Speaking during the press reveal of Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm, lead producer Chris Sigaty has revealed that Blizzard’s DotA mod should be ready for release around the same time as Heart of the Swarm – sometime in 2012.
“We basically put it back up in the shop and did some massive overhauls to some things, which I’m not going to go into specific detail about,” Sigaty told Joystiq at a press event last week. “But yeah, we are working on Blizzard Dota, and we do intend to launch it at or around the time of Heart of the Swarm, but the official details will be online later.”
Blizzard DotA was one of four mods unveiled at last years Blizzcon, and is the only one not to have been released.
When asked whether the mod would require users to own Heart of the Swarm, Sigaty said; “We’re not even talking about the business level decision of it at this point.”
