Who is voicing Sigma?

Roadhog’s voice actor Josh Petersdorf revealed that the person voicing Sigma is none other than Boris Hiestand - who has many credits as both an actor, and an animator. 

His credits as a voice actor include BioWare’s Anthem, and Lord of the Fallen, as well as many as an animator from films as big as Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy and Harry Potter.

While Hiestand is still relatively new to voice acting, he’s had a long history in animation, which seems to be a good pairing for Overwatch.
