Hearthstone hits iPad in Australia, Canada and NZ today, 'coming soon' worldwide

Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft, Blizzard Entertainment's collectible card game, was released today for iPad in Australia, Canada and New Zealand and will arrive "soon" in the rest of the world, the developer announced today.

Blizzard announced plans for Android and iPhone releases at Blizzcon 2013. Android, iPhone and Windows tablet versions are in development and "will be available in the future," according to Blizzard. Hearthstone exited its beta on Mac and Windows PC earlier this month.

"Hearthstone's player base has already grown to more than 10 million registered accounts following the official Windows and Mac release, but we saw that a few people online were holding out for the iPad version," said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. "Instead of calling those folks up individually, we figured we might as well let everyone know that the global iPad rollout for Hearthstone has begun, and pretty soon it'll be available everywhere. The game is a natural fit for tablets-we encourage everyone to check it out on their couch, in their backyard, in a coffee shop … or anywhere else they take their iPads."
