In the past, Blizzard has sounded open to the idea of having Hearthstone on Switch. Last April for example, senior game designer Mike Donais said that “it’s a good discussion worth having.”

Unfortunately, at least for now, Blizzard is ruling out a Switch version of Hearthstone. When asked about rumors about it crossing over to Nintendo’s platform, game designer Dean Ayala simply stated: “There are no plans to move Hearthstone to the Nintendo Switch.”

Ayala could be playing coy, but the more probable answer is that it’s just not happening.


Hearthstone, Blizzard’s popular collectible card game, has stayed on mobile and PC since its launch a few years ago. With Switch out on the market, fans are wondering if it could eventually land on the new console.

Express Online did ask Hearthstone senior game designer Mike Donais about the possibility. “I personally haven’t talked about it but I’m more focused on card design,” he said. “Hearthstone is available on iPads and phones, so it’s a good discussion worth having.”

Director Jeff Kaplan recently said in a Reddit AMA that bringing Hearthstone to Switch would be “very challenging”. However, he also noted that the team is “always open minded about exploring possible platforms.”
