Blizzard has announced that the Android tablet version of the massively popular Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft is set to release by the end of the year on their Battle.net Blog on the subject. The developer reasoned that development was making great progress and they just “got a few more mana crystals to polish and some Angry Chickens to chase down.”
Whilst recent additions to the PC version of the game added Windows 8 Touch compatibility, there is no word on a Windows Phone 8 compatible release.
iPhone and Android mobile versions are also due but won’t make an appearance until 2015. The reason behind this release date difference is screen size:
Releasing Hearthstone on iPhone and Android phones is something we’re incredibly excited about, but ultimately we’d rather take the extra time to make Hearthstone’s user interface on the phone customized to feel great for the platform, rather than a port that doesn’t taken into account the limitations of a smaller screen.
Blizzard also released an info graphic about the player behaviour on the game so far which is currently available on PC’s and iPad devices.
