Blizzard is not currently looking at bringing its hit online card game Hearthstone to consoles, according to production director Jason Chayes.

“The idea of getting it onto console has come up from players,” he told Eurogamer. “It’s not something we’re actually looking at right now. We feel like we have our hands full in the short term with getting onto Android as soon as we can, which is kind of one of the big priorities we’re looking at right now.”

Chayes added that the team may consider bringing the game to consoles if their is enough interest from consumers. “What we’ve said in the past, and this will continue to be the case, is that we want to be able to hear back from our community and our players what they’re really interested in, what they’re very passionate about,” he said. “If getting Hearthstone onto console is something there’s a huge interest in, then we’d love to hear about that so it’s something we can be thinking about.”

Blizzard is currently working on the game’s first expansion Curse of Naxxramas, which will add new PvE encounters and cards.
