Considering news surrounding Heroes of the Storm was pretty glum, but it seems there's a fair amount still going off. Heroes Lounge has raised over $10,000 for a pro-league prize pool, while the Blizzard team still look hard at work on all sorts of stuff. While there's no firm dates, a new Hero is on the horizon, and you'll finally be able to buy skins of your choice, rather than playing the RNG wheel. Not only that, but it looks like the shake-up has really focused the core team on their list of priorities. Full blog post can be found here.
- Finalizing the Hero Role overhaul
- Timing for rolling out the Ranked Play consolidation and improvements we discussed at BlizzCon
- Bringing back the ability to directly purchase individual skins with Gems
- Adding the ability to get more content like skins and mounts with Gold
First, the next few months will unfold much like we’d originally planned. In fact, our 85th hero will be announced soon before hitting the PTR the first week of January, and that hero will be followed by a string of cool events and hero reworks en route to our next hero release.
What we want to do beyond those releases is currently under discussion across the Heroes of the Storm team. The plans moving forward are going to be focused on the things that the Heroes team and all of you in our community are excited for. Our team has always thrived when we’re working on things we’re passionate about. While our team is smaller, we’re a fully functional group of developers who can create the features and content we all want, in time. I know everyone is eager to hear more, but we’re still in the early stages of these conversations, so we’ll share updates once the team has made some decisions.
