In the newest developer post, Blizzard announced that its breakout TCG, Hearthstone will be coming to Android Tablets by the end of the year. A mobile port of Hearthstone has been a long time coming. Blizzard states that the delays have been due, in part, to the games interface being redesigned to suit a mobile environment. For more information on the upcoming mobile release, be sure to read the detailed blog post on Blizzard’s official website.
Throughout the past year, many of you have been asking about the release date for Hearthstone on Android. The team has been hard at work to bring Hearthstone to that platform, and is making great progress. We’re taking things one step at a time and we’ve got our sights set on a release for Android tablets, our next new platform, before the end of the year; we’ve just got a few more mana crystals to polish and some Angry Chickens to chase down.
We’re also close to having Hearthstone out to our iPhone and Android phone users, but it’s become clear that we need a little more time to get that version right. While we have a build up and running internally, it needs a bit more work, and we don’t feel like we’ll be ready to share it with you until early next year. It’s very important to us that the phone experience for Hearthstone is just as accessible as the tablet and PC versions. One of the biggest challenges with that is revamping the user interface so it feels intuitive and offers the same quality Hearthstone experience, but this time from the palm of your hand.Related: Blizzard Entertainment, Card Game, Hearthstone
