Since it was launched in May Overwatch has made a habit of featuring seasonal content, there was the Olympic themed loot boxes during this summers Olympic games and then there was the spooky Halloween loot to be gathered throughout late October. So it will com as no surprise then that it seems like there will also be a festive theme to the game coming very soon.
Yesterday on Twitter the Overwatch team invited us all to join them in some holiday cheer.

The small GIF included showed the Kings Row map covered in snow. This would imply that the developer are planning on not only releasing festively themed loot boxes but also will be updating some of the current maps to give them more of a winter feel. So Kings Row will become a future London equipped with snow, but somehow bereft of crowds amazingly for this time of year.
According to the tweet the new content should be released on December 13th, just in time for us gamers to get into the festive spirit then.
