Valve announced that after talking with the creators of the original Dota mod Auto Chess decided to create my version of the game. Company and a Chinese Studio Drodo came to the decision that each needs to work on their own project.
However, Valve has helped in the support of the Chinese version Dota Auto Chess for mobile devices. The company helped to transfer information about accounts with an original mod.
In February, we met with the team Drodo from China to talk about the future of Dota Auto Chess and see if they want to cooperate with us directly. We had great talks, but all came to the conclusion that Valve and Drodo can’t work together for various reasons.
In the end, we agreed that each of us has created a soy version of the game. However, the support of each other we will provide in full.
May 8, Valve has trademarked DOTA Underlords, which, most likely, is the name of their version of Dota Auto Chess. Soon the company will present new details of his game.
