Overwatch dataminers has found two new sound files that could potentially be linked to the upcoming Overwatch Summer Games 2017 event. Blizzard Entertainment has yet to speak up on the next major event for their first person shooter title.
As seen on the Overwatch subreddit, the two new files were confirmed for the upcoming Summer Games 2017 brawl mode. One is supposed to be the track that plays when the new brawl mode only has 30 seconds on the clock. Meanwhile, the other sound file is believed to be the loading screen music before the brawl match starts.
So far, fans are speculating that the next Summer Games 2017 brawl mode may not be Lucioball. Last year, the first Overwatch Summer Games had this brawl mode where players are limited to playing football as teams full of Lucios. Many fans want that brawl mode back since Blizzard Entertainment introduced custom game modes. Players could revisit old brawl modes in the feature but Lucioball isn’t replayable beyond Summer Games 2016 at the moment.
While Blizzard Entertainment has yet to announce the next event, leaks hint that Overwatch will have a second run of the Olympics-themed event. Previously, dataminers found new national flag player icons in the test server files. Previously, national flag player icons were only given out in the first Overwatch Summer Games which somehow confirms the next event.
The Overwatch Summer Games 2017 will be the title’s first repeat event if it pushes through. A repeat event will give way of other previous events to make a regular appearance too. So far, Overwatch has celebrated Halloween (Halloween Terror), December holiday seasons (Winter Wonderland), and Chinese New Year (Year of the Rooster). Fans will have to wait until the developers tease of the next event to confirm the next major activity in the title.
