DOTA 2 comes to BLAST

24th May 2024

Portfolio company BLAST have revealed plans to enter DOTA 2 (a 2013 multiplayer online battle arena video game) with a full schedule of events to be rolled out in 2024/25. The first studio event will take place in November, ahead of four events taking place in 2025.

BLAST Slam will become the new home of DOTA 2 E-sports by arranging a tournament series focused on unparalleled production quality and game-changing fan-first moments.

Andrew Haworth, VP of Ecosystems at Valve & Riot Games at BLAST, said:

“We are delighted to be entering DOTA 2 and have plans for BLAST to bring a new level of production and excitement that DOTA fans haven’t seen before. It’s a game we love as fans and players, we’ve been following closely as an interested tournament organiser for the last few years. As we’ve grown as a business and expand into further titles, DOTA has always been on our wish list. With the recent changes to the DOTA ecosystem we feel it’s the perfect opportunity for BLAST to come in, provide the community with the next level of tournaments and become the new home of DOTA 2.

“BLAST prides itself on unparalleled production quality and game changing fan-first moments while bringing together the very best teams and biggest superstars to fight it out for glory on the server. We look forward to bringing this approach to the world of DOTA 2 and providing fans with the best E-sports entertainment on offer.”
