I wonder which playable factions we would get then. I hope they atleast stick with human, orc, undead and night elf.
WC4's possibility is close to zero. Not because of WoW but because it's stupid right now to make another RTS game. SC2 is the fastest selling RTS game of all time and you know what? Its sell doesn't even come close to WoW and D3. RTS's market is just not big enough anymore. SC2 is an incredible game but it's just too hard for people to play. It's popular but compare to something like WoW or LoL it's not. RTS's market today has transformed into MOBA for casual gamers.
If Wc4 would happen, and it'll be as good as Wc3, I'll stop playing WoW.
I wouldn't want to play another Warcraft RTS. I'd like to see some new immesrive gaming strategy. RTS is an old/outdated gaming platform. I don't think there is enough of an RTS market to justify developing one that will have the level of hype that a new Warcraft RTS would bring. Just my opinion.
If they make WC4 it needs a new, strong theme to it that isn't rehashed scourge.
Yeah Star Craft and WoW is kinda in the way. Would be dumb competeting your own RTS and esport.
I think Warcraft 4 will happen at some point hell could lead to WoW 2 ( assuming titan flops its not rare to see MMO's just add a 2 to their games)
If it has a World Editor that's just an enhanced version of the Warcraft 3 World Editor, and not some kind of mess like Starcraft 2's Galaxy Editor or w/e it was called, then yeah I'd love it. Otherwise, nope, WoW provides many more hours of entertainment than a few campaigns.
Well at the start of WoW vanilla it states that '10 years has passed' they could easily do WC4 based on them 10 years
I want to wait at least 3 more years before any sort of Warcraft 4 news. Reasons being that SC2 still has at least that much more time of development before the team would start work on something new. I would expect it somewhere around 7 years before it would actually be out, and it will look more like a current high-res game in RTS form. Think of something like battlefield 4's graphics in RTS form, with Blizzard's classic stylized graphics. Or even something like EQNext's graphics style in a new form RTS.
I would love to see destructible terrain in a Warcraft 4 as well. RTS like Dawn of War and Company of Heroes already have destructible buildings, I think it would add a lot of depth to Warcraft with it too. It could play more into the environment and strategy, since it's not as 'chess' like as Starcraft series. Shape the battlefield to your advantage. Landscape shaping could even be themed with Shamanism, Druidism, Necromancy and Engineering.
I recently just played warcraft1(ugh, it was really old but i did go all the way through it) wacraftII beyond the dark portal - nice to see the red lands of draenor rather greenish and a lot of sea battles....unlike it is the case in outland , now i am on warcraftIII, really a masterpiece.
Really enjoyed the bloodshet and radical story lines with a lot of casuallities with a darker theme.
After 11 years of waiting since wacraftIII came out, i am more than ready for wacraftIV - Azeroth got stale, due of wow being an mmo game and how it is all handled by raids.
btw, i want to point out that the RTS wacraft lead designers and wow lead designers are totally different people, the wow lead designers are merely recruited from ultima online and everquest.
So no surprise that we never got a real war after wacraft3 and i am not sure how much original story related persons as metzen design actually some content. Seems they are just supverising and managing the business the warcraft franchise did become overtime.
Wacraft is pretty old, though rooting from the early/mid 90ies.
This video is for you to remember of the good old times:
I even prefere the wc3 Arthas....in wotlk he seems a bit silly with his helmet and ridiculous speeches(instead of a coldhearted kill) like the spaceball vader guy, if you think about it.
- - - Updated - - -
haha, now that we think about it, those rectons can have a good use too, that i have hated for so many years:
Metzen and Co could just retcon everything happened after the frozen throne expansion when it comes of designing wow IV.
oh, yeah this means Kael, Illidan and Arthas never died.

Been waiting for years, I want an updated world editor so I can continue to make custom games damn it. >.<
And no Starcraft won't do, I prefer the Warcraft theme.
I wish someone would just do a warcraft rip off but revert it to TBC times gameplay. I would honestly love to see which would win.
What makes you think it is gonna happen? Every bit of the universe and the story progresses through WoW, ergo there is no need to have a RTS successor.
