Doomfist's backstory explained

Meanwhile, in other "Overwatch" news, Blizzard has announced that Doomfist will finally move from the PTR [VIDEO] to the game on July 27. The studio also released more information about the playable character's backstory, explaining that Doomfist, whose real name is Akande Ogundimu, hails from a "well-regarded Nigerian family" and is "heir to its prosthetic-technology company." A trained fighter, Doomfist is well-versed in competitive martial arts. However, the Omnic Crisis found a victim in his right arm, which was replaced by his company's cybernetic prosthetics. Doomfist (who isn't voiced by Terry Crews) is set to arrive in "Overwatch" this July 27.
