Blizzard Is Getting Ready For Another Big 'Overwatch' Event Next Week, Fans Reportedly Mining For Clues [VIDEOS]


"Overwatch" is about to get another big event these coming days. Latest reports said that Blizzard may be planning some sort of Overwatch Easter-themed event for next week, after a teasing the upcoming King's Row Uprising update on Twitter.

Blizzard has recently posted a short teaser video on Twitter that linked to a King's Road Uprising event. That short teaser video has even gone out at the top of the hour on Overwatch's Twitter account. But on Reddit, it's different, "Overwatch" fans are reportedly mining for clues. The King's Row uprising, which has first entered seven years ago, is actually a reference to the popular map, which has gone through some aesthetic changes in the most recent PTR builds of the game. The rumored Overwatch event will be the ideal place for Blizzard to tell Overwatch fans about a new game story, the Polygon reported.

Interestingly, there's some attachment in the Blizzard's recent tweet, suggesting to the game's followers that the said event is being planned for April 11. As for the Easter Sunday on April 16, it's more likely a timed event to coincide with the April public holiday. Perhaps even more intriguing is a reported follow-up Facebook post made by Overwatch lead character artist Renaud Galand. The lead character artist recently made a bold claim that the upcoming update is one of the best things the game studio has worked on since the game first introduced in 2016.

Blizzard is no longer stranger when it comes to hosting big gaming events. The game studio has previously held events for Christmas, Halloween, Chinese New Year and even the Olympics games. As for the rumored Easter Sunday-themed event, there still no words of confirmation coming from the studio company, but the reference to a past uprising suggests that fans can expect more from the game studio in the coming days.

In other Overwatch-related news, Blizzard has just won its case against a German programmer for Overwatch cheats. The game studio has decided to sue the German programmer for "copyright infringement for its works on a certain Overwatch cheat program, the BBC reported.

The California-based court has ruled that Bossland (German programmer) was guilty of 42,818 counts of copyright infringement. As a result, Bossland has been ordered to remove its Overwatch cheat products from sale in the US market. In addition, UK residents can no longer access the homepage of the Bossland program, instead, they greeted by this message that tells them that are no longer allowed to sell the Overwatch cheat programs to UK residents.
