Thanks to a cryptic tweet recently shared to the official Overwatch Twitter account, it looks like Blizzard is teasing the return of its Uprising game mode, or some sort of mission. In the tweet – which you can see below – players are treated to the Overwatch mission archives, specifically a file regarding the King’s Row Uprising. While the video doesn’t really give out much else information, it does reveal that the information will become declassified on April 10.
Initiating archive declassification…

While it’s still unknown as to what the tweet means, it’s highly likely that the company is teasing the 2018 version of its Uprising event. Debuting last April, the event brought in new skins, themed loot boxes, and the Insurrection game mode, which allowed players to relive some of the historic moments in the Overwatch lore. If this year is anything like last year, players will likely get 1-2 new game modes to try out along with some new skins to unlock for their heroes.
