Valve to show “strategy” game next month; bet on DOTA 2

Valve is likely to reveal DOTA 2 next month.

After skipping E3 in June, the developer’s expected to show off a “strategy” title at Gamescom in Cologne in August. That’s according to Valve’s page on the event’s website (via). “Strategy” is as far as the details go, though DOTA is the only property that would seem to apply here.

Valve first announced the game last Octobermuch to Blizzard’s confusion — but has been quiet about it since. It did say it would release on both PC and Mac sometime this year but, call me a pessimist, that’s probably not going to happen.

Gamescom takes place on August 17-21.
