Be sure to check out our twitter feed all weekend for the latest Blizzcon news and images. We will be posting quotes and images of all the news and announcements. Additionally, we will be writing full length articles after Blizzcon has concluded. Thanks for choosing Healcraft!
In a shocking announcement yesterday, Greg Street, who is known by his screen name “Ghostcrawler”, revealed that he is leaving Blizzard Entertainment. According to Street’s personal facebook account, he will be pursuing a “great opportunity for something new and exciting.”
Minutes ago, Blizzard launched an official Heroes of the Storm webpage. Heroes of the Storm was allegedly trademarked to Blizzard less than a month ago. However, there was speculation on if the trademark was a red herring, filed falsely under Blizzard’s name, or a new franchise for the developer. The name was unlikely to be that of the expected World of Warcraft expansion, and their other franchises’ expansions already have announced names.
Early this morning, at PAX East Blizzard revealed what the secret new game is! Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft, a digital collectable card game, will be hitting PC, Mac, and Apple iPad sometime in the near future. Although most of us here at Healcraft expected a Blizzard All-Stars announcement, Hearthstone is not too far out in left field. This is especially true after seeing the use of an Pad in the video released (see below). I for one, am excited to see Blizzard finally move into the mobile gaming space. There is so much potential for mobile games to branch off from already existing franchises. Think Pet Battles or Tillers Farming on your mobile device. However, let’s get back to Hearthstone.
