Overwatch's Halloween Terror Event Returns With New Skins
It is once again Halloween season, and that means the annual return of the Halloween Terror event in Blizzard Entertainment's Overwatch. As with prior events, cosmetics from previous years will be available in addition to new skins, sprays, and icons associated with Weekly Challenge rewards and otherwise. The event is available now, complete with Junkenstein's Revenge missions, and will conclude on November 2nd.

It is worth noting here the California lawsuit against Activision Blizzard over sexual harassment and discrimination against women as the overall company continues to deal with the very public fallout from it. The lawsuit itself continues to escalate with no end in sight.
As noted above, Overwatch's Halloween Terror event is now live on PC, Xbox, PlayStation, and Nintendo Switch and it runs through November 2nd. Overwatch itself is currently available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. It is also playable via backwards compatibility on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S. Overwatch 2 is in development, though no specific release date has been announced as of yet.
