While Hearthstone is now available to play on iPad, many users are still patiently waiting for any news regarding the highly anticipated Hearthstone Android and iPhone app release date.
Blizzard are taking their time with the mobile phone versions of the popular card game and now we have learned that the wait is going to continue until the second half of the year.
If you were assuming that Hearthstone on iPhone and Android would be out this Summer after the iPad version, unfortunately this would be a bad idea.
We now have confirmation from Blizzard themselves, stating that Hearthstone iPhone and Android apps will be released later this year. We’re guessing that focus will remain on PC, Mac and iPad until that time, although it is disappointing to see that Hearthstone still isn’t available on Android tablets yet.
For those inquiring about #Hearthstone Android and iPhone release dates, those devices are planned for later this year.

Dear Blizzard please develop Hearthstone for the android tablet too.

It would have been great to see Hearthstone on iPad and tablets such as the Nexus 7 at the same time, but for unknown reasons Android tablet users are being made to wait until the mobile versions are ready.
It’s obviously not ideal, but that’s the strategy that Blizzard are going for. If you are specifically waiting for iPhone, Android or Android tablet versions of Hearthstone, let us know your thoughts on the continued delay.
