The time has come for a new Hearthstone expansion and Blizzard appears to be building hype ahead of its announcement.

Earlier this week a video was uploaded to the Hearthstone YouTube page that features a familiar face.

The keen-eyed among you might recognise the Fortune Teller as the same character that introduced the Whispers of the Old Gods expansion.

Of particular interest is the line “We be calling a team in, the masters of plotting and scheming”. This, coupled with the visual of the candles, gold and King Togwaggle’s crown have led many to believe we might be seeing Kobolds again in the next expansion.

We should also point out that Blizzard revealed last week that the narrative for expansions in the Year of the Dragon will follow on from each other.

Will we be seeing Kobolds? Perhaps the Old Gods are not yet done with Azeroth? Right now all we can do is speculate on what we might see.

As to when we’ll receive more news, that’s anybody’s guess though we suspect we’ll learn more soon.
