In late September, news of a trademark filing for a Blizzard Entertainment property called ‘Heroes of the Storm’ was unearthed, and the studio has recently announced that the name indeed alludes to a game in development.
Widely believed to be the official name for Blizzard’s upcoming MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena), the company confirmed that what we previously knew as ‘Blizzard All-Stars’ is now called Heroes of the Storm. Writing simply on the official YouTube channel, Blizzard said:
“Yep, we’ve changed it again.
“Set aside whatever you think you knew about Blizzard All-Stars, and get ready for what’s brewing at this year’s BlizzCon.”
Here’s the cute animated trailer announcing the name change:
