Overwatch Director Jeff Kaplan revealed that a cat in a jetpack was a strong contender for a place in the character roster during the game’s development.

In an interview with Gamespot Kaplan said that they had done a lot of concepting around the cat. The little guy apparently laid the jetpack (as cats do) and would occasionally paw at the controls.

After a lot of internal debate around the character, the team decided that it was one step too far in a game that already features a time-travelling Brit and a gorilla scientist (that speaks).

Kaplan said that there are no plans to re-introduce the flying feline.

While it might have added another quirky character to the game, it would undoubtedly have felt a little odd to shoot a cat out of the sky…
