Sony Clarifies It Isn’t Making Any Profits From Overwatch’s Pink Mercy Skin

Blizzard’s Pink Mercy skin has been a hit with players, due to its colorful look and the character’s popularity.

The wording on the PlayStation 4 store page stated that “Blizzard Entertainment will donate 100% of the proceeds that it receives from Sony PlayStation,” where the Xbox One page states “Blizzard Entertainment will donate 100% of the purchase price for your purchase of the Pink Mercy skin on Xbox.”

It doesn’t seem immediately clear that there’s any insinuation that Sony is keeping any of the profits, but there is a difference in wording between the two stores. When reached for clarification via VG247, a SIEE representative stated “We are not making any profit from sales of the Overwatch Pink Mercy Skin,” via email. The wording on both game stores is similar on the US and UK versions of the skin, though it appears that Sony has cleared things up once and for all in terms of the statement it provided.
