Blizzard DOTA to be a “larger” project than other mods, release “further out”

We played Blizzard DOTA. It’s hilarious and fun and delightful. We rarely use the word delightful. This is a Big Deal.

So we were both saddened and excited when Blizzard talked about the StarCraft II spin-off during its StarCraft II and Battle.net press conference earlier today.

According to production director Chris Sagaty, Blizzard DOTA is simply a “larger” undertaking than the other three Blizzard mods. As a result, it’s release date will be “further out” than its less ambitious counterparts, which will be rolled out over the next “few months.”

In addition, depending on how players react, Blizzard’s looking at supporting Blizzard DOTA after its release with tweaks, new content, and the like.

In the words of one particularly excited VG247 writer when the news broke: “Woohoo!” In the thoughts of everyone around him: “I am so glad I don’t know that guy.”

We’re at BlizzCon all weekend, so keep checking back for more.

    Who cares? Valve’s DOTA will be better.

    @1: Because you’ve totally played both games — or hell, seen anything from either — and are completely qualified to make that judgment right now. Why do people even say things like this? What’s the point in complaining about the fact that there are now two potentially fantastic games coming to market, one of which — the one you’re complaining about — is fucking FREE. Christ, people.

    Because Valve’s DOTA is being developed by the author of DOTA?

    6: Try to get your fact right before you open that mouth, Valve stole the hole thing.

    Valve didn’t steal anything. If dumbasses can’t be bothered to use the correct channels to protect their creations that’s their own fault.
