Blizzard will consider Warcraft 4 (RTS) once Starcarft 2 is done!

Blizzard has revealed its RTS team may indeed revisit the Warcraft franchise once the last chapter in the StarCraft II story is complete.

 
Speaking to IGN at Gamescom, StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void producer Tim Morten admitted that while the potential is certainly there for StarCraft III focusing on all-new characters, it's not the only option available to them.


"This isn’t the end of StarCraft, but it’s the end of this story for these characters," he said. "We don’t have any specific plans, but I’ll say that the universe has so much potential for more stories, clearly other stories could be told.
 
"It’s very rewarding for us to hear that there’s demand out there for more RTS content in the Warcraft universe so once we’re done with Void I think we’ll get together as a team and talk about what would inspire us to work on next. There’s no question, though, that we’ll consider Warcraft, StarCraft, or even new ideas. Anything is possible."
 
Though far from an airtight confirmation, it certainly seems Blizzard is keener on the idea than it once was. Until recently the company had asserted MMO World of Warcraft was the future of the franchise - it now seems we could see a new RTS after all.

Of course even if a full game doesn't materialise, it's not necessarily the end of the world. Heroes of the Storm game director Dustin Browder teased a new mode that could come to the company's MOBA in the future bearing similarities to the much-loved Warcraft III.

I really hope this happens and have been hoping for years. Warcraft 3 was the first game I got into "esports" with. I managed a pretty good amateur/semi-pro team for a couple of years and am still in contact with most of the guys. That's actually how I first heard of our former SC2 player vVv Murder (he wasn't on vVv at the time of course). 

 

Anyway, I hope this happens for sure. My favorite RTS of all time.

I remember playing Warcraft: Orcs vs Humans back when I was a kid with my dad haha. Graduated to WC2 then WC3 and The Frozen Throne. If this isn't bull**** I will be one happy man. Thanks Voison!

WarCraft 3 was one of the best RTS games ever made. IMO, it's more fun than SC2. I was having a discussion with a friend the other day on why I like WC3 more than SC2 and it basically revolved around what you do to gain advantage:

In WC3, your resource gathering is capped at each base for most races, so when you're ahead you build more combat units. When you're ahead in StarCraft 2, you build more workers or drop more bases. Can you guess which one is more fun to do than the other?

I really hope they make WC4 a thing.
