Reddit users have datamined new voice lines from a new refurbish to Overwatch’s open exam realm, where developer Blizzard Entertainment releases rags for PC players to try out before they make it into a full game. Among characters creation their New Year’s resolutions and Reinhardt losing his cold on a blazing Oasis map is one intense review that many fans are conference as acknowledgment of one of their many argumentative pairings.
In a thread on a Overwatch subreddit, user akhanubis posted 3 voice lines between cyborg ninja Genji, his hermit Hanzo and a Swiss healer Mercy. In a first, Genji asks Hanzo if he has any chocolates.
After being rebuffed, it turns out that Mercy has some that she got generally for Genji. (“Swiss — they’re a best!” she says.) Note also that Genji calls Mercy by her tangible name, Angela.
Genji afterwards earnings to Mercy with some chocolates of his possess that he brought for her — nonetheless they’re not Swiss, he warns, that Mercy finds somewhat disappointing.
That wraps adult a brief and honeyed arc between a two, that finds them some-more plainly sexual toward any other in a diversion than ever before.
This is outrageous for some Overwatch players who wish to see Genji and Mercy get together. The pairing has a fan-created integrate name, Gency, and a backstory that supports any probable romance. Mercy nursed Genji behind to health as he grew accustomed to his new cyborg body, and a span have remained tighten ever since.
Most recently, a holiday comic expelled in Dec showed Genji and Mercy presumably promulgation any other letters, that many forked to as explanation that Genji and Mercy were going to get together. That’s to a beating of some people, who’d many rather see Mercy date Pharah, a daughter of Ana — or, really, only anyone else.

These new voice lines, and maybe even a full-on attribute reveal, seem tailor-made for a Valentine’s Day-themed event, though executive Jeff Kaplan formerly reliable that Overwatch won’t be removing one of those. Expect other holidays to be distinguished in-game instead — and maybe one of those will be regretful adequate to move Genji and Mercy closer together.
