Overwatch Winter Wonderland 2019 Launches Today

Just like last year, players were asking about one of the fan-favorite events in Overwatch – Winter Wonderland. In 2018, Blizzard updated a lot of their in-game maps with the holiday and Christmas theme including Blizzard World, Hanamura, King’s Row, and the Black Forest. Along with that, players got some really sick-looking skins and cosmetics with this update. Until now, we haven’t heard anything about this event returning this year in Overwatch. But, yesterday, Overwatch officially announced that Winter Wonderland will be returning in Overwatch this year.
