Perhaps it will be released for the Lunar New Year event, which will return in time for the February 16 celebration.
Last year’s event started a few days before Lunar New Year, so a February 13 launch is a possibility.
The Year of the Dog Overwatch event will be similar to 2017’s Year of the Rooster event, although Blizzard has made a number of tweaks based on fan feedback.
Kaplan also thinks fans will be pleased with the “significant” new content launching with the event.

The loot system will also receive a shake up, as Blizzard brings new items to non-event loot boxes later this month.
As part of the new season, Blizzard has changed the way players are paired based on Skill Ratings.
The points difference between the highest and lowest-rated players have been lowered to make games fairer.
“This change should help players at both the lower and higher limits of Skill Rating get placed with allies and against opponents of a similar skill level, which in turn should lead to more satisfying games overall,” Blizzard explains.
