At some point in the past, Echo was involved with Overwatch in some capacity. She was put into stasis for unknown reasons. It is implied this may have been prior to McCree losing his arm.
Some time after Winston initiated the recall of Overwatch agents, McCree set off to locate Echo. His journey would lead him to Route 66, where the train transporting Echo was intercepted by Ashe, Bob, and other members of the Deadlock Gang. After a brief skirmish, McCree bested his former gang and sent them away via a payload. He then brought Echo out of stasis by inserting some sort of chip into her chest.
Echo questioned how long she has been gone, to which McCree replied "Too long." Noticing McCree's prosthetic robot arm, Echo asked what happened. McCree states that's a story for another time. He went on to explain that a recall of Overwatch agents has been initiated, and while they wanted him, they needed Echo. McCree then departed saying he has business to attend to, leaving Echo to find her way back to Winston.
- Echo was revealed on November 2, at BlizzCon 2018.
