Dota 2 may be making its way to tablets

When VGA 2012 was in full force, Kotaku got a chance to interview the big boss at Valve: Gabe Newell. They asked him whether Valve is working on any new projects. Gabe said that they are testing out Defense of the Ancients 2 on tablets.

“We were working on getting Dota 2 running on some tablets,” he said to Kotaku.

“That ended up being kind of a disappointment. But the good news is that tablets are getting faster very quickly, so I think we’ll get the kind of performance we want and other game developers want in the near future.”

“It’s a good one for us to test with,” Gabe Newell said.

Valve are the developers behind the game but except for North America, Defense of the Ancients 2 will be published by Perfect World in China and Nexon Co. Ltd. in Japan. The game is confirmed for a PC and MAC release so it will be interesting to see whether it releases on tablets.

Defense of the Ancients 2 will follow Free 2 Play business model and  is a sequel to the original DOTA  mod for Warcraft 3. The game was announced more than two years back, in October 2010 and players can test access it.
