Rumour: Overwatch's Halloween event returning next week


Witch Mercy returns to make everything right with the world

[Update: Blizzard says the Halloween Terror event will run from October 10 through November 2.]

Word among all the cool kids on Reddit is that that Blizzard's arena-shooter Overwatch is digging out the decorations for a re-run of its popular Halloween event from October 2016.

That in itself was a given, but pictures have surfaced of "new in-store advertisements", along with instructions that they are to be displayed on October 9, leading many to believe that the spooky capers will ensue from the following day, a Tuesday, typically used as a starting point for seasonal events.

This is obviously just a mere possibility. After all, the 2017 Summer event was a week later than many predicted. But, for whatever it's worth, last year's event began on October 11, so it's a reasonable assumption.

Who would you like to see get a creepy new skin this year? I'm hoping for Zombra!
