A new Overwatch developer
reveals the return of the Summer Games to the multiplayer
shooter, saying things will kick off on August 8th, and the festivities will
include the return of Lúcioball. This will be a relief to
anyone who thought they'd have to wait for the next summer Olympics to earn new
skins and goodies. Jeff Kaplan brings us the news along with other future plans,
describing all they learned from running the first event last year, and
promising the new one will benefit from this experience. The description of the
