Overwatch 2 players waiting for the return of the legendary Pink Mercy skin have been dealt a huge blow by the producer of the game who dispelled the rumor that it’s coming back soon.

Pink Mercy is a famous, unique, limited-time skin, from Overwatch 1, only obtainable by making a $15 or more donation to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. The skin could be snatched up only between May 8 and 21 back in 2018.

Its aesthetics spawned a huge fanbase devoted to this single cosmetic who awaits its glorious return to the store in Overwatch 2.

Fierce speculation was sparked on March 23, 2023, when Prime Gaming included a clip featuring Pink Mercy in their trailer promising new Overwatch 2 rewards through their program. But the Tweet was deleted hours after being posted.

Jared Neuss, an executive producer of Overwatch 2, confirmed in an April 6 Tweet that the tease was definitely unintentional.

“Pink Mercy being shown wasn’t intentional, sorry. We didn’t create that particular piece and we made sure to correct the error after we saw it,” replied Jared to a fan asking about the Prime Gaming ad featuring Pink Mercy.
