Ana and Junkrat will be taking a break from the payload to join up with Heroes of the Storm as upcoming characters. Both characters, along with a new map, event, and skins are planned for Blizzard's MOBA title.
Alongside the healing sniper Ana and the explosive Junkrat, the new Heroes of the Storm map is based off another Overwatch property, Volskaya Industries. Called Volskaya Foundry, the new Heroes of the Storm map is a large three-lane map with conveyor belts that either boost your character's speed or slows them down. The last Overwatch map in Heroes of the Storm, Hanamura, has also been removed for improvements.

The Overwatch madness doesn't just stop there as a new event called Pachimari Mania causes Loot Boxes to appear in the starting areas of the pre-match phase. If you manage to open them before the game begins, you'll have a chance to win in-game awards like emojis and sprays.
It won't be much longer I imagine until Blizzard just puts the rest of the Overwatch cast into Heroes of the Storm because why not? The Overwatch heroes are already some of Blizzard's most popular characters.
