Blizzard's smash hit multiplayer shooter Overwatch has made a habit of celebrating seasonal holidays with big themed in-game events, and now it appears that the studio have a new event up its sleeve for the upcoming 2017 Lunar New Year.

Just recently, Blizzard announced on Twitter that a special "Year of the Rooster" event will be coming on January 24 to coincide with the Lunar New Year. Few details about the event have been revealed, but based on past Overwatch events and the teaser images released of Mei and D.Va wearing special Year of the Rooster costumes, fans can certainly expect a heap of new skins and new game modes.
