'Overwatch' downloadable content rumors: Skins may have revealed Pharah's father


“Overwatch” is just one of those games that keeps on giving. Blizzard Entertainment released a new batch of characters and events to further improve gameplay. Here’s a look at what’s in store for the players of Blizzard’s latest franchise. 

The latest role-playing game (RPG) is known for its robust roster of playable personalities. Now with 23 characters, Blizzard keeps on adding more characters that the gamers can use during battle, or to continuously tell some of the hidden stories in the game. 

One of the stories that intrigued the gamers is the story behind Pharah’s father. Pharah is one of the heroes in “Overwatch” who dreams of following the footsteps of her mother, Ana. The latter is one of the founding members of “Overwatch,” served as Commander Morrison’s second-in-command. 

Reddit user Decibelle recently posted a theory that Reinhardt is the father of Ana by looking at the character skins. According to the user, the other characters in the game have four distinct skins that have an underlying theme: elements, colors, language and more. However, Pharah is different from the other characters because she possesses two metallic and two jewel skins as well as Amethyst, Emerald, Copper and Titanium ones.

Reinhardt, the rumored father of Pharah, possesses Brass, Cobalt, Copper, and Veridian, all metal skins. Meanwhile, her mother acquired Citrine, Garnet, Peridot and Turquoise, which are jewel skins. 

Since it is known that Reinhardt and Ana used to work together. There is a possibility that the theory is true. 

According to GameNGuide, Blizzard may choose to use these side stories as a new expansion in the future. Since the multiplayer feature is the focus of the game currently, the developers may just be basking in the fame of the game right now.

“Overwatch” is available now for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
