    Sure they can, will they ? no.

    Ofcourse they can, and ofcourse they won't. There is simply not enough money to be made which is why it was being neglected in the first place. Maybe if the RTS genre makes a huge comeback at some point, but even then they might just make another Starcraft instead.

    As of now we know that Blizzard is making some Warcraft mobile games, its probably going to be their alternative of making new RTS games.

    What for, do you expect them to make a completely new game? Or pehaps you think if they redo the cinematics it would somehow make it 10000% better game?

    I mean missing features are one thing, but at the core it would be essentially the same game as it is now.

    They could but they wont. Having integrity and making good products is bad for business apparently.

  5. #25
    Obviously they can. The chance that they want is close to zero, I assume.

    In the grand scheme of things, obviously companies and employees aren't infallible, but there's very little they can't do.

    They could make WoW an amazing MMO again, and they could remake WC3 Reforged

    But they won't.

    So much this. D2 has already been confirmed not to have ladders when the game releases and that it'll be released later. It's very, very reminiscent of WC3 reforged

    Can? Yes.

    Will? Absolutely not. Why would they? Waste of money.

    the art was definitely off, but i was on board because i thought it'd be kind of cool to see warcraft in a different art style

    if only the people they outsourced to design it werent completely oblivious to very obvious crucial RTS fundamentals like distinguishable silhouettes

    and, y'know, the inability to go beyond 30 FPS and all.

    Is this possible? Is there even a 5 percent chance?
    They probably didn't want to make WC3:R in the first place, remaking a remake is not profitable enough for them. Chances are on the negative side.

    I mean, they could, but I'd wager there would be no one around to buy it.

    If they didn't do a lot of the post launch shit this would of just been a crappy remaster that everyone just kinda shrugged off like the XBOX Conker's Bad Fur Day or the 3DS Zelda games

    but they broke the cardinal rule and fucked with the original.

    Even if WC3 isn't that popular Blizzard could save some face by putting the team from D2R on the Reforged mess and get them to fix it just to show people they actually give a fuck, but they won't.

    Can: Yes, they have the right to do it.

    Will they: No, they won't.

    Actually i think that they won't do anything, because they want the Reforged-desaster to be forgotten.

    Blizzard apparently made a ton of money on preorders that it made executives scared of pushing back the date and having to potentially allow refunds. If they didn't get a ton of pre-orders, executives wouldn't have been that spooked. What executives didn't realize is that they would have to refund the game anyway.

    It did not look good at all what so ever at first. First images and videos they had did not capture the visual essence of what made Warcraft III so appealing.

    It's not like if wouldn't be profitable, giving Warcraft III proper remaster would be huuuge boost to reputation for new bosses. And reputation is what Blizzard currently desperately needs.

    Also all remasters are done - Starcraft, WIII (kinda) and now DII. Rest either doesn't need remaster or it was done through GoG.

    No realistic hopes on this one.

    I've literally refunded twice now; first on preorder when we all got signs of it being shit, and second time when I jumped into modding and rebought for the sake of modding, and then the Bloomberg article came out and I couldn't even keep the game without feeling uncomfortable about the whole situation.

    It's all on Blizzard to rectify their mistake, or simple leave it as is. I'm not holding my breath.

    This. I don't think even restoring it to basic "WC3 functionality" would suddenly get people buying WC:R again. Sure it'd save some face, but honestly there isn't much noise about reforged anymore outside of when other bad things happen at blizz. They'd have to go all out to create a totally revamped experience which is a huge gamble.

    While the new models had silhouete issues and their style was kinda iffy for some, I do have to say the amount of work that went into those was admirable. Unlike the original, they didn't just color swap minor variants of models, but rather made each individual creep model unique and different.
