Hearthstone is set to get an official spectator mode shortly after the game has launched, according to Blizzard’s e-Sports manager Kim Phan.
“We have a full list of features that we would love to see from an eSports point of view,” Phan told BlizzPro. “Really we are trying to figure out what people want the most, and what is really high on the list right now is spectator mode.”
Phan added that the Hearthstone team regularly meets with Blizzard’s e-Sports team to catch up on the latest Hearthstone tournaments and to see what’s happening in the community as a whole. While the mode is high up on the to-do list it won’t be ready for launch, according to Phan, but it should be implemented “shortly after.”
Hearthstone is currently in open beta.
