Last week Blizzard announced the return of the Overwatch Uprising event, but that event will now be called Overwatch Archives, representing effort to let players delve into the history of Overwatch with PvE storyevents. An event called Retribution will seemingly be the next entry in the Archives.

Game director Jeff Kaplan and lead engineer Tim Ford announced the news in thelatest Overwatch developer update, saying that the idea behind the event is to explore "all of these cool past moments in Overwatch history, and by going into the archives, we can relive those, and Uprising was just one of those events."

The original Uprising Event will be available to play during Archives, but there will also be, according to Kaplan, "more content and more parts of the event that we are going to talk about later".Kaplan ended the update with a tease for what seems to be the next instalment of Overwatch Archives, called Retribution.
