Blizzard will keep adding new heroes & battlegrounds forever
Heroes of the Storm fans should expect new heroes & battlegrounds forever. PCGamer snatched away a nice interview with Heroes of the Storm game director Dustin Browder. The developer says in a nutshell that they plan to add new heroes and new battlegrounds frequently (after launch), keeping the game fresh and evolving without remaing stale or stagnant.
PCGamer: Blizzard will keep adding new heroes & battlegrounds forever
PCGamer: Well, I’m sure you’ve got a number you’re not allowed to tell me about.
Dustin: It’s just I have like another six that are being tested internally, and I get confused because I play that at the office and I play a different version at home. […] We’re just going to keep adding heroes forever until we get sick of it and stop at this point. There’s no secret number and there’s no number that determines when we launch. I’ve had that asked many many times like “so, how many heroes do you need to launch?” and then they’re doing the math and counting like “you do about about one a month…That’s six months! Gotcha!” Unfortunately, I would launch today with the number of heroes we have. I’m good. The heroes are cool. We’re ready to go.
PCGamer: How about maps?
Dustin: We’re adding them as frequently as we can, and we’re going to keep adding them as frequently as we can, even after launch. What you’re seeing now is not a burst of speed prior to launch. This is the pace that we’re hoping to continue developing at going forward.
