Valve just announced that they will in fact be making a sequel to the Warcraft III map, Defense of the Ancients (DotA). There have been rumors for months, but now it's finally been confirmed, check out the announcement of DotA 2 here: http://gameinformer.com/b/features/archive/2010/10/13/dota-2-announced-details.aspx

Never heard of it, and doesn't really strike any interest...... perhaps later on it will.

Sorry. Didn't read the article prior to my comment, so I assumed that you had made a posting error.

Valve really does know where the money is then. But I'll wait with getting excited until I see how it looks.

It was extremely popular in the Warcraft III community. The only day you couldn't find someone playing DotA would be the days the servers were down for maintenance. There have been other attempts to replicate it, such as Heroes of Newerth and League of Legends. Their success depends on who you're asking.

thats what it sounds like, they are picking it up and will either adapt a engine or make a new engine for it and make it an actual game.

How will this DOTA 2 be any different from Heroes of Newerth then... Unless they introduce some new feature.

Because it would still be the same heroes, just with different textures and possibly engine. I play heroes of newerth and honestly, the other map layout doesn't get played AT ALL, like 99.9999% play the usualy 3 laned dota map. So difference of map won't make Dota 2 any better.

It will be like HoN and DotA2 competing on totally equal grounds, better graphics, new skins to similar heroes, same 3 laned map, same items/recipe items (well maybe the 2 games might have new unique items or heroes) but other than that, its the same damn game.
