It is never to soon to plan ahead – I mean, some people have their Christmas decorations up already – so it’s perhaps reasonable that Valve have scheduled Dota 2‘s next International.
The next gigantic invitational world tournament for Dota 2 (The International 5 or The International 2015, if you prefer) will, according to Valve, be taking place in Seattle between 3 August and 8 August 2015. It’ll run for six full days, feature 16 teams, aaaand okay no that’s about everything.
Ticket availability will be revealed at a later date, and team invitations will be happening on 1 May. No word on which venue it’ll be using, but it’ll most likely be KeyArena again. And with a bit of luck, the finals will be worth watching, this year!Related to this article
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
