Blizzard Has an Announcement On July 22nd, Probably a New ‘Hearthstone’ Expansion

TouchArcade Rating:

Just a few weeks ago, we wrote about Blizzard teasing a new Hearthstone (Free) expansion that looked like it could have a Pirates vs Ninjas theme, or something along those lines. Well, Blizzard has sent an actual scroll to PCGamer, declaring that the company will announce some news on July 22nd. The scroll says:


Champions are gathering from around the world to witness the next exciting thing Hearthstone has in store. News travels far and wide in search of brave new faces ready to answer the call to arms — Are you one of them? Muster for battle and mark July 22 on your calendar. The next bit of news won’t come by carrier pigeon — thankfully, we have much better ways of communication now. Victory awaits!


Although the announcement doesn’t offer any details regarding what Blizzard will actually announce, most people on reddit believe a new expansion is coming soon. According to the PCGamer article, the theme that plays in the video is the one from Argent Tournament, the World of Warcraft Wrath of the Lich King expansion. It’s quite likely, then, that the expansion will have some kind of Argent Tournament-related theme. Though Hearthstone reigns supreme at the moment, Blizzard wants to keep it on top by adding new features, like Tavern Brawl, and new cards. Would a Pirates Vs Ninjas expansion please you, or do you hope Blizzard goes for a different theme? We only have nineteen days to wait, and I’m counting each one.
