Overwatch Chinese New Year 2020 event: Lunar Year of the Rat release date and latest skins 1

Overwatch developer Blizzard is getting ready to hold its annual Chinese New Year event, just a few weeks removed from its Christmas extravaganza. Celebrating the Year of the Rat, the Overwatch Lunar New Year event for 2020 is coming to PS4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch very soon. Read on to find out more.

While Blizzard is yet to make an official announcement, fans have a pretty good idea about what to expect based on previous years.

The actual Chinese New Year celebrations officially begin on Saturday, January 25 – which is less than two weeks away.

With Overwatch events traditionally beginning on Tuesdays or Thursdays, the Year of the Rat tie-in could begin as early as Thursday, January 16 at 6pm UK time.

If there’s no sign of the event on Thursday, then it will almost certainly begin on Tuesday, January 21 at 6pm GMT.

Of course, Blizzard could throw a major curveball and stealth launch the event before then, so stay tuned for more information.

In the meantime, check out the list below for a look at previous Lunar New Year release dates, which should give you an idea about what to expect.
