"Blizzard's next big game!" - a game evolved from a SC/WC3 map, Blizzard All-Stars!

 

Heroes of the Storm is an upcoming multiplayer online battle arena video game developed by Blizzard Entertainment. The basis of the game is the combination of heroes from Blizzard's Warcraft, Diablo, and StarCraft franchises.

 

Amazing alpha game footage has been seen at Blizzcon 2013!

 

Stay tuned for more information!

I don't think so.  It sounds like the rumored "Blizzard DOTA" is finally developed into this to me.  Interesting that they are not going to use the DOTA name considering how much a bitch fit the threw about it when Valve called their game DOTA2.  Probably because they loss that argument.

Valve owns the rights to the name "Dota" as part of a settlement with Blizzard.

Ahh...  Conflicts get all the headlines, while resolutions rarely get any attention.

Absolutely not. Titan is a whole new IP where as Heroes of the Storm is a creation from existing IPs.

sounds amazing with the different game styles, still think they should have left the name as Blizzard Dota.

Originally, it was supposed to be a special map for StarCraft 2. I guess they decided to go the standalone route. It looks interesting. I've added some videos to the post.

It's still under development I believe, but it looked interesting, so I thought I'd share.
