Heroes of the Storm takes the best characters from all of Blizzard's franchises and puts them in one game. The next hero they're putting in is from StarCraft, one of Blizzard’s oldest franchises. On Wednesday, the Heroes of the Storm’s official Twitter page posted a hint that clearly points to Alexei Stukov: The image in the tweet describes a medical report that relates to Stukov's origin story.

Following that post and resulting speculation, Heroes of the Storm also tweeted a clear announcement post. I don't think any classic Blizzard fans will be disappointed to find out Stukov will be joining the ranks of Heroes of the Storm.
