Hearthstone releases on iPad in Canada, US release 'coming soon'

Blizzard has deployed the iPad version of Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft in select regions, with Canada among the first to receive the iOS incarnation of the free-to-play collectible card game. A U.S. release date has still not been announced, but Blizzard notes that it is imminent.

Other regions getting their first crack at Hearthstone on iPad include Australia and New Zealand. Blizzard declined to give a specific date for when Hearthstone would arrive in the App Store in other regions (including the U.S.), but it is notable that the iPad version looks to be ready for distribution anywhere only a mere three weeks after it officially released on PC and Mac.

Battle.net states, "Launching Hearthstone in a limited set of countries allows us to focus on the end-to-end player experience and make sure it's awesome before we move on to the rest of the world. If you don't live in Australia, Canada, or New Zealand, you don’t have much longer to wait to get your hands on Hearthstone for iPad—Murloc Scout's honor."
