Blizzard presently have quite a few tasks within the pipeline, however as of proper now none of these tasks are Warcraft 4. Despite the keen response to the announcement of Warcraft III: Reforged, a full remaster of the final game within the sequence, the studio say they “don’t have any plans” for a fourth game within the long-running RTS sequence – though there may be the chance it could occur sooner or later.
This was revealed in an interview with Blizzard senior producer Pete Stilwell at GameSpot. He mentioned, “I wouldn’t rule anything out, but we don’t have any plans around [Warcraft IV] at this point.”
He provides that the studio’s present focus is on the remaster of Warcraft III, which is present due out subsequent 12 months. “Getting [Warcraft III: Reforged] right, I think, is our priority first and foremost,” he says. You can take a look at the interview at GameSpot right here.
The final feedback we noticed from Blizzard concerning Warcraft IV was Blizzard CEO Mike Morhaime stating that he “would love to see Warcraft IV at some point,” and that was two years ago, so we actually don’t count on to see one other correct numbered Warcraft any time quickly.
Warcraft III: Reforged, alternatively, is due out in 2019. The new model of the game options absolutely remodelled characters and animations, remastered maps and campaigns, an upgraded UI and world editor, and 4K resolutions. It’s apparently contained “orders of magnitude” extra work than Starcraft: Remastered, with a number of years of growth time.
It was actually obtained quite a bit higher at Blizzcon than Diablo Immortal, the cellular spin-off of Blizzard’s Diablo sequence that the studio ill-advisedly selected to finish the present with rather than a tease of Diablo 4. The studio actually doesn’t appear to have a lot luck with their fourth numbered sequels.
