Blizzard's next bigOverwatchevent is for Halloween 2019, and as well as being a fan favourite seasonal event, it'll also be the first event Switch fans will get to partake in.
Thestart date for Halloween Terroris coming a little later than we were expecting this year, apparently thanks to the Switch release of the game (which is due to go live tomorrow – Tuesday, October 15th).
The new event will, in theory, introducemore Halloween Terror skinsto the game, as well as bringing back a PvE mode for the duration of the event.
We're anticipating the announcement and reveal of the event tomorrow, based on a selection of rumours and insider information, all of which you can recap below.

When does Overwatch Halloween Terror 2019 start?
Blizzard has yet to formally announce the start date for Halloween Terror 2019, but a recent post from an employee supposedly working in a retail store has noted that we're going to see the event go live with when the game on the new platform launches.
A post hinting at theHalloween 2019 Start Timewas posted on Reddit over the weekend, with the title:' Overwatch Switch Servers & Halloween Event '
Apparently, the poster (who works in the gaming section of retail store) and provided a word of caution for anyone looking to play on Switch.
The post notes:
"I work in retail taking preorders and whatnot in the gaming section, head office pushed through an email informing us Overwatch on the switch is unplayable until 7PM BST due to the servers only going up at that time."
"I'd say it's safe to assume that once those servers are up and running the Halloween event will be pushed through too, so if any of you still plan on playing this time around, that should be the date/time to mark down."
