Heroes of the Storm Plans and New Hero Rumor

Who is Anduin Wrynn: Heroes of the Storm’s next hero(?) on Inven Global is a post examining a rumor that the next hero to join Heroes of the Storm will be Lord Anduin Llane Wrynn, "the High King of the Alliance, King of Stormwind, son of Varian Wrynn, nephew of Jaina Proudmoore and nephew of Magni Bronzebeard." This is unconfirmed, as it comes by way of a leak. On to more concrete news, a Heroes of the Storm Update from Heroes Production Director Kaéo Milker discusses the future of the MOBA since Blizzard dropped the games support for esports and moved many of its developers to new projects (thanks Game Informer). He does not confirm that Anduin Wrynn is coming, but does say their next hero is near: "our next new hero is also right around the corner. There are some theories floating around as to who’s next, but we have a few more releases before they’ll be ready to see the light of day." He also outlines goals for 2019, including more skins, more events, and a change to allow players greater flexibility to purchase whatever skins players desire, which will include the ability to use in-game gold. He also discusses previously revealed plans to improve game modes, saying an AMA to cover this topic will probably take place this month:

Let’s talk about features and systems. There’s been a lot of discussion both on the Heroes dev team and amongst our community regarding the state of Ranked Play, Quick Match, and matchmaking. The team’s made some decisions as a continuation of the plans we shared at BlizzCon and we have a schedule for a series of improvements we’ll be making across the next few patches and Ranked Seasons. Much like we did in our AMA’s last year, we’d like to have the developers responsible for those changes discuss these plans with you at our next Reddit AMA, tentatively planned for later this month. As part of that AMA, we’ll also dive into some thoughts surrounding our continued evolution of Quick Match and our upcoming completion of the Hero Role overhaul, so please join us for that discussion. We’ll share the upcoming Reddit AMA schedule soon!
