It’s the announcement… of the announcement. It started when game designer Dave Kosak tweeted that he’d be going on a camping trip to “get his creative Hearthstone juices flowing:”

And then game director Ben Brode responded with this:
Have fun! Bring the expansion back soon! We're supposed to announce it this month! https://t.co/e3NdJL4Cx9

Blizzard has been fairly consistent with their Hearthstone expansion release dates (a triad of the months of December, August and April) so March is month where the first new expansion usually sees its announcement. Over/under on if we’ll get the announcement before St. Patrick’s Day?
