Breaking News: Valve and IceFrog’s mysterious DotA related project finally unveiled?

News & Rumors Other

For months, we’ve been waiting to see just what that project IceFrog, the creator of the popular Defense of the Ancients mod for Warcraft III, are working on with Valve.

Alien Swarm came and went, but this mysterious unannounced project remains. Teased as “great news for DotA fans”, we still have no idea just what the hell this is.

Now, we may finally have a clue as to what it may be.

Breaking News: Valve and IceFrog’s mysterious DotA related project finally unveiled?

Sometime last Saturday, Jon St John, known for being the voice of Duke Nukem, tweeted this:

“Had a great time in Seattle last week recording for DotA. The guys at ValveSoftware are awesome!”

He then… removed that Tweet!

Dun, dun, dun!

So Valve’s new project will be some sort of DotA reboot or remake. Personally, I was hoping for something more scifi or modern. Presumably, it will be standalone through Steam. Will it be on Source? Will it ever come out? Who knows.

If this comes out before EP3, I will hang myself, by the way.


  1. This just broke my god damn heart.
    DotA in WC3 was okay – But but but but… It’s just wrong.

  2. I never thought I’d see the day when Valve announces a fantasy RPG strategy game when they should announce their next HL installment.

  3. I better not be Half Life: Dota or something retarded like that.

  4. Woah… That sounds awesome!
