Blizzard 'actively working' on Blizzard All-Stars
ByDate: 01-24-2013 Views:
Blizzard has been silent on Blizzard All-Stars, its MOBA first revealed at BlizzCon 2010, for months now. Even the official website only offers the tease "coming soonish." Until recently StarCraft II's production director Chris Sigaty stated that the studio hasn't forgotten about Blizzard All-Stars, but is focusing on its free-to-play business model.
"We're actively working on it," Sigaty said. "That I can confirm. A lot of the stuff that's remaining right now that we need to focus on are the systems necessary to pull off a game with a different business model than StarCraft II."
Blizzard All-Stars was one of four internally-developed mods for StarCraft 2 and intended for release on or near expansion Heart of the Swarm. Now, it seems certain to be a standalone game. That means players will not have to have StarCraft 2 to play Blizzard All-Stars. Sigaty refused to go into detail, but rumour is Blizzard will re-reveal Blizzard All-Stars at BlizzCon later this year.
