According to the teaser, it looks like Storm Rising is just around the corner, as it is set to take place from April 16th until May 6th. The event will ask players to “Chase the Truth,” as they will be tasked with tracking down Doomfist’s accountant in order to get to the gauntlet-wielding character.
It’s also worth noting that this is likely where the recently teased Havana map will come into play. After all, Blizzard has been hinting at heading to Cuba since the arrival of Baptiste, and the way things are shaping up, there’s a good chance we will be getting a new map next week with the launch of Storm Rising.
