Overwatch Season 20's map pool will be released when the season begins. Blizzard typically withholds information about which maps will appear in the competitive rotation until the season itself begins. Season 20 appears no different.
Overwatch Season 20 Map Pool to Be Revealed at Season Start
Overwatch Season 20 is scheduled to begin Jan. 2, the same day Overwatch Season 19 will end, according to Blizzard's relatively new resolution to begin competitive seasons on the first Thursday of every other month. The exact update time is unknown, but Season 19 began at 1 p.m. ET. A similar launch time appears likely.
Season 19 was the first to introduce a limited map pool. The maps in the pool for Season 19 were as follows:
- Assault: Hanamura, Temple of Anubis, Volskaya Industries
- Control: Nepal, Lijiang Tower, Busan
- Escort: Dorado, Watchpoint: Gibraltar, Havana
- Hybrid: Hollywood, King’s Row, Eichenwald
Excluded from that list were Paris, Horizon Lunar Colony, Ilios, Oasis, Junkertown, Rialto, Route 66, Blizzard World and Numbani. Players can likely expect those maps to appear in the next rotation.
