Old Gods Expansion Could Have Included Titans

The Golden Wisp podcast had Peter Whalen, Hearthstone Game Designer, on to discuss the design of the Old Gods expansion. There were a few interesting bits of information he had to share about the design around the expansion and card nerfs.

Hopefully Titans will one day be a thing in Hearthstone!

Quote from Peter Whalen

  • The team wanted to do an expansion featuring Old Gods vs The Titans but couldn't find room to flesh both out within 130 cards.
  • C'Thun and his buffing minions had used a keyword called Ritual / Ritualists.
  • They don't want to add too many new mechanics to the game - it can make it more difficult for new players to understand the game.
