Blizzard’s Hearthstone is popular on all the platforms it is available on. It works perfectly as a desktop game, but the gameplay style also makes it a perfect game on the go, which is no doubt why Blizzard chose to launch it on mobile phones and tablets. So could it show up on the Nintendo Switch?
According to a recent interview, Hearthstone’s senior game designer Peter Whalen said that launching it on the Switch might be possible.
He said, “I dunno, I don’t think anyone is working on it, but I wouldn’t rule it out either. Moving to tablets and phones was awesome. It made Hearthstone way more accessible for way, way more people, which is fantastic.”
And earlier in the year, the game’s other senior designers said that launching the game on the Switch was a possibility and a discussion worth having. Whalen also said, “If there are other consoles or platforms that are good for us then that’s absolutely something we’d explore in time.”
We heard speculation last year that Hearthstone could arrive for the Switch, but it never happened. It’s nice to know that Blizzard hasn’t ruled out the possibility at least. Fans who own a Switch would love it.
