Get your pitchforks ready just in case.
Reforged was abandoned by Blizzard. There is no news. It's really disappointing.
What an absolute PR-talk cringefest lmao.
Overwatch 2 fans on suicide watch.
Diablo 2 resurrected looks cool.
Its good they abandoned Reforged cz we want a wc3 remaster and Reforged was never supposed to be a remaster as it was a Wowified wc3.
I'm pretty resistant to cringe, but J.A. Brack and the WoW guy were just too much The only one that did a decent job was Luis Barriga from the D4 team.
But then, Diablo was by far the most interesting part of the ceremony. Rogue cinematics and gameplay were great. Diablo 2: Resurrected looks promising, hopefully they don't screw it up like they did Reforged. And then... Immortal is supposedly quite good, so there's that.
Classic TBC is cool too, but the rest of the WoW/Hearthstone stuff was pretty meh.
It was so cringe to see J. Allan Brack avoid the mentioning of Reforged. We need some MUCH NEEDED reassurance that the are working to fix Reforged (FPS issues) and add the missing features like Custom Campaigns. It's really frustrating. The silence was deafening. My stomach started aching. The recent dismantling of the Warcraft 3 Reforged team didn't help. We don't even know who is working on Reforged atm. Our contacts in Blizzard don't even work on Reforged anymore.
Really excited for Diablo 2 Resurrected, though.
I think they are deleting messages again in Blizzard W3R Forum? or is it my imagination?
The whiplash of tone between your paragraph and that last sentence reminded me of the whiplash between the WoW:Shadowlands Patch trailer and stuff and them then talking about Pet Charities will joyful music played in the background.
I like the look of D2 resurrected. I think they learned something from the disastrous rollout of Reforged. (I hope) they are not changing the original game, this is something separate. What a novel idea...
Rhykker asked Resurrected devs what lessons they learned from Reforged and the biggest take away was how the old game was handled, i.e. that if you didn't like the remaster, you couldn't go back to the original. Because of that, they are not bringing down the original Diablo 2 to launch Resurrected.
Don't watch the video with your hopes up, they didn't say anything else about Reforged.
P.S. I started laughing when they said that D4 will have a lot of mounts with lots of cool gear and the chat started spamming "Horse DLC confirmed" So true
such a shame that the one game they decided to completely change for no reason was reforged (plus cinematics weren't remade unlike this one...) And yes they hard avoided even MENTIONING warcraft 3 reforged, so cringe.
Not a lick for anything regarding the future of warcraft 3.
Short recap (I'll bold the highlights for me):
WoW Classic TBC announced;
WoW 9.1 announced, Anduin becomes evil and kills the leader of the Ange....uhm..Kyrians;
Hearthstone new Barrens expansion announced, didn't listen, couldn't care less about Hearthstone tbf;
Diablo 2 Ressurected announced;
Diablo 4 new class, the Rogue, announced;
Diablo Immortal, nothing really;
Overwatch 2 a few shots of new maps and four new hero models, some updates, but again nothing really;
Warcraft 3 Reforged, Heroes of the Storm and Starcraft not even mentioned;
The worst part is that they also did that for Starcraft 1, so it's not like they didn't know about this
3:54 in the video: Oh, they're completely remaking the cinematics. Sounds awfully familiar...
Well I don't think they could be so stupid to pull another Reforged a second time so this time it's probably real...
They are stressing that it's "remaking with new art" rather than upscaling, so I'm optimistic. Would be nice to get a tease, though.
Didn't you hear brack talking about WaRCrAfT THreE CyBERsPorTS?
