Jump to: navigation, search

There were originally 12 maps at the launch of the game for Standard Play (three for Assault, Escort, Hybrid, and Control). Since then, 9 additional maps have been added. New maps are released roughly every 4 months and are in-between hero releases. The September map is revealed during gamescom.

Arcade maps are released arbitrarily, but they often come with an event.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • New maps rotate between the 4 game modes, but the order is not the same for each set.
  • Maps are usually released in January, May, and September; however, there has been two exceptions so far: Horizon Lunar Colony (June) and Paris (February). Interestingly, they're both Assault maps.
  • The January map used to be revealed during BlizzCon; however, as of 2018, Blizzard has stopped doing this. Their reasoning is that they felt map announcements lose their impact if they are announced too early.[1]
  • Rialto and Havana were revealed through Overwatch Archives, and were both playable for the event before they were released for standard gameplay.
