Due to the ongoing lawsuit that game company Activision Blizzard is facing, it seems a new Overwatch deatmatch map called Malavento got pulled.

Activision Blizzard is current facing a lawsuit that the State of California has recently filed and that has seemed to stop a lot of activities within the studio. The allegations are quite serious and from the reports, it seems thousands of employees are affected. One of those are the guys behind the popular online multiplayer shooter.

According to the media outlet Dexerto, their report (which got removed for some reason now archived) revealed that Malavento is a new deathmatch map and was supposed to be added yesterday with the PTR update. It is set in Italy where a Talon base is discovered.

The map showcases the Italian mountainside with beautiful scenery, Italian architecture, and lush surroundings.

Now, the Malavento map is nowhere to be found within Overwatch, which has possibly been pulled by the developers. It seems it will be delayed now and no details on the release date was revealed.

Overwatch is now available on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
