Every year, Overwatch Anniversary allows its players to have another chance of earning past hero skins they may have missed; Summer Games, Halloween Terror, Winter Wonderland, Lunar New Year, and Overwatch Archives. Fans are anticipating who will be the heroes for this upcoming event.

At the start of the event, players always receive a hand full of loot boxes to get them started. Fans expect to have great odds in obtaining new sprays, icons, poses, and skins. The chances at the start for players are high to receive these top-tier rewards.

Honorary Icon

On April 20, 2021, Jeff Kaplan announced his departure from Blizzard. Fans want to honor him by having a reward dedicated to Kaplan's contribution to Overwatch over the years. "Great idea. I really hope they make something in tribute of his departure," Metaphysicalunicorn commented on the Overwatch subreddit.

Although the departure is close to the unannounced Overwatch Anniversary 2021 event, it is unlikely we would get such reward. It would be a nice touch though from Blizzard.
