Overwatch’s Anniversary event for 2021 is set to start on the 18th of this month.
Overwatch releases the majority of its content through seasonal events like Halloween Terror, Winter wonderland, Summer games, etc. One of these events is Overwatch Anniversary.
Overwatch Anniversary is an event that celebrates the release of the game. As the name suggests it is a yearly event and the first Anniversary event was in 2017. It starts on the Tuesday of the 3rd week of every May and runs for a period of 3 weeks.
Overwatch had multiple Anniversary events in the past years. Starting in 2017, the first Anniversary event featured multiple cosmetic items including Dance Emotes. Like every year, this year we might be getting more dance emotes added as well as the first look at a Baptiste Legendary skin and more to come.
