To recap, Overwatch’s Tracer is gay. Until now that’s been a fact contained to offscreen fiction, but the latest update to the PTR (Public Test Region) has dropped in a new voice line that references Tracer’s girlfriend Emily within the game itself.

If the embed doesn’t work for you, the line is:

The line isn’t available in the regular version of Overwatch yet, but you can expect it’ll turn up pretty soon.
