Today during the Overwatch "What's Next" panel at BlizzCon, Blizzard announced that from now on, it will add more event-style skins to regular, non-event loot boxes.
For the past year, the majority of new skins have only been available during timed events, after which they went back into a vault inside Jeff Kaplan's terror palace. During the panel, Blizzard said that won't always be the case any more and revealed an upcoming set of Blizzard-themed skins that will enter the regular loot box pool.
Here's a video of them in action:
