Activision Blizzard is allowing Overwatch players to change their names in honor of the name change for gunslinger Cole Cassidy, formerly known as McCree. Their BattleTag, to be precise.

It’s important to keep in mind what’s going on at Activision Blizzard right now in terms of ongoing workplace culture allegations. The California Department of Fair Employment and Housing’s (DFEH) ongoing lawsuit against the company is based on the company’s over-reported toxic workplace culture. The suit’s main focus is on “violations of the state’s civil rights and equal pay laws,” particularly in relation to the treatment of women and other marginalized groups. Please see our previous coverage for more information on the proceedings thus far, including details listed in the lawsuit against Activision Blizzard.

Do you want to change an embarrassing or outdated BattleTag? Make a new name for yourself in Overwatch starting today and running until November 5. Here’s the official announcement of the promotion, which was announced on the Overwatch website:

“As we introduce a new name, you might have the desire to do the same. Starting 22 October 2021 and continuing through 5 November 2021, all players will be offered a free BattleTag name change. This applies to anyone who does not currently have a free name change available. Existing name changes will not stack for future use.”

That’s right, any player with an existing BattleTag can participate, but it appears to be limited to one free change per account. With this freebie, you’d better pick a good moniker because using the service again will cost you money. The official announcement, which includes a form to submit for a new Overwatch identity, can be found at the link above the quote.
