    They could just always make a prequel if they don't want to interfere with plot.

    From what they've said they won't make any more warcraft rts games while WoW is still going.

    id love to see a warcraft 4 on a sc2 type engine with sc2 graphics and such. would be pretty awesome but in reality as long as WoW is going i dont think we'll see a warcraft rts. seems like there would be too many conflcting issues with story and such

    I figure RTS versions of the WoW expansions could be interesting, and might clear up some lore since it is a different medium.

    Pretty sure Chris Metzen said they wont do WC4 until WoW is still alive

    So with best optimism we could say that WC4 will come 4-5 years AFTER WoW has died and it prob wont be anything good because i honestly dont see WC4 being anything at all after Blizzard has drained all the Warcraft story/lore for its expansions not to mention so much story/lore has been retconned that future stories would be incredibly stupid.

    But that requires alot of work, And WoW is still doing great for its age, so don't think we see a WC4 any time soon.
    Having 13 races would also be impossible to balance, unless they made all of them virtually the same (AoE-style)

    they really should go there. just wrap up wow with 2 new expansions, and then move Warcraft into, lets say, a 20 year forward cycle in the new game, with new characters, ones grown up now.

    I'd like a WC4 just because the WC4 map editor would be awesome and the custom games would be amazing. SC2 custom games are really awful compared to the WC3 Frozen Throne games, so I figure if there was a WC4 game out it would get some really great custom games as well. Time will tell I guess though, I'm not expecting a WC4 anytime soon, if ever at all.

    They made a friggin online spinoff card game they're coming out with that has featured booster pack purchases and their main MMO have several in-game cash-shop options - all in addition to the subscription.

    ...the real question is "WHEN is Warcraft IV coming out" than if it is coming at all. :P

    (((Yes, they can. All they have to do is tie it into an expansion of the same theme/time/enemies. Boom - storyline issues DONE!)))

    They could do that, they would just have to make sure that the story in WC4 isn't telling the same story in WoW at the same time. That way, you don't spoil anything. For example they could have MoP out and then have Warcraft 4 telling the story of the pandaren rebellion against the Mogu or Emperor Shaohao's story etc. It actually wouldn't be too bad of a way to add backstory to newly created lore.

    They would make way more money keeping WoW running then they would with a Warcraft 4. There is zero reason for them to shut WoW down in order to release a new RTS game especially considering they could just as easily keep WoW going and release another Starcraft RTS in it's place.

    I sooo wish for Wc4, if it's anything like Wc3. Sc2 doesn't cut it for me, wc3 was way more fun with heroes, micro-intense battles over macro. They could easily make an alliance race and a horde race. Perhaps demon, naga and faceless races? : O

    My only beef is that i'm afraid blizzard wouldn't make an epic storyline just because they'd rather keep it for WoW... The return of the legion could make another great sequel, although that's a bit overdone... making the war vs the faceless/old gods and their naga minions/azshara could be interesting, but i think everyone is expecting that for WoW.

    I think that we will see it eventually, but not for quite a long time

    Would be kinda cool to see it based on the Caverns of Time so they don't have to worry about it affecting WoW.

    I'd prefer they finish WoW before making Warcraft 4. Warcraft 4 would make radical changes to the story and progress a lot further and faster than they do in WoW. Plus it would be a nice segway into WoW 2.

    Blizzard acknowledged that when Starcraft 2 was being created that Warcraft next game would be designed in the same way with individual campaigns being done per expansion. Will we get Warcraft 4......it will most likely be the next game that the Starcraft 2 team works on after they are done with the current game.

    Not end WoW for Warcraft 4, but end WoW in terms of storyline and progression respectably without pushing any further than it needs to be. I mean, I doubt barely anyone here would want them to let WoW become totally and utterly tragic and then end it. It's plausible for them to work on Warcraft 4 whilst WoW is at its end, release it and work on a second WoW whilst Warcraft 4 is going through it's development and releasing it after Warcraft 4 is done.

    It would be better that way, as who would really want a giant break until Warcraft 4 and then another giant break until a full updated version of WoW is released.

    As long as WoW remains so successful I see no way to make WC4 fit in the story as much as I would love there to be one. Unless theres a WoW2 planned I could see a WC4 as the set up to the next game but otherwise doesn't fit.

    The only thing i liked about the Warcraft games was the Story.
    The gameplay was pretty boring...

    I hope they continuing to focus just on WoW.
