Overwatch 2's next season, Rise of Darkness, will kick off October 10, and it's bringing with it what looks to be a crossover with Blizzard's own Diablo IV just in time for Halloween.

A short teaser shows what appears to be a Moira skin tailored after Diablo IV's big-bad, Lilith, as well as a spooky new version of the Blizzard World map and an updated version of Overwatch's Halloween PvE event game mode, Junkenstein's Revenge. The mode looks to take place inside the Tristram Cathedral portion of the Blizzard theme park-inspired map and features Diablo-like Town Portals players will need to contend with.

Blizzard confirmed over the weekend as part of the Overwatch League 2023 grand finals that a new map, Samoa, will debut with Season 7. It's not yet been revealed what else fans can expect to see added in Overwatch 2 Season 7, but leaks suggest a new Mythic skin for Hanzo and new Halloween skins for Widowmaker and Echo are also in the cards.

A Lilith skin in Overwatch 2 isn't the first time Blizzard's dark fantasy franchise has crossed over with its FPS. A number of other Diablo skins have been added over the years, including Demon Hunter Sombra, Butcher Roadhog, and Barbarian Zarya. Other Blizzard franchises are also represented in Overwatch 2 in the form of World of Warcraft-themed skins for Doomfist and Torbjorn, as well as a StarCraft skin for Widowmaker.

Overwatch 2 isn't even the only Activision Blizzard-made FPS to get a Diablo crossover. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II is rumored to be receiving a Diablo IV crossover of its own later this month, when it will introduce Lilith and the fallen angel Inarius as playable Operators, complete with their own unique finishing moves.

Blizzard will be revealing Overwatch 2's new tank hero as part of BlizzCon 2023, which will mark the convention's return as an in-person event for the first time since 2019. Blizzard veteran Chris Metzen, who recently returned to the company full-time as an executive creative director, will reveal what's next for World of Warcraft at the show. Additional details will also be shared about the future of Diablo IV, which will soon be kicking off its second season, titled Season of Blood.
