Blizzard hasn’t revealed the subsequent World of Warcraft growth but, but it surely has revealed when will probably be revealed, in addition to the reveal timing for the subsequent Hearthstone growth and, with considerably much less specificity, the upcoming Warcraft cell recreation.
It should be a busy spring for Blizzard, starting with Hearthstone. The primary of three expansions deliberate for Hearthstone this yr shall be unveiled on March 15, shortly after which builders will “present a deeper look into the plans for Hearthstone for 2022—together with the annual core set adjustments.”
The reveal of the subsequent World of Warcraft growth will observe a month later, on April 19. WoW’s newest growth, Shadowlands, just about wrapped issues up with its final main patch, which rolled out in February.
A month after that, give or take—it is solely set for Could, with no particular date—the Warcraft cell recreation that was revealed in February shall be detailed to some better extent. That is the one which I feel is most attention-grabbing, at the very least for now, as a result of Blizzard hasn’t revealed something about what it truly is: As we famous final month, it could possibly be something from a cell redo of the unique Warcraft RTS to Hearthstone 2, though clearly that is extraordinarily unlikely. Blizzard did not make clear a lot with this announcement besides to counsel that will probably be one thing solely new, describing it as “the primary recreation within the Warcraft Universe designed for cell.”
“The way forward for Warcraft is vivid,” Warcraft normal supervisor John Hight wrote. “On behalf of all of us at Blizzard working to deliver much more thrilling Warcraft experiences to you, we thanks for being part of the group. We’re excited concerning the journey in entrance of us and are grateful that you simply’re becoming a member of us for it.”

He additionally introduced that he is leaving the Hearthstone group to work on a special, unannounced challenge inside Blizzard.
