Blizzard is moving away from the developers from Heroes of the Storm and is canceling various official eSport events dedicated to MOBA. The announcement was made today in a post on the official blog from the new president of Blizzard J. Allen Brack and from the head of development Ray Gresko.
We made the difficult decision to move some developers from Heroes of the Storm to other teams, and we are thrilled to see the passion, knowledge and experience that will lead to these projects. Despite the change we will continue to actively support the game with new heroes, themed events and other content that our community loves, even if the cadence will change.
Although it has never been as popular as it is league of legends e Dota 2, HotS still got a modest fan base. Blizzard says the decision was made to support the other games and unannounced projects on which the company is working.
The post goes on to state that Heroes Global Championship e Heroes of the Dorm, two eSport events, will not be back in the 2019.
