Hearthstone Rated by ESRB and PEGI – Launch Imminent?

Recently, community manager Zeriyah announced the Hearthstone open beta is coming to an end soon. The Developers have also posted on Twitter that fans should get the golden Gelbin Mekkatorque card as soon as possible.

All seems to indicate Blizzard Entertainment is preparing to announce the official release date of the Free-to-Play card game. It’s just a matter of time.

In comparison, the Diablo III: Reaper of Souls closed beta ended about a month before the upcoming release date (March 25). One might wonder if Hearthstone is going to be released within April, earlier or shortly after.

The ESRB and PEGI posted their rating of the video game on February 27. The Germany USK hasn’t posted its rating yet, however.

Something interesting for those with Windows Phone, the ESRB rating listed Heroes of Warcraft to be for the iOS, Macintosh, Mobile Phone, Windows PC, and Windows Phone.

These won’t be launched the same time as the PC/Mac, and no announcements have been made concerning an ETA.
