Perhaps the bigger news here is that Overwatch didn’t plan a Thanksgiving event, but let’s not digress.
Redditors and data miners have been plundering the Overwatch files and have found lines of dialogue related to a Christmas event. My early speculation is that everyone plays as Zenyatta and they throw snowballs instead of orbs.
Reddit user Venxa also found lines related to an Arena of some kind, with a gladiator and a challenger. Whether this is related to a Christmas event, such as Halloween and Junkenstein’s Revenge, remains to be seen. Santa’s Slay, anyone?
