Announced seemingly years ago now, Blizzard All-Stars is the MOBA that never appeared, the DotA-style game combining heroes from all of Blizzard’s universes. Originally intended as a StarCraft II map, comments from StarCraft II production director Chris Sigaty indicate Blizzard is now looking at a stand-alone, F2P release.
“StarCraft 2 is a box. We intend to do something different with the business model in Blizzard All-Stars,” Sigaty said to Eurogamer. “Something more closely resembling the other types of games in that genre, the MOBA-style games that are out there today, and being able to sell smaller amounts of things to players, the things they want.”
“We’ll go into more details about that in the future,” he said, “but I suspect you will not have to have StarCraft 2 to play. We’re definitely emphasizing it as its own product in the future.”
