Sorry, Overwatch's Mercy Can't Be Your Bae

She's taken.


Do you have a soft spot in your heart for Overwatch hero Mercy? Of course you do. She's a smart, heroic guardian angel that heals the deepest wounds. She's a crack shot with a pistol too and can drop bodies when she needs to.

For many, Mercy is--as the kids say--bae. Well, I have some bad news for you: she's taken. Blizzard's support revealed some interesting information about Mercy to an Overwatch player asking about her romantic availability.

"I'm afraid it's her decision and she's already offered her digital heart to the most noble, handsome, fit, intelligent, and morally upright character in Overwatch: Roadhog," the support rep replied.

"You must understand that, being so good at what she does (healing, of course) she has a lot of candidates ... and the good ol' Hog ate them all...literally. You cannot compete with that, I'm afraid. I hope to not have broken your heart too...much."

Not only is Mercy in a relationship with Roadhog, but he's a cannibal?! I'm starting to doubt the validity of this Blizzard Support employees information. This does not sound like canon. Whatever, everyone knows Mei is bae.
