Due to an ongoing discrimination lawsuit, a game is changing the name of one of its most beloved characters. This gesture of goodwill may not be enough.
One of these iconic characters, the cowboy Jesse McCree, is getting his name changed due to him sharing a name with a now disgraced ex-employee of Blizzard.
The name change was derivative of the ongoing discrimination and sexual harassment lawsuit against Activision Blizzard by the state of California as well as others.
Having said that, it's probably not the best idea to name fictional characters off of real life people to avoid confusing your audience when an event like this occurs.
