Blizzard continues to “purge” its own projects amid discrimination and harassment scandals. The studio recently decided to rename Jessie McCree from Overwatch as he was named after a leading game designer implicated in the scandals. Now, in the new 9.
1. 5 patch for World of Warcraft, developers will change the names of two achievements that hide vile jokes.
“My Sack is Gigantique” (hint of genitals) and “Bros. Before Ho Ho Ho‘s” (“No friends to bub”) turned into “My Storage is Gigantique” (“My Vault Is Huge”) and “Holiday Bromance” (“Holiday Bromance”).
The first achievement could be obtained from NPC Harris Pilton (a joke about Paris Hilton) by equipping her bag — previously the heroine asks the question of “size”. The second Achivka was given for using the Mumlestle on eight Alliance NPCs that have the word “Brother” in their names.
