Valve is preparing to switch the popular MOBA over to the Source 2 Engine very shortly, as part of the major Reborn Update.

According to a post on the Dota 2 blog, Valve is preparing to switch the popular MOBA over to the Source 2 Engine very shortly, as part of the major Reborn Update.

“Moving away from the Source 1 engine soon will allow us to better focus our efforts entirely on Source 2 in preparation for various upcoming tournaments,” the studio writes. “There are still a few features that will need some work when the update is released, but we plan to finish them quickly.”

Out now in the form of a limited Beta, the Reborn Update features a huge UI overhaul, with the aim of making it easy for players not just to jump into games, but to watch tournament and competitive matches.

Including a little thing called The International. You may have heard of it.
