For some time now, the community have been requesting Terry Crews to play Overwatch character Doomfist.
Terry Crews is an active PC gamer and while he plays Overwatch, he stated that he would make an amazing Doomfist. The community heard his call and now, they are also requesting this AAA actor to play a role in Overwatch. Recently, a video powered by Yahoo Sports was made public, giving us a taster of what Doomfist in Overwatch would sound like if played by Crews.
In the Overwatch lore, there are three Doomfists. At the moment, the identity of two of them have been unveiled: The Savior (Abhabu Ngumu) and The Scourge (Akinjide Adeyemi). The Successor unfortunately has yet to be revealed, and voiced! At the moment, the only thing we really know about The Successor Doomfist is that he possesses a golden armlet.
Terry Crews has been involved in Overwatch since November. When the initial idea of Crews playing Doomfist popped on Reddit, Crews replied favorably, stating that he would “LOVE TO PLAY DOOMFIST”.
Blizzard is here. They know what’s up. It’s a win win. Crews is a great guy, great personality, great role model. He’s hyped to be immortalized in Overwatch and we’d all love to see it happen. Jeff, it’s me your brother… I need you to call Terry. (-‘Zig_Zagged’)
