Will There Be Any New Skins?
While The Game Haus has already theorized several potential new skins that could be coming in this event, the trailer did not mention or show any of them. Because of this, its possible there will be no new skins for the 2020 Year of the Rat, instead just a time to buy older Lunar New Year skins. This also comes on the heels of a new PTR patch announcement, although it will likely be at least another week before those changes hit live servers.
The Game Haus will continue to provide news and updates on what new goodies this event will bring to the game and what other things fans can expect from Overwatch in 2020. Stay tuned!
