As every year, Blizzard celebrates the anniversary of Overwatch with an event where players can get items for a limited time. Although it had leaked, the start date was not known until now. Thus, the company itself has officially announced that Overwatch 2020 anniversary event will start on May 19 and end on June 9.

Although Blizzard has not yet detailed the different characteristics of the event, we can get an idea of what it will be taking into account the previous years. In addition, at the time some details of it were leaked on the Twitter account itself. For this reason we know that there will be legendary skins for various characters. Although there is no image we do know the name of the same: Masquerade Reaper, Little Red Ashe and Dragoon Mercy.
Of three skins mentioned, Blizzard has shown the of Little Red Ashe in the account of Overwatch On twitter. It is a Little Red Riding Hood skin in which, obviously, Ashe is the girl and B.O.B. plays a wolf disguised as a granny. On the other hand, the weekly rewards of the challenge are also known to us. Thus, by winning nine games in the same week we will unlock the Masked Man McCree, Carbon Fiber Sigma and Fleur de Lis Widowmaker skin.
About the game modes there is nothing about it, but it is logical to think that there will be exclusive modes of the event as it happened in previous years. In any case, we only have to wait 4 days for the Overwatch 2020 Anniversary to begin.
