Hearthstone is currently in closed beta, and while Blizzard originally hoped to open it up this month, it has announced a delay.

Blizzard's announced at its BlizzCon conference that the game would enter open beta in December, but in a recent post on the Hearthsone website said that despite being very close to open beta readiness, it won't be available before the end of 2013.

There is good news, however. Blizzard is opening the door to allow more players into the closed beta. Everyone who opted in before December 16 should have received an e-mail invite. You can find out more about how to take part in Blizzard's online card game on its website.

Our Take
It wouldn't be a blizzard game without a delay, and in this new age of beta testing and early access, we get delays on non-final versions of games! We are truly living in the future.
