Is ‘Hearthstone’ Expansion “Blackrock Mountain” Set to Open April 2nd at 5:00 PM Eastern?

TouchArcade Rating:

If you enjoy reading internet tea leaves and playing Blizzard’s smash hit collectable card game Hearthstone, today is your lucky day. Earlier this month the Blackrock Mountain expansion was announced. If this is the first you’ve heard of it, it’s going to be another single player adventure similar to the Curse of Naxxramas expansion, featuring loads of single player encounters and of course- a bunch of new cards.

When specifically the expansion is going to hit Blizzard is keeping close to their chest, but some eagle eyed Hearthstone fans on Reddit think they’ve got it figured out. According to their cyber snooping, the Korean region games refund link effectively says, “You can refund it before Blackrock Mountain 1st wing(April 3rd 05:59 KST/ Correct time may vary)". 5:59 AM on April 3rd in Korea is 4:59 PM on April 2nd here in the USA, so… Hmm.


Stranger things have happened, but, I’m not really willing to put too many chips on a bet that this is the actual release date. That’s only a few days away, and Blizzard has barely even teased any cards. But, it’s plausible, at least, particularly if suddenly Hearthstone gets a large update and Blizzard puts the pedal to the metal when it comes to teasing out new cards on their various social channels.
