It’s no secret that Valve likes to take its time when it comes to creating brand new content for its games, but it seems like the Dota 2 development team wants to shake off “Valve time.”
Valve has expressed its intentions to expedite the hero development process and further improve the Dota 2 user experience, according to Team Secret’s Director of Operations, Matthew “Cyborgmatt” Bailey. Cyborgmatt says these statements were made by Valve in the same meeting as the unveiling of next year’s calendar of Major and Minor tournaments.
With regards to new hero development, Valve noted that the current metagame is in a good place and is “in great shape,” but that making new heroes was an area that hasn’t “gone as quickly” as it would like.
No doubt Valve will provide more details about these new announcements soon, most likely after The International 7 concludes on Aug. 12.
