Blizzard have announced that they will be launching an Overwatch holiday event next week. This is based off of a tweet from the official overwatch twitter account.
The event will be kicking off on the 13th of December, unfortunately Blizzard haven’t given us any more information about the event, except a rather poetic GIF that invites fans to the holiday event on the 13th. You can check out the tweet below.

This upcoming holiday event will be Overwatch’s third time limited special event. The last two events Overwatch held were the Summer Games which were themed around the Olympic Games and Halloween Terror for, as you can guess, Halloween. Both of these events featured limited time game modes and a lot of custom items such as costumes, emotes, sprays, voice lines and more.
Blizzard still has a lot planned for Overwatch. A new map titled Oasis will be coming as well as some major character and gameplay changes in the next patch.
