‘Whisper Of The Old Gods’ Wall Painting Looks Like Some Kind Of Pretty Game Announcement

Normally, we’d file game-related art under “gamer culture.” But a wall painting discovered in Brooklyn, New York, isn’t a fan creation. It appears to be an advertisement for an upcoming game announcement.

We suspect that this is a game, because of the ESRB Teen rating in the lower-left corner. The stylization hints that this might be connected to Hearthstone, as it resembles other expansion art (see below).  Blizzard also says there will be an announcement about the game this week.

We’ve reached out to Blizzard for information on whether this is indeed one of their games. We’ll update should we receive a response.

Our Take
There isn’t enough here to draw a straight line between this art and Hearthstone. Yes, there seem to be similarities, but to call it a guarantee seems premature. The ESRB logo does suggest it is a game, though.
