When is the Overwatch 2 Winter Wonderland event for 2024?

When the year draws to a close and you’re feeling stuffed to the gills with cookies, it means that Winter Wonderland is about to arrive in Overwatch 2. That’s right, it will be the final event for 2024 in Blizzard’s team shooter. If you’ve got visions of sugar plums dancing in your head and you want to get into the holiday spirit early, mark your calendars now. Most likely, Overwatch 2 Winter Wonderland will run  from December 17 through January 7.

Last year, Blizzard trialed a new way to unlock rewards during the Winter Wonderland with a concept of tickets and a special Event Pass. I didn’t have any strong feelings about the approach, but that might have been because I only had eyes for Baptiste in formalwear and I could nab it without paying extra. But considering this event structure hasn’t resurfaced since (at least as of this writing), I’m not counting on seeing it again. I do, however, like the idea of giving the heroes snazzed up duds during this event. Last year’s rewards were very New Years Eve chic, and who doesn’t want to look their best? (Even if they’re playing their worst.)

As usual, there will be event challenges based on playing normal and/or limited time Arcade modes during the Winter Wonderland. We’ll be treated to the usual roster of Mei modes, so prepare yourself to hear a lot of “Sorry…sorry…” and “A-MEI-zing!” voice lines.

We’ll keep you updated once Blizzard shares more information about the event. But for now, start dreaming of snowball fights…
