    I've heard and read of DotA 2 rumors recently, being a project of Valve (the one behind Counter Strike) and all..

    Is it really ongoing, or already abandoned? I have come up of the question because I didn't hear anymore updates from the sites...

    And if it is finished, will you try it? I would want to try it...coz I'm a DotA fan and gamer [​IMG]

    Uh, it's still going.. Icefrog is working together with Valve to make it, should be out this year some time.

    Definitely still in the works. While I don't think it'll be out by the end of this year, it is coming.
    Conceptually, it's easy since the game is already 'made'. Just porting it to a new engine will take a lot of time (obviously haha).

    I doubt they'll give this up though. Valve is not one to drop games. But Valve is also not one to drop secrets either [​IMG] and we all know this.

    Here's an OLD article on it: http://www.gameinformer.com/b/features/arc...ed-details.aspx
    Obviously a lot of work put into it already.

    will DoTA2 be free ?
    i am just curious to know , but seeing as it looks like it'll be an independent game than a game type , you probably will ...

    this IS valve we are talking about... so no

    you can tell valve is working on it because they delayed portal 2, worked on tf2 updates a little, and they don't really work on too many things at once (3 at max methinks) so that leaves the obvious DoTA 2 (episode 3 is a lie)
