Heroes of the Storm is a multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) game developed Blizzard Entertainment. It features characters from all of the company's acclaimed franchises like Diablo, Overwatch, and more. While the title started off as a somewhat lackluster experience, it has become quite addictive in recent months. The continued support and the odd mashups are the reason behind its relative success.
Unfortunately, it seems like Heroes of the Storm is one game that Blizzard doesn't feel needs so much attention. In a post on the game's website, Blizzard President J. Allen Brack and Vice President Ray Gresko said that developers were being shifted to other projects. You can read an excerpt from the statement below.
It's unclear what this means for the future of Heroes of the Storm. We should probably expect less content. A lot of gamers who love the title won't be happy, that's for sure. Hopefully the game won't be abandoned in the future because usually scaling back development is the first sign. Heroes of the Storm isn't an ultra-popular game for the company so it's not out of the realm of possibility.
