      Jeff Kaplan said in his last video that they haven't been putting too much effort into the events lately because they've been working on a lot of other game systems and quality of life stuff. So I don't expect much from this aside from skins - Junkenstein is fun though. I still wish they would have a more regular rotation of co-op maps in the Arcade. It's not super deep but it's a fun distraction.
