Both Valve and Drodo are Working on a Variant of Dota Auto Chess

Dota Auto Chess is an extremely popular modification for Dota 2. It is so popular in fact, that two separate companies are working on two unique variants of the modification.

Valve is creating a Steam-based version of Dota Auto Chess, and rumours are suggesting the name of the game is Dota Underlords. The rumor for the name stems from a trademark Valve has applied to, although little additional information is as of yet available.

Comparatively, Drodo Studios is working on their own version which they simply call Auto Chess. Drodo Studios are the original creators for the mod present on DOTA 2. The announcement was made during an Epic Game segment in the PC Gaming Show. Drodo Studios are also confirming that a mobile version of the game will be available.

Valve and Drodo Studios had previously discussed teaming up to tackle Auto Chess but ultimately decided to venture separate ways. Speaking about the decision, Valve says “We had great conversations, but we both came to the conclusion that Valve and Drodo could not work directly with each other for a variety of reasons. We ended up agreeing that we’ll each build our own stand-alone version of the game, and support each other to the fullest”.
