantic relationship many years ago. "Relationships don't work out so well for us, do they?"

While the response to the reveal of Soldier 76's sexuality has been overwhelming positive, not everybody is happy with how Blizzard has handled it.

Michael Chu, the lead writer of Overwatch, later confirmed on Twitter that Soldier 76, a super-soldier once known as Jack Thompson, identifies as gay. Much like Tracer's girlfriend Emily, Vincent seems like an average civilian and will probably not be a future playable character. Zippy dual pistol wielder Lena "Tracer" Oxton was revealed as gay in the December 2016 comic Tracer: Reflections, also written by Chu.
