    Warcraft 4 possibilty?

    I was searching the internet and found this on VGB:

    Blizzard’s VP of game design, Rob Pardo, was asked about the possibility of the developer creating the next Warcraft 4 real-time strategy (RTS) game in the popular series. While the MMORPG World of Warcraft has over 10 million subscribers, the franchise started out in the RTS genre, so will it be returning to its RTS roots? In an interview from last year he answered:

    “Yeah, of course there’s a chance,” he confirmed. “The way that we develop things, each time a development team becomes available, because they’re done with creating the games that they’ve been doing, they have a lot of say over what their next game is. So what it would take is for one of our teams to decide that they want to make Warcraft RTS and of course, there’ll be some talk about doing that and I’m sure after StarCraft 2 ships, it will be one the ideas on the table for that team to do, but that’s pretty far off in the future and it would really be determined by a combination of the dev team and the company leadership.”

    Mr. Pardo continued: “I think that one of the things that makes us ultimately successful as a company is that we’re more lead by our game-making decisions and not so much by business decisions, which is one of the reasons why this question used to be the StarCraft question. Back when we did StarCraft, we did Brood War, and everyone thought they were amazing games; they were successful and I used to get all these questions like, “Why are you doing another Warcraft RTS, shouldn’t you be doing StarCraft?” Well Warcraft was what the team wanted to make, they were burned out on the StarCraft universe, that was the game they wanted to make and as far as Warcraft goes, we love the universe – it’s an amazingly successful universe. If we want to go back and do it, maybe we will, maybe we won’t.”

    But then again, it could be a stupid rumor some cheapskate made up to get us all excited, which wouldn't surprise me as this was from June 15 of 2008.

    Here's the page just to prove it: http://www.videogamesblogger.com/2008/06/15/warcraft-4-release-far-in-the-future.htm

    What do you want in Warcraft 4?

    I haven't seen a thread talk about this yet, but than again I haven't been here in a while. What do you want in Warcraft 4? Please, this isn't about what story you want, so don't talk about that. What are some things you want to see in Warcraft 4, like gameplay, graphics wise, Map editor wise... Yea, we got quite a while before the game comes out but, hey, it gives us plenty of time to think of what we want in WC4.

    1. I would like to see a faster paced action game that still revolves around heroes.
    2. The same 4 factions from WC3.
    3. I would like them to add another faction with each expansion.
    4. Two expansions.
    5. Naval Warfare.
    6. A better and more simple Map Editor which is expected.
    7. Darker tone- story and graphics wise, yet I doubt they will do that, so I'm not counting on it.
    8. A Market system kind of like Age of Empires.
    9. Random generated terrain which includes trees..., in the Editor for people who are lazy, like me, sometimes.
    10. I would like to see trees or mushrooms as something that is added with the terrain like it was in WC2 instead of it being a doodad. It would make things easier that way. However, I would still like to have trees be a doodad as well.
    11. Decals or logos, like what they're doing for SC2.
    12. A Higher cap, however, not as high as SC2 or it kind of takes the whole point of heroes away.
    13. More team colors to choose from including black and white.

    Well, thats all I got so far. What do you guys want?

    What makes you think it won't happen? Of course it will happen, just not until they finish the last part of the SC2 trilogy. But really, what do you want to see in WC4?

    WoW will eventually come to an end. You do realize that they are making another MMO, right? Why? To replace WoW. The MMO is suppose to be a whole new franchise as well. See, there is still room for WC4.

    Blood Elves joining the Horde, High Elves being accepted into the Alliance, and so on.
    I actually wanna see if some of the Theramore residents are pissed off about Admiral Proudmoore being killed, and High Elves joining them for the first time, and some other races as well. Well I was very interested in Rexxar's Campaign so yah.

    I really love the Blood Elves and High Elves. I hope they have a battle as well, and i hope for the Goblins, Ogres, and Forest Trolls join the Horde like they did in Warcraft II.

    Look at the Alpha screenshots for WC3 and you will see that they had realistic sized buildings and units. They had build-able walls and gates too. I'm not sure why they decided to go in a different direction. However, I would like to see realistic sized buildings as well for WC4, but I don't think they will do it.

    Of course it won't, but that doesn't mean we can't talk about it until it does.

    Epic battles fail. Warcraft 3 wasnt made for controlling 100 units, I hope that Warcarft 4 wont be either. >.<

    Epic battles are awesome, thing is i just don't like having a group of 7 footman fighting like 3 abominations as a epic battle for warcraft.

    I really have no ideal what Blizzard will do for WC4. Will they make it like WC3 where the game revolves around heroes; if so than it won't have big battles. Or do you think they will make it like SC1 and SC2 where it focuses much more on fast paced action with bigger battles and more units? Personally, thats what I would like, but I think the majority of the people here want the same gameplay as WC3.

    I would also like them to stick to 4 factions; anymore and the game will be too hard to balance. Personally, I wasn't satisfied with the Undead in WC3. If they decide to bring them back as a faction for WC4 than they better get them right. In fact, I think the Undead are best left just being a bunch of creeps. The Horde and Alliance are definites', but I'm curious to see what races are implemented into these factions besides the Orcs, Taurens, Dwaves and Humans. Any thought of what races you want in any of the factions?

    High Elven = Blood Elves after the horde "redeemed" them.

    Anyway... WC4 will be released for sure because blizzard already talked about it.
