If you're wondering when Season 4 of Overwatch will start, then we've been given our strongest indication of a launch date via a post by game director Jeff Kaplan on the game's official forums.
Quite simply, the team intends to follow the same pattern as it has for previous Seasons: finish the previous Season up one week before the start of the next, with a new Season kicking off at the start of a calendar month.
Projecting that into the future - and considering Blizzard likes to make major changes to all of its games via a Tuesday patch - then it stands to reason that Season 4 of Overwatch will begin on Tuesday 28th February.
