I think we can go ahead and label Blizzard’s digital card game a success now. I mean, most of us had already considered it as such, but now we have a banner number to back up the claims.
Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft, it turns out, has seen 20,000,000 players so far. That’s with an official release date that hit back in just March of this year. The news comes from an official tweet.

Truth be told, Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft is pretty awesome. Listen, I’m a guy who typically does not like trading card games and doesn’t really follow World of Warcraft (give me another RTS, please), but I’ll totally admit that Hearthstone has all the makings of one of the best games to come out in a long time.
Plus, it’s a fairly balanced free-to-play affair. That, in and of itself, is huge.
Have you dabbled in Hearthstone yet?
