Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft Popularity Dropping? Blizzard is Not Panicking

By on

Based on the latest statistics, Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft is currently lagging when compared to other popular games out there.

Current Standing

This game was created and developed by Blizzard, a game developer that created a string of successful multiplayer online games.

The game made a successful launch last April, but is currently at number 23 on App Store charts. ?But, we all know that the mobile gaming industry is a very competitive business, and being at the 23rd spot is quite an achievement. Most game developers would be ecstatic if their game reached this far.

Hearthstone Will Climb up

Despite the rating, Blizzard is confident that ?Hearthstone? will climb up.

Analyst Doug Creutz explains, ?With a significant ?Adventure Mode? content update coming this summer, we expect the game to return to the top 20 before the end of Q3.?

Creutz also noted ?We also believe the planned smart phone versions of the game will be successful.?

One gaming platform that can make the Hearthstone game climb up back again, is the iPhone and Android phones. The small screen may prove to be a hindrance. But a few card games on these phones have shown that it could work.

Curse of Naxxramas Expansion

This new Hearthstone expansion is coming this July. The expansion can encourage the players to build their decks without the need to directly confront another human player. A PvP or player versus player mode can be quite tedious and takes too much time especially for casual players.

First Card Game

Hearthstone is the first digital collectible card game developed by Blizzard. The card game features characters from Warcraft. Unlike the multiplayer online game of Warcraft, Hearthstone is a free to play game. It is free to download and currently available on PC and iPads. Although Hearthstone is an online game, combat is limited to one on one or PvP mode. Except for the tutorial, a player can choose to play on constructed or arena mode.
