With the Halloween event over, the next unconfirmed (as of yet) event on Overwatch’s calendar is the Christmas (or Holiday) event.
Dataminers have discovered that there are 4 new map files coming to Overwatch. One of them appears to be a holiday event similar to Junkenstein’s Revenge, while there will be at least one Christmas/holiday-themed map. There might be up to three, but it’s unclear because of the way the key is coded.
According to the datamine, everyone will be getting a holiday-themed spray, voice line, and victory pose just like in Halloween.
Widowmaker, Reinhardt, Mercy, Symmetra, Reaper, Sombra, Roadhog, D. Va, Ana, Soldier: 76, and Lucio have been mined to get either a costume, emote, or a highlight intro.
And then these characters will have two of either a costume, emote, and highlight intro: Winston, McCree, Mei, Pharah, Zarya, Tracer, and Zenyatta.
Lastly, Torbjorn is getting all three of an emote, costume, and a highlight intro – which suggests the earlier rumors of Santabjorn being true.
The speculation of the dataminer is that the event will kick off on December 13th, which will give the community 3 weeks to enjoy the event.
Update: We’ve found new information that suggests Santabjorn is on the way.
