Heroes of the Storm players shouldn’t expect any more content updates in Blizzard’s crossover MOBA (multiplayer online battle arena) title.

In a new blog post meant to celebrate Heroes of the Storm’s seven-year anniversary, Blizzard confirmed that it has no plans to develop any new for-purchase content for the team brawler, which originally released for Windows and macOS on June 2, 2015. The MOBA allows players to compete in 5-versus-5 matches as a variety of characters from Blizzard’s biggest franchises, including Warcraft, Starcraft, and Diablo.

Heroes of the Storm will be joining the ranks of older Blizzard titles that include StarCraft and StarCraft II, two games that no longer benefit from new content but continue to receive occasional support in the form of patches for addressing bugs and/or balance issues. Blizzard has clarified that seasonal rolls and hero rotations will continue in Heroes of the Storm, however, and its in-game shop will also remain operational.

As a token of appreciation, Blizzard will be gifting an “incredibly rare” Epic Arcane Lizard mount to all players as part of a patch that will be rolling out next week. Heroes of the Storm’s last patch was released in March, one that introduced balance changes to a number of heroes that include Anub’arak, Whitemane, and Thrall, one of Warcraft’s most iconic characters.

This June marks the seven-year anniversary of Heroes of the Storm. Combining legendary characters from all of our universes, it naturally brought players together into a truly unique experience. Heroes and its community are home to some of the most passionate gamers from around the world and we’re committed to making sure that you can continue to enjoy your adventures through the Nexus.

To our Heroes community, we say, “thank you”. You continue to be one of our most passionate communities, we’re grateful for your continued dedication and support, and as always, we look forward to seeing you in the Nexus.

  1. As much as I like blizzard games, I think they have too many games that require continued developement for their company to be able to keep up. (wow, hots, heartstone, overwatch). They need to come up with some games that can stand on their own after release, should help with burn out too.
