It’s pretty normal for Blizzard to hold seasonal events for its titles, having done the same for World of Warcraft and Diablo in the past. Overwatch’s Halloween event will likely introduce new skins, sprays and voice lines for all heroes.

The Overwatch community believe Sombra will be announced, and possibly released, on October 18, judging by a site that is currently counting up to 100 percent.
