Calculating Overwatch's past release events they have been usually announced between July 16th and August 29th. Players can expect the Summer Games to be announced at the beginning of August. The Summer Games imitates the Olympics, adding a handful of sports themed items to Overwatch. Weekly challenges add to the fun that follow a similar design from past events:

  • Win 3 games – Icon
  • Win 6 games – Spray
  • Win 9 games – Skin

Lucioball adds to the fun with two maps: Sydney Harbour Arena and Busan Stadium. These two stadiums will push Lucio Players to show off their skills in wall riding and agility. Lucio Ball Remix should also be featured, a more chaotic version from fan-favorite summer game.
