Has Hearthstone Peaked?
In this podcast, Alex Collins and Michail Katkoff explore in details the reasons behind the decline of Hearthstone and what it takes for the game to recover.
For a long period of time, Hearthstone simply could do no wrong. Even between releases, they continued to have a strong showing in top grossing and download charts on mobile, while simultaneously being a consistent top-5 streaming game on Twitch.
However, Hearthstone eventually hit a point where the mechanics and metagame were becoming stale, and Blizzard found itself unable to keep things fresh without introducing a major shakeup. Since then, Hearthstone has been on the uneven ground, hemorrhaging players and ceding ground in the charts.
