Blizzard Ends World of Warcraft Trading Card Game

No more new booster packs to rip through. But you'll just have to get behind Hearthstone then.

After seven years, Blizzard has decided to halt production on new sets and cards for its World of Warcraft

Trading Card Game. In a post on the official site, the company said that Set 21 Timewalkers: Reign of Fire was the last batch of packs.

There will no longer be any official tournaments hosted by Blizzard or card-maker Crytozoic, but fans can continue to hold their own tournaments as long as they follow the official tournament guidelines. Also, if you have any unredeemed loot cards, you can still cash them in at the official site.

"We are grateful for being able to collaborate with the artists and everyone else who helped make this game a reality all these years," the company said in a final note to fans. "We're also thankful for all the players and retailers who've participated in the community globally. You made ripping open booster packs, discovering the wonders they held, and then building decks and taking them into battle a truly awesome experience."

Blizzard said it currently has no plans to renew the TCG license with another company. Of course, Blizzard is developing Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft for PC, so having two trading card games, even if one is purely computerized doesn't make sense. It will be interesting to see if Blizzard creates a tabletop version of Hearthstone for those who want a tangible deck to play with.
