Blizzard Teases Possible Gadgetzan Expansion For Hearthstone

The official Hearthstone Twitter account has posed an image of a fake postcard that highlights the goblin outpost of Gadgetzan from the World of Warcraft. This could be a tease for a possible expansion coming to the popular online trading card game, especially with BlizzCon 2016 just a week away.


According to IGN, a Reddit user named BllHicksBoiii found a domain name called, which they believe to have been claimed by Blizzard entertainment the same way the company claimed before the One Night in Karazhan adventure was released.

A Gadgetzan set could mean the return of more robots and goblin-engineered inventions, all of which look haphazardly slapped together in the game. Couple it with some explosive cards and maybe even a mechanic that works off goblin greed or the infamous Gadgetzan Auction House, and you have a pretty unique set on your hands.

Upon closer inspection of the postcard, you can read tiny text that wraps around the image and says, "The word "safe" is not meant to constitute a binding agreement and does not imply safety, security, protection, preservation, peace of mind, confidence, reliability, dependability or trustworthiness.

Here's hoping we'll see an announcement at BlizzCon 2016. Until then, we're going to dream up possible deck ideas and get into some Tavern Brawls while trying to wrap our heads around the Warcraft movie.
