Jeff Kaplan, Overwatch’s Game Director, confirmed via the Overwatch forums today that three new maps are in Overwatch’s future. Additionally he said that three maps, and other “experiments” are in progress. His post:
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!

As we’ve commented many times, Overwatch’s continued popularity speaks for itself and it shows no sign of slowing down. The confirmation from Jeff that 3 new maps are on the way with presumably new heroes as well, speaks to Blizzard’s excellent, on-going support of the title.
