The Overwatch Archives event may be over but it looks like the upcoming Anniversary event is going to start this month.

The event, which celebrates the game's release, will apparently arrive May 22 and like previous year will bring a swarm of rare items. Loot box shennanigans not included, I've gotten a lot of playtime out of it. The map is one that's only for Deathmatch games and should be available when the next anniversary event begins on May 22, a date that was confirmed in the tweet below.

Starting on May 22, 2018, players will be able to obtain all previously released Brawl modes and seasonal cosmetic items, meaning if you wanted to earn the Halloween or Christmas versions of characters, you'll once again be able to do so.

Huge discovery about Lost asteroid stuns scientists
An asteroid of the size of a long football field reportedly would pass right by the Earth at a seemingly closer distance. Its size ranges from 197 to 427 feet (60-130 meters), making it possible to pass the closest ever on May 15.

It has been a couple of years since Overwatch was launched, and in the first year we saw Blizzard celebrate the game's first anniversary with a special in-game event. The new one is a belter: a Junkrat pirate skin complete with sabres, an eye patch, and a prosthetic leg made up of a skull with glaring green eyes on top of a metal hook.

If you log into Overwatch during the anniversary event, you'll get a free Legendary Anniversary Loot Box. This year, deathmatch will also feature a competitive variant with placement matches and skill rating. So if you haven't played Overwatch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, or PC yet, that'll be your chance. Blizzard promises over 50 new cosmetic items, including eight legendary and three epic skins, not to mention dance emotes.
