Hearthstone: Blizzard Hints New Hero Class Alternatives with King Magni

Blizzard Entertainment France posted in the official twitter account an animation of a new alternate Warrior class hero: King Magni. Is Blizzard hinting new portraits are coming?

Imagine Nobundo as a Alliance Shaman hero in Hearthstone. Or Zen’tabra as a new Horde Druid hero? Would be awesome to see Blizzard add new hero choices, some unlockable as well.

Update: Blizzard (USA) posted an overview page of King Magni. This will be a new service where you can buy new Hero class alternatives for $9.99. — read more.

Hearthstone: Blizzard Hints New Hero Class Alternatives with King Magni

Speculation

Taking a glimpse at past Hearthstone content release windows, Team 5 is launching new content (either an Adventure or an expansion) every 4 months (and few days) as seen in the dates below:

Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft (core game): March 11, 2014
|
4 months later
|
Curse of Naxxramas (Adventure): July 22, 2014
|
4 months later
|
Goblin vs Gnomes (expansion): December 8, 2014
|
4 months later
|
Blackrock Mountain (Adventure): April 2, 2015
|
4 months later
|
????????? (expansion?): August ?, 2015
 

As seen in the release date window above, Blizzard is indeed launching new content every 4 months. Our writer Benjamin Vogt pointed out that the new Hero classes might be in the in-game shop every few weeks, and if our calculations aren’t too flawed this might be actually a countdown toward GamesCom which is coincidentially happening in August 5-9 (around the time when the 4th month after Blackrock Mountain happens).

Any conspiracy theorists out there thinking what we are thinking?
