Google has made official the most shipped couple from Overwatch, and it is very surprising. The most shipped couple turns out to be McCree and Hanzo, with Google’s end of year data showing that the term McHanzo being the most popular from all the other Overwatch couple ships.

From Google’s tweet we can also see that Pharmercy (Pharah and Mercy) came second and Reaper76 (Reaper and Soldier: 76) coming second. The search term McHanzo was most popular in Finland with a Google Trends score of 100/100, the second most popular search country being Canada with a score of 79/100. The luckly reason for the interest in ‘ships’ between various Overwatch characters is that the game has built up a very big Tumblr community, with the Overwatch community and Overwatch topic being literally the biggest topic on Tumblr in 2016 and for most of 2017.
