Hearthstone production director Jason Chayes posted on the Battle.net that while Blizzard is "very close" launching the open beta, it will arrive in January.
"We believe the right thing to do for the game is to not rush it out into open beta, but to instead hold onto it a little longer to make sure it's ready for wider testing," he explained. "At BlizzCon, we mentioned that we hoped to get the game into a state where it's ready for open beta this month, but we're just not quite there yet.
"The development team has been working hard to get this out before the end of the year, but our highest priority is that Hearthstone has an awesome launch when all gates are lifted and everyone can download it and play at the same time."
As such, to opt in for the closed beta, you know have until January 7th. If you want to do so, you can here.
So it's really not that much longer to wait for the beta. This just gives you all more time to share in holiday festivities with your family, which I know is high on everyone's priority list.
