Hearthstone Android, iPhone release date blues

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.

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.

“Unknown reasons”. Probably because the difficulty of fitting the experience onto an iphone screen is pretty much just as difficult to do on the variety of Android tablets/phones.

‘Unknown reasons’ uhh it’s because of the multiple different screen resolutions that android supports, pretty well known.

I’m waiting for the android version, because this game is not good enough for pc, but makes sense on a phone as it is small, and turn based which when playing the ai works great for a phone as you may not always be playing a whole game on the go. As far as the online goes I’m not about to invest a million man hours or dollars to get a decent deck, but it’s not that bad and I await the android version and the single player options they are going to add. Not playing online anymore though.

Android has 80% of the mobile market share. I will never understand companies that only develop for iOS or that endlessly delay the Android versions of apps.

Why would you release this for iPad before Android? Apple products are garbage, and a small percentage of the market share.

The reasons that theyre not releasing it on both android, iphone and ipad simultaniously is because ipad version only took a little editing as the program code used for apps is C. For android they need to re write the whole program in java. So unfortunately we have to wait for them to re-make the whole game using a different programming code before we can enjoy playing this brilliant game on our tablets or phones =(.

I would think that with so many android phablets it would be a shame to release Hearthstone on the android tablets and not the phones at the same time because you will end up with a divide of customers. That being said I really want to be able to play it on my phablet.

How do you think you’ll be able to see what youre doing? Im not sure about other card games, but this ones got graphics that fly across the game board. It eats GPU of my brand new Ipad with some lag. I couldn’t imagine the lag on your phone. Not to mention the board is rather large.. Generally the HS team has a lot of work ahead of them to complete mobile versions and generally android tablets seem to have smaller screens, though i have not done my research.

I’ve got hs on my iPad but Its not like I can keep that in my pocket and have a round of hs whenever I want to? I just really wish the mobile version comes out sooner rather than later
