Overwatch's next event is easy to predict based on the patterns developer Blizzard has found itself executing year after year. The cycle of holiday events has been stable for years, with a few smaller events taking place in between those banner events. Here's what we know about which Overwatch event is next.

According to the standard Overwatch event calendar, the next event will be Lunar New Year. Lunar New Year typically begins in late January or early February and continues into mid-February or early March.

This year's lunar celebration will be for the Year of the Rat, as the Chinese zodiac has cycled back to its start.

It's possible Blizzard will throw a smaller event, in the style of D.Va's Nano Cola Challenge or Ana's Bastet Challenge, before Lunar New Year. Considering those smaller events tend to last two weeks, Blizzard still has time to announce one before the Lunar New Year event window opens. We'll have no way to know what it will be until they do.
