    MMO-Champion announced Hearthstone 2 years ago

    http://www.mmo-champion.com/content/...-15-Blue-Posts

    Look at it below WOW X4.

    On other news, we have SC2 Phoenix(Project Blackstone?), Starcraft2 X2, Diablo3 X1, WOW Movie, WOW X5 and Titan at this year's BlizzCon.

    They didn't announce anything, they merely reproduced.

    Indeed. /mourn

    Maybe there once was a plan to do something with the WoW TCG, and maybe that got turned into Hearthstone, but that slate is no proof of that in any way.

    I do believe that too since they said they wanted to make a game with a smaller team, smaller scope and releasing it faster. 3 years is faster than Blizzard usually does, but it is a damn long time for this one. I suspect it only was a wish at that time, maybe it only became more concrete a year ago; SC2 and D3 being released might have allowed them more devs to work with full time.

    If he actually worked for them I think it would be harder for him to do what he does.

    He knows guys.

    Possibly gals too.

    Or maybe he DOES work for them and he's just that good. Eh? Eh?

    3 years? I hope that has nothing to do with the speed of the devolopment tho. I do hope it eventually turned into this by "lets do something" -> "maytbe if" -> "yes good lets go".
    I mean if they really worked this for 3 years (little over time) it better be one hell of a card game.

    Might not have been prio 1. Just because it has been announced that they want to release a digital card game 3 years ago does not mean they have been working on it ever since.

    Why did the kitten have to die, OP!? You fiend! Stop using that thing, save the kittens!

    It's off by now anyway, so can't use it anymore as an excuse.

    I noticed the schedule is slipping. We still know nothing about "SC: Phoenix", and while Project Blackstone may lead up to it, the news has been mostly silent.

    The slate could have been made before the team was even fully assembled. They could have had one guy sitting there with the idea and waiting for the go ahead to assemble the Avengers his team.

    I'm sorry, but this doesn't mean that they had Hearthstone planned 2 years ago. They have a TCG they've been developing and supporting for 5+ years. It has literally nothing to do with Hearthstone, and they recently just released a new set for it (Timewalkers: Betrayal of the Guardian released February 2013).

    Every time you have a question that begins with "Why?" that is about what other people prefer to do with their own goddamn time, come back here, and reread the first row of this post. That will ALWAYS be the answer to your question. Have a nice day.

    Hearthstone is a CCG, not a TCG. Please know the difference.

    Potentially SC2 phoenix is a new version of SC Ghost (as in, they're reviving a killed project)?

    Of course, they could have just been speculating about bringing it back and may have decided not to. It's been awhile since then, anyway.
