It is about time that Blizzard Entertainment really starts talking about the next Hearthstone expansion because the fans have had enough fun speculating whether it is Whispers of Old Gods or not. And, looks like the developers are well aware of that! Blizzard has pointed towards a later date this weekend, asking fans to sit in tight for some news.
They took to the official Battle.net website with a post titled “special Hearthstone announcement at the Winter Championship” followed by a conventional dip into the lore while revealing that the game’s Lead Designer Ben Brode and Senior Producer Yong Woo will be unveiling the next Hearthstone expansion.
Something inside the Tavern stirs . . . what could it be? Don’t worry – you won’t be alone! Our very own Lead Designer Ben Brode and Senior Producer Yong Woo will kick off the weekend of the Americas Winter Championship with an announcement about what’s coming next for Hearthstone.
So when exactly is this going to be? Blizzard Entertainment has revealed that they will make the announcement on this Friday i.e. March 11 at 10:00 a.m. PST.
And where are we going to be able to watch it? The official Twitch channel of Hearthstone of course. you can hook up with that for the livestream right here.
The have been some rumors at least that the expansion will take on a twist from the World of Warcraft lore related to the Old Gods, the expansion is going to be called Whispers of Old Gods, apparently.
Oh and don’t forget April 1 is coming up too, so whether they talk about the next Hearthstone expansion or not, we are going to be a little doubtful thanks to Blizzard’s history of playing around with April Fool’s Day.
