Overwatch Anniversary event artwork featuring all of the heroes

[Update]: The Overwatch Anniversary patch has now arrived to the live servers. You can check out all of the changes and cosmetics by heading over here. Have fun!

Overwatch will soon be celebrating its very first birthday, and in order to get everyone in on the festivities Blizzard will be holding a massive Anniversary event featuring a new game mode, new skins, sprays, and a whole bunch more. The Anniversary Update will arrive on May 23rd and will last about three weeks, most likely until June 12th if previous events are any indicator.

While there is no official confirmation about the contents of this update, Blizzard has previously stated that Hanzo, Zarya, and Symmetra will be getting new legendary skins in the near future, so here's to hoping the overlooked trio will be getting some shiny new cosmetics to play around with. Furthermore, there is a strong chance some of the missing emotes (such as Sombra's laugh) will also be making an appearance given how they've been repeatedly mentioned in recent interviews. Whether any of this speculation is going to end up being correct or not, I'm afraid I don't know, but at least we won't have to wait long in order to find out as the event is only a few days away.

And finally, here's the recently posted video celebrating everything that happened to Overwatch since its release: the events, the cosplay, the voice actors, the tournaments, the memes, and the list goes on. Enjoy!
