This isn't an official reveal, but the PS Store was recently updated with the following text:

Akuma, Kolin and Ed are available now and will be followed by the 3 additional characters throughout the year. Each Season 2 character comes with a Premium Battle costume with colors 3-10 unlocked. Additionally, Street Fighter® V Season 2 Character Pass holders will receive an exclusive PS4 theme and default costume colors 3-10 for all Season 2 Character Pass characters!

The next character was actually supposed to release today, but he ended up getting delayed. I guess no one told Sony!

Overwatch director says to expect three new maps this year

Here is what he said over on the official forums:

We currently have 3 maps in development, all past the initial playtesting phase that are "standard" maps (QP/Comp). While something could always change, all 3 of those are looking likely for a release this year.

We also have 3 non-standard maps in development (these won't go in QP/Comp). 

We also have a few other experiments going on.

Hopefully this will satisfy some of what you're looking for. We want to play on these maps as badly as you guys do. We'll work as fast as we can!
