Today the developer behind the popular Warcraft 3 mod Defense of the Ancients: Allstars, known only as ‘IceFrog,’ announced that he is going to be leading a team of developers at Valve.
According to IceFrog, this is “great news for DotA fans.” He stated, “I finally have all the resources needed to do some very exciting stuff that you guys will love,” notes IceFrog. “As I’ve said many times in the past and especially after today’s developments, I am very excited about DotA’s future!”
IceFrog went on to say, “My goal and top priority in the future is to solve the surrounding issues that affect the DotA experience in order to allow it to reach new heights.”
Does this imply that Valve will be producing a DotA clone like Riot Games’ League of Legends or S2 Games’ Heroes of Newerth? As more details arrive, you can be sure I’ll post them here on Gamer Limit.
