Update: Gabe Newell talked about release time and beta schedule

Valve's boss Gabe Newell said yesterday in the talk with Eurogamer that Dota 2 won't be released until 2012 as he said "We'll just go into progressively wider and wider distribution. I don't think it'll be shipped until next year."

However, Gabe Newell revealed that the invitation beta will start after the Gamescom tournament ends, followed by a public beta. Dota 2 will be released through Steam, but the game's business model is still to be decided.

Speaking of the development of Dota 2, Newell said that "IceFrog has a bunch of testers he's worked with as long as he's been doing development. The first thing we've been working with is addressing their concerns. We've been through four or five different versions of the user interface, getting it to the point where we've addressed the feedback we've got from those guys."
