With today’s tease of the Overwatch Anniversary Remix 1 event, we wanted to talk about what you can expect from Remix events, and what this means for popular in-game events like Archives, Summer Games, and Anniversary in the lead-up to Overwatch 2.
Like standard Anniversary events, Remix events will throw open the vault doors, allowing you to unlock every skin normally available during these events, plus all new “remixed” Legendary skins. These offer a spin on our ‘greatest hits’ with new looks for some of the most popular skins ever released, and you can look forward to six of them per Remix event.
For each Anniversary remix, three popular mini-event skins will make a limited time return and can obtained by completing their specific challenges. Each challenge will only last a week, so If you missed your chance the first time around, now’s the best chance to earn these limited-edition event skins.
Just like standard Anniversary events, we’ll be enabling brawls on a rotating schedule over the next three weeks. Fan favorites like Archives Missions, Lucio Ball, and Mei’s Snowball Challenge will all be making a return, so be sure to jump in and join in on the festivities.
This does mean that events like Archives, standard Anniversary, and Summer Games will not make a return this year. Instead, the Anniversary Remix events will be introducing a new set of variants in place of the normal event schedule, all of which will transfer to Overwatch 2 along with all previously earned skins, sprays, and player icons.
This three-part anniversary event enables our team to allocate more time and attention to the upcoming PVP beta, while simultaneously providing the community with the chance to earn unique variants of your favorite Legendary skins.
We’ll be sharing more information in the months ahead about future Anniversary Remix events, as well as our continuing commitment to regular updates about the development of Overwatch 2.
