A message from Erik Johnson regarding Siltbreaker delay. from DotA2

Seems pretty reasonable to us, as we know the backlash that Valve would get if they released a buggy co-op campaign.

Siltbreaker is set to be the first Dota 2 content with a story, and this has got many fans very excited. In fact it is the first Valve project to feature a full story for quite some time. Hopefully the short delay will mean this is as good as we all hope.
