Quote from Hamilton Chu

Game Content

  •  New premium content will be added to the game which will not effect game balance. This includes:
    • New Heroes (Varian instead of Garrosh)
    • New Card Backs (Separate from the ones rewarded for ranked season play)
    • New Game Boards
  • Non-Warcraft themed elements will not be added to Hearthstone.
  • Achievements will eventually be added to the game.
  • Adventure modes will contain new quests, new game stages, and contain between 10 and 20 new cards.
    • The first adventure mode will be launched after the game releases on PC And iPad.
  • More rewards are planned for the ranked ladder.
  • The first planned expansion back will contain between 100 and 200 new cards.
  • Death Knights and Monks are not being currently worked on.

Features

  • The team is currently not working on a 2v2 mode. 1v1 needs to be solid first.
  • Observer mode is still on the list of things to do, but it is not being actively worked on.
  • The team is keeping an eye on the length of seasons, but are not considering adjusting the duration of them yet.
