Overwatch 2 has new King of the Hill maps coming soon according to an interview with Dexerto. To the surprise and joy of many in the Overwatch community, Blizzard removed C2P game mode and will release a new game mode Push later in Overwatch 2's life cycle. But that means the King of the Hill is one of the remaining game modes.

While Blizzard has been promoting their new maps and features for Overwatch 2, most of the maps have been for the upcoming Push or Payload game modes. That looks like that could change soon. During an interview, Blizzard Art Director Dion Rogers was asked about new KotH maps. His answer was simple.

"We very much love King of the Hill. We will be making more King of the Hill maps, one maybe sooner than later.” And based on a later quote, it's more than just one.

Fans have been waiting for what feels like forever for Overwatch 2 and it's just around the corner. Players can get excited for Kiriko, the latest hero to join the Overwatch cast.

Kiriko will be a free instant unlock for all Overwatch 1 players in Overwatch 2's Season 1, which is set to begin on Oct. 4.
