Blizzard Reveal Launch Date For Overwatch Lunar New Year 2019


Good people of Overwatch, a new event looms on the horizon.

Blizzard has revealed the launch date for Year of the Pig, the Lunar New Year celebrations for 2019.

The themed event will launch on January 24, 2019, with skins being revealed every day via the Overwatch social channels between the 19th and the 24th.

This was revealed by a short Twitter video with Soldier 76 playing a musical instrument, which many fans are now hoping Blizzard has turned into an emote.

The event will wrap up on February 8, so log in and grab those skins while you still can!

We imagine that there will be a whole range of cosmetics to unlock, and as per last years Year of the Dog celebrations, a special game mode with some relation to the Pig motif.
