Responding to a question posed on Twitter, Valve said it’s testing “some social things” and “complete new matchmaking system” for its upcoming sequel to DotA, the former Warcraft 3 custom map.

The Tweet in full read:

“We are internally testing some social things and dota2 will test a complete new match making system we might see.”

Recent rumours and reports suggest an autumn release for Defense of the Ancients 2, as well as a likely showing at gamescom next month.
