As a Black woman who loves this game, this feels like starving for years and being told to be patient, pizza’s coming. Then, the pizza arrives but you’re not allowed to eat it. It’s there, sitting in front of you, tantalizing you with its stringy cheese and pools of grease but nope, can’t eat it. It’s BlizzCon for fuck’s sake: If there was ever a time to announce the newest character for your game it’d be now. And, to be fair, there’s still another day of conventioning left in which Blizzard could finally feed the legion of Black female fans who’ve been begging for a crumb of representation for a while now. At the very least, it was nice to see her in action—that railgun was pretty sweet.
