However, as Chief Creative Officer Rob Pardo has tweeted the following, soon (tm) may have just become a lot sooner.
Feels like an early Xmas - I get to start "testing" in the Hearthstone beta from my iPad- Rob Pardo (@Rob_Pardo) October 4, 2013
For iOS users at least, this is exciting news! Could we see an iPad version of the game for download by Blizzcon, even? Those of us on Android systems, it seems, may need to wait a bit longer.
What are your thoughts? Personally, although I'm an Android person rather than an iOS user, I would love to play Hearthstone on a tablet rather than a PC. It just feels like a game that you should be able to play sitting on a sofa or on the bus, rather than sat at a computer desk. So, the news that it's rolled out into general internal testing on an iPad, and ready to the point that Rob Pardo can tweet about it, is exciting indeed.
