Which characters are getting skins for Halloween Terror 2019?

Yesterday, we looked at when (and if!) Blizzard is going to announce the Halloween Event for 2019.

The start date for Halloween Terror has yet to be revealed, but that doesn't mean Blizzard isn't going to hold one this year. It's likely it'll just start a little later thanks to the timing of the Overwatch Grand Finals and where BlizzCon falls this year.

Ahead of the event going live, players are figuratively knocking down the Blizzard HQ doors to find out which characters are going to get skins for the event this year.

Well, over on Reddit, user ProfessorDano has made a handy breakdown of which characters have received which skins from the Halloween Terror event in past years, and what that means about the probability of characters getting a new skin for this event.

Overwatch Halloween Event 2019 Skins – New skins for 2019

As per ProfessorDano, there have been 28 total skins so far, over three years (averaging at just under 10 per year). That results in 10 total characters currently that do not have a Halloween skin.

Of those characters, five are from the original cast – D.Va, Genji, Lucio, Tracer, and Winston have gone without Halloween skins so far. You'd assume that Blizzard would want to support these characters to make sure they're not forgotten as the roster expands with new additions.

ProfessorDano goes on to break it down by class: "There are a total of 28 Halloween skins (4 tank skins, 19 damage skins, 5 support skins)" they write.

"Blizzard will aim to even up the distribution this year by giving skins to 3 tanks, 3 supports, and 1 damage."

It's an interesting theory, but the pattern has been established so far and we'd be unsurprised to see this happen if (…when) the event goes live.

So who's going to get skins?

ProgessorDano suggests:
•"The 3 tanks will be Orisa, D.Va, and Winston."
• "The 3 supports will be Baptiste, Lucio, and Brigitte."
• "The 1 damage will be Tracer. "

Will this prediction check out – we'll see. Hopefully very soon.
