Usually when a game gets cloned a Cease and Desist order is sent, usually to Google, and the offending title is taken down. This could be a simple trademark violation or a blatant cloning of another game. Blizzard, however, is taking it a step further and suing a Hearthstone clone that happens to be already available on iOS and Android.
BlizzCon 2013 has just gotten underway today and one of the first announcements to come out of the event regading any sort of mobile gaming is the fact that their multiplayer TCG called Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft will indeed be coming to Android devices as well, not just the iPad.
When Blizzard announced their new game, which ended up being a TCG called Hearthstone, it was also announced for iOS gamers to play on the iPad. However other mobile platforms were left behind like our beloved Android platform. New evidence is pointing towards the possibility that an Android and Windows Phone version of Hearthstone could be arriving soon.
PAX East 2013 began just over an hour ago or so ago and one of the first major press events was Blizzard’s where they announced their new game Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft. While it will be available for PC and Mac of course, this title becomes their first mobile available game but if you followed the event then you probably know where we are going with this already. Unfortunately the only mobile platform that is being supported, at least for now, is the iPad.
