Background[edit | edit source]

Havana (Spanish: La Habana) is the capital city of Cuba. It is home to the Don Rumbotico distillery and the Havana Sea Fort, both locations considered iconic of the local area. Alicia Díaz, a local, feared that Havana is changing and losing elements of its cultural legacy.[1] A travel poster advertising tourism to Havana is located inside the Adawe International Terminal in Numbani.[2]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Numbani map originally showed a poster featuring Temple of Anubis. On March 2, 2019, it was discovered that the map was changed on PTR to replace the Temple of Anubis poster with a new Havana poster.[3]
  • Development for Havana began in August 2018. Development for Overwatch Storm Rising started the month after.[4]
  • The map contains many references to Shakespeare's works.
    • Taller de Sebastián and Viola y Orsino are named for three main characters of Twelfth Night: Sebastian, Viola, and Orsino. The computer in the operations room of Don Rumbotico also displays text about Viola and Olivia. Together, these four make up the two central couples of the play.
    • The logo of Viola y Orsino, in reference to the real-world cigar brand Romeo y Julieta, shows the balcony scene of Romeo and Juliet.
    • La Cocina de Miranda is named after a main character of The Tempest. A poster also notes that a film adaptation of The Tempest is playing at the Gran Teatro.
