The Overwatch community managed to raise more than $12.7 million for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation during the Pink Mercy charity campaign.

According to Blizzard, this “is the largest donation by a corporate partner within one year in BCRF’s 25-year history.”

The limited-time legendary Pink Mercy skin was made available on all platforms for $15 from May 8th-21st, with 100 percent of all money raised being donated. The developer also made limited-time male and female Pink Mercy shirts available on the Blizzard Gear Store for $30 each.

In addition to the money raised by the skin and t-shirts, more than $130,000 was donated by viewers of various Overwatch charity streams.

Blizzard recently added Overwatch‘s 28th hero to the Public Test Server on PC. This new character is a giant hamster in a mech called Wrecking Ball and should be hitting the live servers later this month.
