The game has had both ethnically diverse and gender diverse individuals and most recently it has been discovered that the game includes a neurodiverse individual. In a letter to a fan, Overwatch creator Jeffrey Kaplan confirmed that the character Symmetra is on the autism spectrum. Kaplan stated that “Symmetra is autistic.
