Blizzard is teasing its next Hearthstone expansion that will follow The Whispers of the Old Gods set, as the official Hearthstone Twitter is teasing something to do with Gadgetzan.
Yesterday afternoon, the official Hearthstone Twitter posted a teaser image that was a postcard-esque image that reads, “Greetings from Gadgetzan. It’s as clean as it is safe!”.

It’s likely that if you’re reading this, you already know what Gadgetzan is. But in case you’re not a World of Warcraft player, know that Gadgetzan is one of WoW‘s neutral goblin trading posts where both horde and alliance members can trade with each other.
What’s also interesting about Blizzard’s tease, though, is that the postcard image is surrounded by a super tiny wall of text around the image, which reads:
“The word “safe” is not meant to constitute a binding agreement and does not imply safety, security, protection, preservation, peace of mind, confidence, reliability, dependability or trustworthiness. Mayor Noggenfogger is not responsible for any accidents, surgeries, thoughtsteals, mind visions, hellfires, vanishes, whirlwinds, revenges, lightbombs, elemental destructions, excavated evils, consecrations, holy novas, flamestrikes, demonwraths, starfalls, shadowflames, swipes, explosive traps, arcane explosions, brawls, DOOM!s, lightning storms, blizzards, twisting nethers and other Acts of Old Gods, magical mayhem or disfigurement that may ensue. No beasts, demons, dragons, mechs, murlocs, pirates or totems were harmed, abused, disfigured, dismembered, declawed, detailed, decomissioned, exorcised, disarmed or toppled in the creation of this postcard. We take no responsibility on any claims made on this (souvenir?) of propaganda, or any predictions, suppositions, predictions, prophecies, harbingers, omens, portents, or conclusions that may arise.”
No official announcement of the Hearthstone Gadgetzan expansion has been made just yet, but the tease is enough to excite for now. It’s also worth noting that Blizzard recently purchased the Gadgetzan.com domain, as pointed out by a Reddit user. If this is indeed the case, we’d expect some goblin-themed cards to be featured in the upcoming expansion. With Hearthstone losing sight of a key demographic, we’re hoping to see the new expansion fix some of its issues.
