Valve is rumoured to be announcing a new game later today and, while Valve hasn't released any official hints, it is heavily speculated to be a new Defence of the Ancients game.
The rumours mainly come from a series of trademarks Valve filed to protect the DOTA and Defence of the Ancients names
, which appeared after Defence of the Ancients Allstars developer, Icefrog, was hired by Valve and put in charge of a new project
More recently, voice actor Jon St. John, best known for providing the voice of Serious Sam tweeted that he was recording voice work with Valve for a new DOTA game - though the tweet has since been removed.
Valve's official line is that it will be announcing a new title later today via Game Informer
, though it won't disclose exactly what it is. Game Informer hasn't hidden the fact that it was visiting Icefrog just last week though.
Defence of the Ancients is a small tactics, avatar-based strategy which grew a new genre out a Warcraft 3 mod.
We'll bring you more details when we receive them, but for now all there is is a lot of very convincing rumours.
