Overwatch: Year of the Rooster Seasonal Event announced

Blizzard has announced the next season event for Overwatch, via its Twitter account. The tweet contains a small video, as seen below, that shows a new Mei skin along with the words, “Good luck, and great fortune await!”

The video also confirms that the even will begin next week – January 24.

The content available in the seasonal event hasn’t been confirmed yet, but as mentioned earlier, there is a new Mei skin shown in the teaser trailer. The Korean Overwatch Twitter account also features a similar trailer showcasing a new D.VA skin, that you can check out below.

The Year of the Rooster event will likely follow the examples of previous the Overwatch events: Halloween, Summer Games, and Christmas, by featuring new skins and possible map variations.

Year of the Rooster also comes ahead of the rumored Valentine’s Day event, set for a reveal and release next month.
