Hearthstone is a card game released by Blizzard in 2014. Until then, players have only been used to Magic: The Gathering in terms of card games. With the release of Hearthstone, even players who had never played card games before wanted to give this production of Blizzard a chance because Hearthstone was inspired by other productions of Blizzard; Diablo, World of Warcraft, and Starcraft. And these games helped Hearthstone player count.

As time passed, the player count in Hearthstone reached millions. The biggest reason for this was that it was released on mobile platforms, Android and IOS. And it still maintains its place as the most-watched card game on Twitch. So how many people are playing Hearthstone after four years? Let’s take a closer look at this.

How Many People Play Hearthstone in 2021?

The Future of Hearthstone

Blizzard constantly releases new cards, mods, and expansion packs for Hearthstone. It also released the Battlegrounds mode in 2019 to compete with games such as Teamfight Tactics and Dota Underlords. Along with these, it continued to open up new gameplay areas for players by including the Duels mode in 2020.

The last expansion pack released is “United in Stormwind”, in August 2021. No expansion has been announced in the intervening six months. And although the cancellation of Blizzcon, which is expected to be held in 2022, was disappointing, Hearthstone is waiting for new updates in the coming months.
