The Overwatch Christmas event will begin next Tuesday 13th December. The news was revealed on the official Overwatch Twitter account a little earlier on this evening.
This date falls in line with the prediction we made in our Overwatch Christmas event guide a couple of weeks ago, and we're still keeping our money on an end date three weeks later. This is roughly in line with the duration of previous events in the game.
Don't forget to check out that guide for plenty more information on what you can expect from the seasonal event. We've had a good look at historical sprays, skins, emotes and what-have-you, and used that information to predict what's likely to be coming with the Christmas patch.
