    I think so. The promo vid is not the map used in previous halloween events.

    Is that the deathmatch castle in horror mode perhaps?

    Daughter says Moira is getting one so I'm going to guess she's the bride of junkenstien.

    So Junkinstien’ castle. Overwatch is gonna need to really bring it come Blizzcon. Something new has to happen more than just a map or character rework.

    Why? Still has a ton of players.

    Look at Lucioball during the summer and how slammed servers were.

    Eh, Overwatch is one of those games that is doing just fine, it doesn't have the popularity that Fortnite has, quite frankly it doesn't NEED to, to be successful either. The fact the game has enough popularity to warrant there being OWL teams and the World Cup is more than enough evidence Overwatch is fine and won't go anywhere anytime soon.

    It fills a niche market with what it currently offers and it doesn't need to do something brand new or exciting to remain relevant.

    A good example is Counter Strike, they haven't really innovated in years but people still love to play it in droves, same goes with League. Both are successful in their own right and don't need to change the mould.

    The biggest letdown is that the trailer they made for it would have been actually the best way to do a new event for it. You have the map, you have the characters models, you have the mechanics and you have the code, they could have just added some gates as you move around the mansion that open up after a boss fight thats really the only new thing needed. I guess they would need to build AI for some of the characters to, but all that stuff doesn't seem really daunting. Real disappointment.
