Two days ago, Blizzard Entertainment teased something called the King's Row Uprising on the official Overwatch Twitter account. This was later revealed to be a new event for the game, the last since the Year of the Rooster event celebrating the Chinese New Year in February. Unlike previous events though, King's Row Uprising will be all about exploring the in-game lore and won't be tied to any real-world holiday or events.
"We've heard the call that a lot of players want a non-real-world-tied event, meaning they want some sort of set event in the Overwatch world," Kaplan told PCGamesN. "The event is going to be something - when players see the event and play the event, I think they'll see that we've been listening to their feedback."
"We've been hearing a lot of desire for more story, people want to know more about the story of Overwatch, they want to know more about the past of Overwatch. I think they want to know more about what's going on between omnics and humans in this world and how did we get there. I think a lot of that will be answered for them."
The original tweet pointed to a new Tracer skin, but Kaplan also teased a new skin for Widowmaker. I also wouldn't be surprised, given the focus, to see new skins for Zenyatta, Bastion, Orisa, and perhaps Genji.
