The lights are on
Blizzard has filed a trademark for something called Heroes of the Storm.
The trademark's description doesn't say much, but the USPTO page says it's for the general list of computer games and downloadable software. The notable smidgen of info is that it also covers "downloadable electronic game software for use on portable electronic devices such as mobile and cellular phones, laptops, handheld computers, and tablet PCs."
Perhaps BlizzCon 2013 in November will shed more light on the subject.

Our Take:Trademarks can be for anything – and sometimes they are filed for stuff that doesn't come to pass – but here's hoping that this is some kind of cool mobile/tablet initiative.
Email the author Matthew Kato, or follow on Twitter, and Game Informer.
Good eye, Kato.
I think it has something to do the Hearthstone. It might be a expansion pack, deck/cards.
This would be pretty cool if it is connected to Diablo.
Thanks for the update!
Really guys? Its obviously StarCraft III. Wings "of" Liberty, Heart "of" the Swarm, now Heroes "of" the Storm. Not hard to find the similarity, and one of the Protoss which this one should be for have a move called "Storm" I could just be going out on a limb but thats what it is most likely.
Ugh, please don't be anything on mobile! It's such a waste to me but I do understand there is a big crowd out there who likes such things..
Come on. MOBAs can't be played professionally on mobiles and tablets. We know Blizzard is using All-Stars for e-sports, it's what they do.
Plus, All-Stars won't have physical copies and discs.
This is Expansion 5 for WoW, and the mobile and tablet bit probably covers Pet Battles going mobile or some such thing.
