Blizzard has announced that it will be moving manpower away from its Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) title, Heroes of the Storm. The announcement goes on to say that the developers shifted from Heroes of the Storm will be working on other live games and unannounced projects.
Following this, the company also announced that the game’s tourneys, Heroes Global Championship and Heroes of the Dorm, will not be returning in 2019.
While Heroes of the Storm was never explosively popular like the two dominant MOBA titles League of Legends and Dota 2, it still has a passionate following of fans. Pro players of Heroes of the Storm are also clearly unhappy about the sudden cancellation of Heroes Global Championship.
That said, the game will remain as a live service, with updates and new content coming in. This includes new heroes and themed events, according to Blizzard’s statement. They just won’t come as frequently as they did before.
As for the announced projects, perhaps the mobile Warcraft title we heard of last month is among them.
