On Monday, June 15, Blizzard Entertainment unveiled details regarding an upcoming event and content coming to Heroes of the Storm for the community to get their hands on as soon as possible. As the hero brawler recently celebrated its fifth birthday, the development team decided to thank the playerbase by returning a fan-favorite event and turn one of the most popular characters in the Blizzard universe into a playable Heroes of the Storm character.
And just like that, 2019 has nearly come to an end. Over the past 12 months, Blizzard Entertainment has continued to allow the Heroes of the Storm development team to churn out new content (albeit at a slower cadence than usual) and the community has had to adjust as well. Based on how 2018 came to an end, it could be much worse. In December of last year, President of Blizzard, J. Allen Brack, issued a statement declaring the Heroes of the Storm competitive scene would no longer be supported by the game's publisher and that developers would be reassigned to titles in the works and others that were deemed more important to the long-term health of the company.
