Cairo is a city in Egypt. It is located near the ancient ruins of the Giza Plateau and the Temple of Anubis.[1]

Seven years before the present day, Director Petras ordered a full investigation of the murder of an Overwatch official in Cairo.[2]

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Cairo was listed as a payload map in a pre-release version of Overwatch. The artwork for the map was later used for the Temple of Anubis.[3]
  • A fan-made Cairo map was created by Joshua Llorente using Unreal Engine 4. The map caught the attention of Jeff Kaplan, who wrote "amzing work! we'll be in touch."[4]
