It adds that you can also buy PlayStation or Xbox balance cards for loot boxes on the console.

Usually, Blizzard would make an official announcement a day before an event. Hence, many are not surprised that there isn't any news of a Halloween event yet. But with the leaked details on Reddit, it appears that the wait is now over. However, the poster may also mean that the official start of the event is on Oct. 10 with an announcement slated on Oct. 9.

Along with the poster is a placeholder post that says "10/9/17 Overwatch GME POSA Spinner Header Card." Fans of the game need to take this news with a grain of salt since it isn't an official announcement from Blizzard yet.
