After hints of the impending world-wide release of Hearthstone on the iPad just one week ago from the show floor at PAX East, Hearthstone found itself available for download from Apple’s App Store this past Wednesday. By Thursday, it would find itself as the most downloaded app in 34 countries.
The time in which HearthStone surpassed the top downloaded games like Candy Crush is rather impressive. Critics believe that Hearthstone could stand to gross as much as $30 million this year, which, I believe, would have to ultimately be seen as a gigantic accomplishment for a team as small as Team Five. We’re not even sure if those numbers aren’t actually a bit too modest, since we here on the inside know that Adventure Mode is coming.
