    They're considering it after SC II third expansion.
    This is also a news article that is over 4 years ago. I could see them making a MOBA with Heroes from the Warcraft universe in it.

Warcraft 4 is destined to be a success if it ever gets released, because it has the name Warcraft on it, the exact same reason that WoW's launch was successful. The "Warcraft" name is very powerful, it is like a money magnet.

    Anyways, for the on-topic discussion: I'd personally prefer that a Warcraft 4 would be released AFTER WoW has taken its toll, to not cause any conflict in lore. Plus, Blizzard would probably like to milk SC2 completely before releasing another RTS. A Warcraft 4 with an enhanced version of the old World Editor would be a dream come true for me.
    SC2's editor is actually very powerful much more so than WC3's but it's very hard to use. That's what I heard from almost all mapmakers out there.

    I was initially cynnical about how well starcraft 2 would turn out, but they demonstrated they were able to churn out a good rts still.. as far as WC4 goes, I'd absolutely love to see that happen to add some continuation, and possibly some "closure" to the story side of it (setting aside the brilliant multiplayer) as alots happenned in the years since the events of wc3

    Traditional competition in the rts genre (ea/cnc) has gone down the toilet, and despite sc2's success I definatly believe there is room out there for a new wc rts.. after all, RTS is not a "1 size fits all", people have different preferences in the style/environment of it.. which is a big part why blizz enjoyed a double success with starcraft alongside the original wc games.

    Maintain the quality, theres a couple things which could be slightly "modernized"
    Stick to what works, if its not broke don't fix it, and you are good to go!

    Hope it happens

    There's a shitton of lore that Blizzard has mentioned, but never went into full detail about, such as the war of three hammers, the founding of quel'thalas, and the like. I'd say it's a possibility that it could be a prequel (though that'd also mean no orcs). Having one late into the future just closes off so much in terms of the possibility in WoW.

    One can only hope it'll see the light, I've always been a Warcraft fan. I say they'll focus on it after SC2 is done with it's expansions, I just don't know how they'll make the lore work with WoW still on the market.

    They could actually treat the novels in the game. Since, think about it, they can't make Tyrande and the night elf army fighting the Horde army in Ashenvale in WoW, or can't make the Grimtotem taking Thunder Bluff or Garrosh attacking Theramore before the bomb or stuff like this.

    Yes, this is true. I saw some people managing to make even a sort of Alextrazsa adventure RPG map in there, but it's hard to make even regular stuff, so they probably worked their asses.

    My guess, if Warcraft IV happened it would either be concurrent with the current timeline of its release and used to set up plot hooks for the MMO (with matching storylines in the MMORPG), or set in the future far enough to give a general reset to things and being intentionally mum on history after whatever the current MMO storyline is to avoid spoilers.

    That's why you explore such things in WoW itself, but you don't need to hamstring the RTS by trying to make it join up with WoW lore. Setting it in the future frees you from such constraints, and WoW can have a lot of fun 'filling in the gaps' as it were.

    future is unlikely. it would either be a tie in like the novels or it would be set in the past.

    I'd say you're part of the .1% who played it for the story line. The rest of the 1% probably played skirmishes vs bots, or played the campaign for fun.
    What I'm saying is that Warcraft was so majorly popular because of costum maps, and that throne has been taken by another title.

    You know, I remembered something, Spellforce franchise. You had a hero, which you could control RPG style, you had lots of different armor and whatnot, but some maps (about 1 in 2) had also RTS, you had base-building and such. Would be something if they made something similar with Warcraft 4, put more importance on the heroes then before even.

    Overall, I played Warcraft 3 for the story and hope Warcraft 4 will have a story at least as good.
    Yeah the guys who played dota probably played vampire hunters aswell... and Utherparty. The point is, as I said before, the game thrived on the costum maps.

    your wrong about that. sure the first two warcraft games youd be right about but warcraft 3 had a huge following of people who loved the lore. why do you think pandaren were the most asked for race?

    I believe the number of people who played Warcraft 1 and 2 is negligible to the amount of people who played Warcraft 3.
    I'm pretty sure most people knew (I'm actually 100% sure) the Pandaren because of Dota's brewmaster.

    Setting it in the future puts constraints on WoW, on the other hand. Having it concurrent might be the least restrictive option. Maybe a two-front war, with one front in WoW and the other in WC4.

    I've always thought that a possible War IV could be set during the WoW timeline (any part would do) but about a story that wasn't shown in WoW. It is at the end of the RTS when the story becomes relevant (or even is the setting itself) of the following WoW expansion.

    Quite possible,
    Could possible see campaigns or the like named "Heroes of Warcraft", "Heroes of Starcraft", and "Heroes of Diablo" or something similar.

    I think the brewmaster was introduced in in WCIII before he was added into one of the custom games.

    This is kinda what I'm leaning towards. They wanted to make sure they owned the domain related to their game and with a name like Heroes of Warcraft, it could likely be the name used for their DOTA variant they had been working on. It would definitely need its own website for people to get info from...

    Warcraft IV can happen about events which is going now with WoW. From WOTLK to MoP. and expansions will cover future ^_^

    i could potentially see wow ending soon maybe 2-3 expansions ending with the defeat of the legion. Warcraft 4 could take on the story of finding the fallen titan Sargaras and the return of the titans. the game could deal with several issues still lingering with the horde and Alliance but also the remnants of the legion. Theres alot of worlds out there to build a story around, such as bringing planets taken by the legion, gaining control and returning the planet to a better state. It could also have historical campains which take you into wows events, possible even warcraft-warcraft 3 era again.

    Factions: Horde-Alliance-Scourge-Legion-Naga-Zandalari-Old god
    Historical maps include-Battle for mount Hyjal( play as 1 of 2 factions-Defenders of hyjal Vs Legion)-War of the Ancients(Kalandori resistance Vs the legion)-Fall of the lich king( Argent Dawn Vs The Scourge) and so on.
    The campaign takes on the view points of the Horde or Alliance and deals with the other factions along with the titans and whatever else is out in space.

    This could then lead into a wow 2, where we finally deal with Sargaras. This would give blizz time to develop new villans and heroes through the RTS to then bring into the newer version of wow.
