We already knew Heroes of the Storm
was heading to China
, but now Blizzard has inked a deal to bring Heroes
-- and possibly other games -- to more of Southeast Asia. Expanding on Blizzard's existing agreement with Asiasoft
-- which currently distributes Diablo 3
, StarCraft 2
, and World of Warcraft
in Thailand, Malaysia, and Singapore -- the deal now includes Heroes of the Storm
and features distribution to the Philippines as well. Marketing and operation for the game in the Philippines will be handled by Asiasoft subsidiary Level Up! Inc.
No launch date has been set for Heroes of the Storm
-- currently in technical alpha -- domestically or internationally, but we assume it will arrive on the traditional Blizzard schedule of "when it's ready."
