What Does the Future Hold for Hearthstone Esports?
Hearthstone is nothing short of a juggernaut these days. The game hit 70 million players as of May 1, and is currently enjoying one of the most diverse metas in its history, thanks to a new Standard rotation (where certain older sets are no longer playable in the main game mode) and the most recent expansion, Journey to Un’Goro.
Hearthstone’s esports scene is obviously a huge part of that picture too, and has grown in leaps and bounds since the early days. 2017 in particular has seen the Hearthstone Championship Tour (HCT) really find its feet and Blizzard has actively started up a number of other interesting programs.
