Whether they’re being spammed in the pre-game lobby or yelled across the map to announce an ultimate ability, Overwatch characters’ voices are important for a variety of reasons and important scenarios. An Overwatch hero is more than their design, their kit, or their powerful ultimate. A hero is brought to life by a voice actor—and Overwatch has some of the best in the business.
Blizzard is known for its great voice acting in games like World of Warcraft or Diablo—and Overwatch is no different. The talent is the same as the ones who voice the heroes in animated shorts and other media, so the choice behind who is cast is huge.
