Blizzard’s MOBA Isn’t Called All-Stars Anymore
Blizzard All-Stars, which was already a rename from Blizzard Dota, has now had it’s own name changed as the studio behind Diablo, StarCraft and Warcraft ramp up the hype for their massive three franchise MOBA crossover. In preparation for the upcoming BlizzCon expo, Blizzard has announced the new name for their free-to-play online title.
And it’s another HotS acronym.

Blizzard All-Stars has been renamed to Heroes of the Storm, revealed in a rather cute teaser trailer released by the studio yesterday. Reports are suggesting that developers from the recently restarted Project Titan have been reassigned to Heroes of the Storm, indicating that Blizzard are interested in getting this out the door sooner rather than later.
Considering Heroes of the Storm will combine the studio’s three biggest franchises, the game is probably been given the highest priority and should have a top-notch team working on it. Blizzard have stated that the game will be on show for the first time at BlizzCon, so we’ll have to wait until then to see just how different it is from that footage of All-Stars we got a glimpse of all those months ago.
Will it hold a candle to the likes of Dota 2 and League of Legends? Considering everyone and their mother is releasing a MOBA nowadays, Blizzard will seriously have to do something special.
But it’s Blizzard, so there’s hope right?
