Overwatch 2's 2023 Lunar New Year event is coming up in just a few months, and we're already getting hyped about all of the new content that is sure to be included. The Lunar New Year event comes with new game modes, new rewards, new skins, and so much more. Players absolutely love the skins that are released with this event each year, being some of the game's most popular.
Let's go over all of the skins from past Overwatch Lunar New Year events (from Overwatch 1), and what we can expect going into 2023 with Overwatch 2.
And we should be getting two new skins. Keep an eye on the Overwatch 2 Item Shop.
The official Overwatch 2 account on Twitter isn't giving anything away, but with the Lunar New Year event scheduled to start next week - on 17 January - we wouldn't be surprised to see a few previews for new skins this coming weekend.
Keep those eyes peeled.
Overwatch 2 Lunar New Year Twitch Drops are now live.
Watch 2 hours to get a Moira Lion Roars Victory Pose, and 4 hours to get the Moira Mask Dancer skin.
The Twitch drops will run from 12 January to 26 January.
All New 2023 Overwatch 2 Lunar New Year Event Skins
Blizzard has yet to release information about all of the skins that will be included in the 2023 Lunar New Year event.
That said, we have seen a sneak peek at a couple of skins in the Season 2 trailer (above).
It's likely that we'll get more than one skin for the event, though, as most events include anywhere from 4-8 skins.

Can You Get Past Lunar New Year Event Skins In Overwatch 2?
Players who didn't get past Lunar New Year event skins might be wondering if they are able to get them in Overwatch 2 in 2023. Thankfully, yes, it does seem that Blizzard will be bringing back at least a few of the Lunar New Year event skins to Overwatch 2 during the Lunar New Year event.
For example, Tracer's Nezha skin states that it is "sometimes available in the Shop," suggesting that it will 'potentially' come back during the 2023 event.
