Blizzard World and the new loot box items release early this year. Between you and me, I am hoping before the end of the month. But "stuff" can happen.

Hey Jeff! I know you can't really give away everything, but is it possible you could disclose something about why BlizzWorld isn't ready to go? I think it would really help out the confusion people have with how the map and skins have been progressing.


The map is very close. We had to fix a few things like the fact that Torb's turret would get destroyed if you built it on the "Flight to Duskwood" ride. There is also a lot of invisible collision that goes into all maps that prevents players from getting into weird or stuck places and also just makes things like Lucio wall ride or Genji/Hanzo wall climb work better. We also had to do a ton of optimization on Blizz World -- it's the map that has the most stuff in it by far. Getting it to run fast is super important to us.

When are they releasing? And will stored up loot boxes have chances of unlocking the new skins? Also that Doomfist skin is beautiful, I wants its!

Loot boxes roll their items the moment you acquire them -- meaning if you hold on to loot boxes, they will not have new items or any other changes to that system.

Glad you like the Doomfist skin. The artists will be happy.


Are there any skins we haven't seen yet :).

<span class="truncated">...</span>Hey Jeff

I really hope that "stuff" won't happen

I need Butcher Hog


I hate when "stuff" happens too... you get used to it working on live games though... a lot of "stuff" happens all the time...
Got it...

Can you please thank the artists who made Butcher Hog and Ecopoint Mei for me?

The skins are awesome

If Reaper can teleport to unintended locations, I'm going to (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻

In all seriousness, you kinda explain it here, but what has made it stay on the PTR so long? Was it that early in development when it got onto the PTR?

Why aren't the Symmetra Dragon voice lines in the game yet? When will that happen?

Yes.

The character who is receiving the skin is from Overwatch. The skin will be from another Blizzard franchise.
