DOTA is an online battle arena video game developed and published by Valve. For now, we have two titles, one created back in 2003, followed by the second title in 2013. DOTA 2 was quite the big hit after its release, and many players have eagerly awaited the third title after 2013. Last year there was an among forums that Dota 3 would launch exclusively on the Epic Games Store. But we did not see anything like that last year.
And now, we are still struggling with the question on DOTA 3. If you are one of those users wondering about the arrival of the third title of DOTA, this article will help you. Here, we have compiled every rumor and information on DOTA 3. So without any further ado, let’s get into it.
DOTA 3 Release Date: PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox
It has been close to nine since the launch of DOTA 2, and fans are now eagerly waiting for the next title. The second title came after ten years after the first title’s release. Going by that time frame, we should get DOTA 3 in the market sometime in 2023. But this is only speculation considering the previous title release.
In April 2020, epic games announced that Dota 3 developers would place the game in the epic games store. So the information about the game being under development is undoubtedly true. We will certainly get DOTA 3 in the upcoming times. But the question remains about what is the progress on it. How far is the development team from releasing the final product on the market?
Valve’s co-founder Gabe Newell held a press release citing the Dota 3 developers as “taking his pre-order money” when they “were quietly negotiating an exclusivity arrangement behind the scenes. We need to put an end to these kinds of exclusives,” said Newell. He further added, “It’s not good for the industry. What is good for the industry is releasing every game on Steam, constantly, until the end of time, especially our games.”
Further, in another interview, a Dota 3 network engineer said, “I recognize that it may not be convenient for some people to install an extra launcher, but it turns out that it’s quite convenient for me to have the extra cash.”
So you can be sure that you will receive some information about DOTA 3 in 2022. The chances of the game launching this year are slim, but 2023 does seem like a good year.
Where will the game release?
DOTA 2 was not available for PS4. But now, in 2022, we can be sure that when DOTA 3 launches, it will be available to play on PS5. When the game releases, the latest Xbox will also get the title. Like the previous two versions, PC users will also get the game.
The possibility of DOTA 3 coming to Switch is almost none. DOTA 3 will require a fair of power, and the Switch, with its current specifications, is not capable enough to run it.
So this is all about the release of DOTA 3. If you have any questions or queries about this article, comment below, and we will get back to you. Also, check out our other articles on iPhone tips and tricks, Android tips and tricks, PC tips and tricks, and much more for more helpful information.
