This page lists the known unreleased content for Dota 2. Only factual data, leaked or confirmed by Valve Corporation, is listed. Development of Dota 2 is for most of its part confidential and it's difficult to determine if this content will be released on the main client or it will be scrapped.

These are heroes that are currently in a moderately advanced state of development by Valve and should be released "soon". Unreleased Heroes tend to have only extremely crude or comedic icons and avatars (often until they are announced for the next update), or just voice responses. Particles status is often difficult to evaluate.
