Havana is an Escort map in Overwatch. It will be available for Competitive Play on May 21st, 2019.

Background

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]

Locations

Trivia

  • 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 of 2018. Development for Overwatch Storm Rising started 1 month after, in September of 2018.[4]
