TI11 True Sight might just be around the corner..
TI12 is ending in four more days. Dota 2's annual grand championship will crown the new world champions very soon. But one thing is missing and fans can't help but wonder.. where is the highly-anticipated documentary, TI11 True Sight?
Ever since the Kiev Major in 2017, Valve has been releasing the documentary series, True Sight, which captures the story of Dota 2 tournament finals. This comes in the form of a full-length documentary, showcasing the highs and lows of competition, not only inside but also outside of the game. The True Sight series is incredibly popular - accumulating millions of views on YouTube.
While TI12 quickly approaches the end, we have yet to see any signs of TI11 True Sight. And some fans are concerned that old rumors about True Sight not being released this year might actually be true. But fret not, the TI11 True Sight is likely coming our way soon!
TI11 True Sight promised to come near TI finals
UPDATE: TI12 has concluded and True Sight was not premiered. It is unknown whether or not Valve plans to delay or not release the True Sight at all.
TI11 True Sight "will come out closer to TI finals than TI itself," freelance journalist, Kenny Utama shared the news in October 2022. This insider info came during a meeting that Valve held with teams at TI11. This means that Tundra Esports' dominant victory at TI11 will be premiered around the TI12 finals date, which is October 29th.

It is unclear whether the TI11 True Sight will come before or after the finals. But we can expect it to arrive during game breaks when Valve usually drops announcements and exciting news. This will likely be during the break before the TI12 finals occur.
When does Valve usually drop its legendary documentary?
There is no definite pattern to the True Sight release dates. Valve is notorious for working on the mysterious Valve hours, and fans usually just sit back and wait. But we can take a look at previous True Sight release dates to make a guess!
The TI7 True Sight was released almost a year after Team Liquid lifted the Aegis. The True Sights for 2018 and 2019 were released in January next year, five months after TI ended. Following the pandemic and a delay to TI10, the TI10 True Sight was pushed back and premiered eleven months later in September.
Let's hope we'll get to spectate another True Sight series soon!
