When is the Overwatch Anniversary Event? The fourth Overwatch Anniversary event is (presumably) quickly approaching, but Blizzard has not announced a release date yet. The event will almost certainly start this month, and it is likely to start sooner rather than later.

Players are already getting excited for the new event and the skins, game modes, and everything else that the event will bring with it. This event will be Echo's first event and her first unlocks since release.

When is the Overwatch Anniversary Event?

Overwatch was released on May 24, which fall on a Sunday this year. The event could start May 12 based on the timeline of previous events and previous Anniversary specials. The event could also start May 19, but it is important to note that no defined date has been announced.

Players should start saving up their credits for the new skins that should start getting announced soon via social media accounts. Don't worry if you don't like any of them or if they aren't for your favorite heroes because the Anniversary event also opens up all the skins from previous events for purchase.
