Heroes of the Storm Isn’t a WoW Expansion, It’s…Blizzard All-Stars
Back in September, Blizzard filed a trademark for Heroes of the Storm, a supposed bit of “Computer game software, computer game discs, downloadable computer game software…,” blah blah.
So what is it? Is it a new WoW expansion, as some had postulated? No, no. Get out of here. It’s just the new name for Blizzard All-Stars (as our Mike Sharkey had predicted), previously known as Blizzard DOTA–basically, it’s a MOBA featuring various Blizzard heroes. That’s about all we know, as no other information accompanied the announcement, and we’ve been unable to dig up anything else. So basically, what I’m saying is, take whatever you currently know, or knew, about Blizzard All-Stars, and just move that knowledge into a new file in your brain, and title in Heroes of the Storm. That’s the news.
It has a trailer, but it’s an irritating, childish cartoon so bereft of information I can’t in good faith embed it here. You can check it out if you’d like here, but you’ve been warned.
