More Heroes of the Storm characters are in development, but no more original heroes for now

More Heroes of the Storm characters are in development, but no more original heroes for now

Qhira joined the Heroes of the Storm roster earlier this month, and followed up Orphea to become the second original character among the lineup of classic faces in the Blizzard multiverse. Don’t expect these Nexus-born heroes to exclusively dominate the future of the game, though – there are plenty of familiar Blizzard coming in the near term.

“The overall response to Qhira has been very positive,” lead game designer Brett Crawford tells us. He adds that “we expected to receive some critical feedback for releasing her over an iconic Hero, but at the end of the day, the team felt it was the right time for Qhira to enter the Nexus.”

With that in mind, Crawford says “we do hear that feedback and understand the passionate players that are patiently waiting for their favorite Hero to find their way to Heroes of the Storm; I promise they won’t be disappointed. We have multiple Heroes in development from your favorite Blizzard games.”
