The son of Brian Lemond, creator of the BBC hit Limmy’s Show, found a custom “game” within Overwatch 2 that allowed players to simulate rape and sexual harassment, according to co-owner Lynn McGowan.
She tweeted, “Don’t let your kids play Overwatch.
“My 12-year-old son found games dedicated to him, one called “Sexual Harassment” and one game that simulated female characters being raped.
Don’t let your kids play Overwatch. My 12 year old son found games designated inside him, one called “Sexual Harassment” and one game simulating female characters being raped. Fortunately, my son realized it was bad, closed the game, and told me. Do not play # Observe and monitor

“Luckily, my son realized it was bad, closed the game, and told me.”
Overwatch 2 is a first-person sci-fi video game aimed at kids.
It allows players to create their own games within the game such as a sexual harassment simulator.
According to PC Gamer, the game allows the player to fire a “flashbang” at female characters, followed by an instant-read “Tbag to fuck”. The player then crouches over the fallen female figure while text appears on the screen saying: “Rape…”
The female characters are then labeled “pregnant” before another character emerges to simulate childbirth, the site reported.
Limmy tweeted: “Here are some screenshots I found on Twitter simulating Overwatch 2 sexual harassment. Apparently, it’s been going on since the first game. It would be easy for Blizzard to block it, but it’s not.
“This is a game marketed to 12-year-olds.”
Blizzard Entertainment, the company that makes the game, has been contacted for comment.
