Auto Chess originally launched on PlayStation 4 late last year, though the game has been available on mobile devices (Android and iOS) and PC (via the Epic Games Store) since mid-2019. The game had spawned from a Dota 2 mod, which, after becoming quite popular among the PC community, was almost picked up by Dota creator Valve.
