Hearthstone will arrive to Android tablets by the end of 2014

Hearthstone, Blizzard Entertainment’s popular free-to-play CCG (collectible card game) has already been a big hit on the PC ever since it was launched earlier this year. Now the company hopes to repeat that performance on Android tablets as well. A specific release date has not been announced yet, but Blizzard confirmed that Hearthstone will arrive to the said devices by the end of the year. “Throughout the past year, many of you have been asking about the release date for Hearthstone on Android,” reads a post on Battle.net. “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.”

Blizzard says that Hearthstone is currently in development for iPhone and Android phones as well, but we should only expect to see it on these devices sometime early next year. The company also added that the extra time will be spent on making the game as similar as possible to the tablet and PC versions. “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,” Blizzard said. “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.”

Hearthstone was first released on March 11th and is currently available on PC and iPad.
