The Overwatch Anniversary event will be followed by a new hero launch
Currently, players can enjoy a new stack of hero skins to collect, as well as a total of 100 cosmetics to find in the event loot boxes.
The Overwatch Anniversary celebrations end on June 12 and it appears that they could be followed by another big game update.
Speaking via the PlayOverwatch Twitch channel's Anniversary Community Stream, game director Jeff Kaplan confirmed that a new hero was in the works.
He didn’t mention how far along the new character was in development, only commenting: “There's some really cool hero news just on the horizon, so hopefully people will be excited by that.”
Kaplan also revealed that Blizzard are looking to supply new content to the game on a monthly basis.

This likely means following the end of Overwatch Season 4 and during Season 5.
"Right now we are literally working on content all the way through the end of the year, and that's cool content drops every single month between now and the end of the year," Kaplan added.
“We work in what we call branches, different versions of the game that come out at different times.”

The official statement from Blizzard: "We are indeed adding a countdown to the current competitive season's end in an upcoming patch.
"In the meantime, I can let you know that Season 4 will end on May 29 at 0:00 UTC. We decided to have a shorter amount of "offseason" time without competitive play as compared to previous seasons.
"As a reminder, the time of May 29 0:00 UTC can correspond to different time and date depending on where you live in the world. As an example, that date and time is May 28 5:00pm Pacific Daylight Time or May 28 8:00pm Eastern Daylight Time."
For UK fans, this means Season 4 will finish at 1am on May 30.
