Blizzard is fully dedicated to releasing new Content for “Overwatch” almost every month. Just this month, we’ve seen the arrival of Doomfist who has been a pretty popular character among the fans. Similarly, we’ll also be getting a Deathmatch mode which relies purely on individual skill than teamwork.

Along with this, the developers have also made a new map specifically for that mode which reflects Widowmaker’s lore. With all of these new additions, we can only ask ourselves: What’s next for “Overwatch”? Well, here are a few guesses we have for the same.

New event

While the Summer Games 2017 is still ongoing, Halloween is also fast approaching. For those unaware, the current event is actually a rehash of the one from last year, with the exception being the 40+ new content.

In line with this, many fans are also expecting the Halloween Terror event to make a return. If that’s the case, expect it to arrive within a few months as October is fast approaching. It makes perfect sense that the highlight for September would be the Deathmatch mode and new map, so the spotlight for the following month would be another Halloween event. However, Blizzard has yet to reveal their plans for any upcoming events.

New hero

Following October, we have November which marks for BlizzCon 2017.

This convention usually has some special announcements for Blizzard games, and it wouldn’t be too surprising if they decided to release another hero at this time. The developers usually release a new hero after every 3-4 months or so, and Doomfist was released earlier this month. With that being said, it would only make sense for Blizzard to add another hero after the event. With Ana, Doomfist, and Sombra already released, the new hero could be completely unexpected as there aren’t many clues that point to who they might be. We’ll just have to see what Blizzard has in store for “Overwatch” in the upcoming convention.

Another event or game mode

Finally, we have December which usually focuses on the holidays. Last year, they released the Winter Wonderland event which wasn’t as popular as the other in-game occasions. Blizzard could easily retcon the event for something much better in honor of the holidays. On the other hand, Blizzard could skip a December event altogether and release a new arcade mode instead. It’s a tough prediction for December, but this is what we have so far.

In spite of this, a majority of the fanbase would prefer having an event that comes complete with new cosmetic items.
