Lunar New Year will take place in the game for the third time. In 2018, 50 cosmetic items appeared in the game, including skins for heroes, as well as a new map. What the event will give us this new year is still unknown. Earlier in January some hints were dropped about a new character to be arriving in the game. So this might be the best time to release him/her.
