Blizzard Purging All Overwatch Porn

Delicious-Dva-Oshiri-by-squidsmith

Blizzard have been excoriated by their own community yet again due to their attempts to purge all adult parody works based on their newly launched FPS Overwatch, a seemingly impossible task if ever there were one.

Ever since its open beta on May 5th, there has been a rampant increase in erotic Source Filmmaker videos for the highly controversial Overwatch, with popular adult video provider Pornhub having previously revealed that searches for the game on their site had elevated by a whopping 800%.

This astronomical boom in titillating content had caught the attention of Blizzard (likely due to the aforementioned statistics hitting mainstream sites), prompting them to start doling out DMCA take-down notices – which have already afflicted a number of renowned ero-SFM creators:

Blizzard-Overwatch-Porn-Expunging-2

Blizzard have yet to provide the reasoning behind their witch hunt, though it is assumed to be an effort to keep up appearances rather than a serious effort to purge the offending content from the Internet, with such an explanation being further supported by the fact that the take-down notices have apparently been issued through other companies to keep Blizzard’s name directly out of the conflict.

Thankfully the event is unlikely to harm 2D illustrators (who can easily file DMCA counter-notifications on the grounds of protected parody speech), only those directly using Blizzard’s official models as many Source Filmmaker creations tend to do – the purging however will likely only pump up demand for Overwatch porn harder still.
