When is the Halloween Event in Overwatch 2020? Spooky season is upon us, and that means Overwatch's Halloween Terror is coming up. When does the Halloween Event start in 2020?

When is the Halloween Event in Overwatch 2020?

  • 2016: October 11 to November 1
  • 2017: October 10 to November 2
  • 2018: October 9 to November 1
  • 2019: October 15 to November 4

We can look at the previous four Halloween Terror events to estimate a time for 2020. Previous Halloween Terror events started in the second week of October. Overwatch is updated on Tuesdays and Thursdays, so the event is likely to begin this year on Oct. 8. If not, it will begin on the following Tuesday, Oct.13.

The only time the event did not start the second week of October was 2019, where the event was pushed back to coincide with the Oct. 15 release of Overwatch for the Nintendo Switch. We can expect a return to the norm this year, as there are no other outstanding announcements for Overwatch.

When Halloween Terror returns, you'll be able to get any cosmetics you may have missed from previous events. Of course, there will also be a wave of new Halloween themed cosmetics this year as well.

Halloween Terror is also the only time you can play Junkenstein's Revenge brawl mode.
