Because it's unbelievably silly and unnecessary.

A war automaton that was produced en mass as mindless foot soldiers to crush, kill and destroy all humans by a super advanced AIs being equipped with a specific gendered personality (be it male or female), the capacity to self-identify as a certain gender or sexual orientation or even the understanding of such concepts seems very, very, very unlikely and reeks of people wanting to force it in just because.

Well of course it wouldn't be equipped with it, but if its sapient it nothings stopping it from deciding on a gender

I personally doubt it would but its not that wild of a headcanon

Edit: omnics whole thing is they're learning robots isn't it?

I would argue that Zenyatta has a higher level of sentience since his models are more people-robots than war automatons.

It's proven that robots have IQs but can only sexually become male or female. These robots shouldn't vote.

How was that? Did my best to be Galdus for you.

To start out with yeah, but things change

As an aside, can an Abathur style hero really work in agame as switch heavy as overwatch?

Might be nice to see something similar to Dvas mech though, but remote controlled like was mentioned earlier

Yeah, it could. Overwatch isn't as switch heavy as some like to portray it as.

To get back on topic: Since Blizzard obviously won't let us kill an 11-year old child in a videogame and the article specifically mentioned her talents with robotics and AI as well as hinting at something she's currently building on, she's either

a) An Abathur style hero who sits in base all day and goes into the field by remote controlling a drone or a robot of some sorts, like so many already said

b) She's not the hero at all and is only relevant for his backstory, especially considering how they mentioned that her parents are going to take her to somewhere by plane and that it's her first time flying - let's face it, this is a tragedy waiting to happen

They said it's not doomfist so if something goes wrong with the plane it's probably her own backstory, dead parents and her building robot legs for herself or something afterwards or something in that vein.

Unless there's a timeskip, still an 11 year old girl. This ain't League of Legends.

I saw a leak posted on tumblr (no idea of its legitimacy) that the hero is a quadrupedal omnic called Anchora that Efi pilots remotely.

Probably a timeskip or remote piloting like IGOD mentioned

Is it an Omnic if it's capable of being piloted?

There is no time skip, they said the timeline is current day OW. Anchora or something like that is what's been floating g around as a possible Mech/Omnic Tank

I think they use the term "mech" to refer to piloted robots, like D.Va's thing and the big robots in Volskaya
