Our Lunar New Year 2019 start time page contains global launch details for the US, UK, Europe and other global time zones.
Blizzard has confirmed that Overwatch's Year of the Pig event will begin on Friday 24th January and will once again be used as a vehicle for celebrating Chinese New Year.
What time will the Year of the Pig 2019 actually start though?
The Overwatch team has established a fairly reliable launch time of 11:00AM PST for the launch of new and returning seasonal events - as well as new maps and heroes. For that reason, it seems pretty likely to us that this will be the start time for Year of the Pig.
Knowing that is all well and good if you're based in Blizzard's corner of the United States, of course. If you live elsewhere in the world though, you might find it useful to refer to our timezone conversion table, which we use for these events and is reproduced for you just a little bit further down the page.
