One of the biggest games to impact the eSports world as we know, may be making a comeback! The team of Shield Battery is reworking StarCraft Brood Wars in order to make it work on newer operating systems. This revamp is currently in testing, and they are looking for more people to help them out! Check out this article here for more information.

Hearthstone News Banner

The digital trading card games are nothing new for Blizzard fans, but it seems that more people are trying to get in on the action as of late. Fox announced this past week that they will be releasing a TCG that will include different shows on their network like Family Guy, Futurama, American Dad and beyond. Could this open the door for other franchises looking to increase their audience of mobile gamers? Check out the article here. We personally can’t wait for the Weather Channel TCG! #Blizzard

The Diablo community was freaking out this past week worrying and wondering why Blizzard had a new opening for the Director of Diablo and it’s unnamed project. It was later released that Josh Mosqueira will be leaving Blizzard in order to pursue other adventures in life. It’s not known where Josh will be going just yet, but we wish him the best and we thank him for his hard work in changing the face of Diablo III as we know it! Read more about it here.
