Overwatch fans are always hungry for new content. Blizzard Entertainment is well known for releasing new content through different updates. The developers make sure that their players are always enjoying the game; this is why new events take place from time to time. Since we’re in the second month of a new year, fans are wondering what stuff they will get to see in the future. So, without any further delay, let’s take a lot at what updates and events are next for Overwatch.
At the moment, Overwatch fans are currently enjoying the annual Lunar Year Event. This event started last month and is currently scheduled to stay live until February 5. The Lunar Year Event is being celebrated in Overwatch with the return of the Capture the Flag game mode. In addition to this, there are various new things for players to unlock. All skins that were available in the previous Lunar Year Event are also present with new skins. They can be purchased from the Hero Customization tab. The best thing about old skins is that there is a special discount on them.
After the Lunar Year Event is gone, fans can expect to see another event soon. At the moment, it is currently believed that the next event of Overwatch is going to be the annual Archives event. This event might feature a brand-new game mode that you can enjoy with your friends. In addition to this, you can also expect to see some old skins making a return with a special discount on them. In any case, be prepared to spend some more money on new skins.
Players can also expect to see new heroes in the game soon. We all know that Blizzard Entertainment adds new characters from time to time, but its been some time since we saw a new one. Therefore, we can expect the developers to introduce what they have been cooking recently. They might even decide to introduce more than one characters to the game, but this will be confirmed only when Blizzard officially announces it. In any case, we will get to play with a new character in the coming months.
The second part of the series, Overwatch 2 is also in the works. The sequel was announced during BlizzCon 2019, and everyone was excited to hear about it. The developer even released a short trailer for it to give an idea about what to expect from the second part. It is said that Overwatch 2 will feature a new engine and an enhanced look.
In addition to this, there are also going to be new maps that will create a link between the campaign and multiplayer mode. At the moment, it is yet to be revealed when the second part will be released. The Brazilian PlayStation Twitter account did claim that Overwatch 2 will get released some time this year, but this information is yet to be officially confirmed or denied.
