Blizzard has revealed that Heroes of the Storm is now the name of its upcoming MOBA, formerly known as Blizzard All-Stars.

The publisher has released a new site and a teaser animation for the game, showing characters from WarCraft, StarCraft, and Diablo. The teaser was produced by Jon Burton of Carbot Animations. Blizzard trademarked Heroes of the Storm last month.

"Set aside whatever you think you knew about Blizzard All-Stars, and get ready for what's brewing at this year's BlizzCon," reads Blizzard's description for its teaser.

Blizzard is holding this year's two-day BlizzCon event in Anaheim, California, starting November 8.

Blizzard All-Stars was formerly called Blizzard Dota when it was announced at BlizzCon 2010, and was originally planned to launch as a mod for the then-upcoming StarCraft II.

The original Defense of the Ancients: All-Stars was a mod for WarCraft III, with Half-Life maker Valve now behind its sequel, Dota 2. Blizzard renamed Blizzard Dota in 2011, after settling a legal dispute with Valve over the rights to the Dota trademark.
