Blizzard plans to share some Hearthstone data via upcoming API

Developers looking for a little more insight into how people play Hearthstone may appreciate the news that Blizzard is planning to release an official API for its popular F2P game in the near future.

Developers looking for a little more insight into how people play Hearthstone may appreciate the news that Blizzard is planning to release an official API for its popular F2P cross-platform card game in the near future.

The game has become a big hit for parent company Activision Blizzard in the roughly 18 months since its launch, "far exceeding expectations" financially and driving some mobile F2P game makers to reconsider how they make games.

It may soon be easier to study, as a Blizzard employee took to its official forum recently to say that the company will release its own Hearthstone API (though when it is due out or what data you can expect to pull from it is yet unclear.)

Fans of the game have already created a number of unofficial APIs for the game to surface data like card images and descriptions, but an official Blizzard API could offer up more valuable data like player stats and match outcomes.
