Blizzard hints at possible next event for Overwatch

The Overwatch CNY event — Year of the Dog, is still ongoing, but Blizzard seemingly hinted at the game’s next seasonal event. The official Overwatch twitter recently tweeted an Overwatch report about Operation ZX24AL, “WHITE DOME.”

The tweet is an After-Action Report of an Overwatch Operation named “WHITE DOME.” The operation has Overwatch operatives Ana, Reinhardt, Torbjorn, and a new character named Emre Sarioglu. The four operatives were sent to deal with a remaining pocket of omnic resistance in the outskirts of Istanbul, Turkey.

After insertion though, the strike team was ambushed, resulting in injuries to Tobjorn and Reinhardt. Though the team did manage to neutralize the omnic forces without any casualties.

Last year, the Overwatch CNY event was followed up by Uprising, which featured a co-op brawl against omnic forces in London. And it seems like Blizzard is bringing back Uprising but with a new setting and mission; it’s possible that this year’s Uprising event will feature the WHITE DOME operation.

What’s even more exciting is that Blizzard may have hinted at the next Overwatch hero in Private First Class Emre Sarioglu. It’s possible that the upcoming event may coincide with the new hero’s launch.

Whatever the case may be, Overwatch fans should keep their eyes peeled in the coming weeks, as Blizzard might drop some more hints soon.
