Alexstrasza and Hanzo will be unveiled at this year's BlizzCon!

In one of the "Resurrecting Kel'Thuzad" videos, Blizzard accidentally revealed both Alexstrasza and Hanzo. Apparently, the Chinese Heroes of the Storm website contained Hero teasers ahead of BlizzCon that have now been removed.

@t3ramosalso posted a 4chan leak that suggests Franko Tildon from StarCraft II will be portrayed as a potential third Hero in an upcoming reveal cinematic at BlizzCon.

That's reason they added widow's skin for nova

and if they want to add widow they wouldn't add her this early

By the way I'm happy that they are adding more overwatch heroes. So ..soon we would have *play as overwatch hero* as daily quest.. they are trying to make overwatch characters as many as Diablo and starcraft has..

and I'm so happy that they are going to add alextrasza can't wait to see her abilities

Well, I can understand them adding Hanzo and Alexstrasza together to fit this dragon motif, which is cool. Makes more sense than adding Firebat (although I really wanna see him in the game).

But man. Hanzo is going to be one of those "cancer" characters, like Tracer and Genji. Very annoying and slippery to deal with.

However, I'm overhyped about Alexstrasza. I really really hope she is a Support. I mean, she is the LIFE-BINDER, after all.

Hanzo doesn't excite me from a fluff perspective but I honestly like the design of the Overwatch heroes gameplay wise to here's so hoping they get another good one out of him.

Alex though?  Holly cow I'm excited to see her.  I want to play her badly.  *Shiver*

I hope that leak is correct. Ive been hoping for another multi-class character for some time. It bothers me that the multiclass column of the stats screen is a Varian specific column. I was kinda hoping/expecting her to be a support/warrior though not an assassin

Getting Alex finally is nice, and to be honest, the other hero had to be from OW franchise because Blizzards current policy of bringing a decent amount of OW heroes to the game to attract people from OW. But still, why it had to be Hanzo out of all the possible heroes, as he is arguably most hated hero in the game. Still because how differently balanced damage and max hp wise OW and HotS are, I have hope that Hanzo isn't going to be the toxic piece of s*** he is in OW and can actually be made into fairly enjoyable hero. Still waiting for that actual main tank from OW to HotS... Hopefully Firebat will still be released pretty soon, as I'm personally super excited for what his concept is going to be, what kind of auto attack and ability animations will there be to represent the flamethrower. Probably something like what they did with Junkrat and Genji with having auto attack and Q have similiar animation and damage, maybe another hero with non mana resource like energy? We shall see...

Don't understand the hate towards Overwatch characters. I mean yeah; they're fundamentally different but none of the bullshit from Overwatch comes over to HoTs(Tracer doesn't have Recall heal until lv20, Genji isn't impossible to hit, no double mine from Junkrat, Dva's DM and her *Bang*) and I sincerely doubt he'll be able to one-shot scatter. At least play him before bashing him even when his release hasn't been confirmed yet. He's not gonna be that bad like...

How long ago was it that people were complaining about there being too many Warcraft characters? And now it's complaining about Overwatch characters while being happy there's a new Warcraft character... Is complaining about things without any real reason some kind of fashion tendency?

Well I'm not too much of a fan of adding the Overwatch characters in HotS either, since Overwatch's lore is much less developped than in other Blizzard games but, hey, no one complained about the Viking Brothers(at least not that I saw) so why not. Also Blizzard has all rights since they're making the game, if they want to add... I don't know... a chicken that fires laser from it's eyes, shits bombs and can flap it's wings so hard it makes wind, then they can, even if I don't agree.

Alexstrasza is one of my favorite Warcraft characters. Putting her in the game, not even knowing her abilities and I am like "well, if I ever mained a hero THIS would be it." Not a fan of Hanzo, but I get it. Where there is one Shimada brother, you must have the other. It's like... they are Blizzard's version of the Mario bros. or something.

Multiclass?! I thought they were on the brink of removing the whole category from the game. Apparently not then. Firebat seems cool and I also do love a multiclass character being added. It's just, if we're only going to get a multiclass hero once a year during Blizzcon, you could just make them regular heroes. And holy cow, a Raynor rework! I was hoping that the boost to his healing out of the blue was  a sign for things to come, but I never thought it would come so fast. Time to put juke on again, boys, and you know the song!

I really want Firebat, although I was personally hoping for Gui, it's not that big of a deal.

Smoking a cigar in his suit... aww yea.

As you see warcraft has more characters and in paSt people were angry about this...but i say They had and have to add more warcraft characters anytime and also more ow for this period ..why?

1.warcraft is main thing of blizzard:Dn most of people know blizzard because of warcraft that's reason they made warcraft 1,2,3 and wow series and hearthstone and warcraft movie so of course it shold have more characters

2.because warcraft has many many many characters than other games

3.only warcraft(and a bit diablo) got enough variety of having melee/ranged/supports/assassins(which has much more variety like mages/attack damage and speed and finishers)/tanks/specs

and as you see blizzard barely adds variety of characters for starcraft because starcraft hasn't much melee and specially TANKS! and not much characters so that we see they try to add starcraft characters with bringing more campaigns(what we saw about arthanis) or adding unknown characters like hammer or prob or mora so I'm sure adding ow characters with a few lore is better than adding characters without any lore

4. And about ow characters... they should be added more but in short period because they are few and new to hots but after a while blizzard should stop adding them this fast because most of them are ranged and they don't have much variety of classes( as you see most of them are seeming like what they are for a shooter game like ow not moba games. I mean you just see shooting levels(Q ability* of junkrat genji ana zarya and very very speedy characters(lucio and ofcourse tracer)

      Alan Dabiri announced that he's leaving his current position as Game Director for Heroes of the Storm and he's moving on to another project at Blizzard.
      Alan Dabiri has been Game Director ever since Dustin Browder stepped down in December 2016. He thinks the game is in the right hands right now, as developers continue to deliver interesting new Heroes and events. He's transitioning to a new team within the company. We wish him success in all his future endeavors.
      Here's the message he left on the official forums:
      Blizzard (Source)
      In my 20-plus years at Blizzard, I’ve had the privilege of working on many awesome Blizzard games in roles ranging from software engineer to technical director to game director. Across my many roles and games, my experience working on Heroes of the Storm ranks among the best of my development career. I’ve witnessed Heroes’ evolution from a StarCraft II mod to the amazing game you see today. Heroes’ development has been fueled by the shared excitement of our team and all of you in the community, and the game we’ve built together is the game I play almost every night.
      One of the best things about developing Heroes is the fact that this team is not afraid to try new things while always striving to learn and grow. It’s been part of our DNA from the very beginning, and it’s through years of experimentation that we’ve hit our stride both as a development team, and as a game. This is possible because Heroes has an exceptional development team of both Blizzard veterans and fresh faces who are all highly engaged with the game we’re making, and the players we’re making it for.
      It’s in this spirit of trying new things that I want to let everyone know that a few months ago, I accepted an opportunity to transition off my role as Heroes’ game director to heed Blizzard’s call and begin a new adventure elsewhere within the company. The game director has always been one part of the overall leadership team that drives Heroes forward and it’s been a privilege to work among some of the best game developers at every level on the team all the way up to our production director, Kaéo Milker. Leaving a team and game that I love is incredibly difficult, but seeing the steady strength, creativity, and commitment that Kaéo and the design, engineering, and art leadership teams consistently bring to Heroes has given me more than enough confidence to make this decision. I trust that the game is in the very best hands and their work these past few months has only reinforced my belief.
      They’ve released awesome new heroes like Yrel, Whitemane, Mephisto, and now Mal’Ganis, while building on the themed content drops that let the team do fun things that only Heroes can do. They brought the smackdown (plus my favorite mount, the Luchihuahua!) with Nexomania, finally brought an epic slice of Azeroth into the Nexus with the Alterac Pass Battleground, and joined the Raven Lord’s forces with the Fall of King’s Crest. On top of that, the team has also released awesome reworks like Raynor and Brightwing while adding exciting updates like third ban and Team League improvements. With so many awesome content and feature updates, you can see why I believe that the team has brought us the best year of Heroes of the Storm so far.
      And they’re not done yet. Heroes has one of the most passionate and dedicated development teams I’ve had the pleasure of working with, and they have a ton of exciting new content in development. I can’t wait for you all to see what they have in store for the rest of this year and beyond. You can bet that I’ll be right there enjoying it with you as it’s released, too. I’m sure you’ll agree when I say that Heroes is in a great place and I promise that it’s in the hands of the best possible people to continue driving it forward. Kaéo and the Heroes team are people who play almost every night who also happen to get to work on making the game what it is today. With our continued input and support, they’ll keep doing what they do best by making Heroes of the Storm the most awesome game it can possibly be.
      I just want to sign off by saying thank you to all of you. I’ve had an incredible time working on this game and seeing you bring the battlegrounds to life every day. I’m so grateful for the enthusiasm you’ve brought to Heroes and all the changes you’ve encouraged us to make. I know the team deeply appreciates the feedback you share, so please keep it coming—and as always, I’ll see you in the Nexus!
