By the end of this year, Blizzard is planning to overhaul its website, and the title page for Hearthstone is going to get a facelift.
While the title of the game’s newest expansion is the same as its predecessor, there’s going to be a new title page to indicate that.
In a blog post from this weekend, Blizzard’s Head of Product Marketing Jon Wielechowski revealed that Hearthstone will receive an updated version of its title page.
“The Hearthstone title page will receive a facile update to reflect the most recent changes in Hearthstone’s code,” Wieletowski wrote.
“The title page is a resource for new and returning players alike, and we think this update will make Hearthstone a more enjoyable and engaging experience for both new and veteran players alike.
We’ll also be releasing a new version of the Hearthstone website on March 3, 2018, and will be updating our community hub in the coming weeks to provide more information on the new site.”
The announcement comes after a lengthy discussion between Blizzard and the Hearthstone team.
Blizzard was originally planning to have the title “Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft” on the site for a while, but the developers wanted to keep the title updated.
That led to a lengthy internal debate between Blizzard’s developers and Hearthstone’s designers.
The title “Heroes of Warcraft: Heroes Rise” on Hearthstone’s website had been updated on April 15, but it was removed from the Hearthstone app and replaced with “Herodys Rise.”
That title changed in late February, and was replaced with an image of the character and a placeholder title for the game.
Blizzard eventually decided to put the placeholder title on the title screen of the app instead, and then on March 1, the title was replaced by a new image of a young man and a new placeholder title.
A recent article by Kotaku noted that this was due to a change in the design of the card-handling system, which was meant to allow players to interact with cards on the page.
Wielettechowski said that the team “removed the ‘hand’ part of the term from the card name, but added the ‘image’ part to indicate the new image.”
