Also, Lúcioball has simple stadiums as its own unique maps.

Development[edit | edit source]

Part of the map design process is to go over all the pre-existing maps, and ascertain which areas of the world have yet to receive representation. Some assets are shared between maps.[1] It takes two months on average to create a map, though is usually playable within the first two. After that, iteration is constantly carried out before it ships.[2] Payload maps take the longest to design due to the amount of art required, while arena maps can be completed the fastest.[3]
