The next Overwatch event will be loaded with cock

It is the year of the Rooster, after all

It looks like the next timed event in Overwatch won't be Valentine themed, though that still may be something to look forward to in the future. Last night the Overwatch team revealed that the next event will be themed around Chinese New Year, and looks to have a focus on Mei and D.Va. 

We don't know much more than that right now, though it's likely there will be a new timed brawl to go along with the event, similar to those that were available during Halloween, Christmas, and the Summer Olympics. It appears that Mei will be getting a new skin based on traditional Chinese dress. She's shown holding several lai see, or red envelopes. These usually contain money and are traditionally given as gifts during Chinese New Year. Whether they will factor in to the event in some way or may be part of a new emote for Mei is up for speculation.

The Korean Overwatch twitter feed posted a different video featuring D.Va and her Meka suit, which is decked out in Korean livery. D.Va herself is holding a Lucky Bag and wearing a Hanbok, a traditional Korean dress.

The event will begin on Tuesday, January 24, four days before Chinese New Year changes from the Year of the Monkey to the Year of the Rooster. Past Overwatch events have run for three weeks, so you can expect this one to finish up right in time for Valentine's day on February 14.

Good luck and great fortune await! [Twitter]
Happy new year to ♡ you! (Translated from Korean) [Twitter]
