    It's not World Of Starcraft, Blizzard has already stated that the new upcoming MMORPG will be a totally different universe.

    Could it be a fourth universe Blizzard intends to make to join Starcraft, Warcraft, and Diablo? o.o

    I consider myself an innovative type person. We have computer now, and are reaching a ridiculous amount of physical automation, so I feel confident we are going to start reaching ideals. Is there not an ideal way to construct an adding circuit?
    Pancraft! :D

    Like I said, look to history.

    Ultimatums have always ended up being wrong.

    "The earth is flat."
    "The earth is the center of the universe."
    “I think there’s a world market for about 5 computers.”
    “640K ought to be enough for anybody.”
    “There is no reason for any individual to have a computer in his home.”

    I could go on.

    But i didn't say that SC2 would be the last game ever, so why bring that up.

    You're making the assumption that there's no point in furthering the series. There was a joke back when SC1 was being developed that SC1 was simply Warcraft in space. Look how well it turned out.

    That demonstrates the similarity in implementation.
    Not even.
    There was no foundation for this belief.
    This is true. The computers being talked about were crap.
    If you don't plan on doing anything modern.
    Again, true for the computers at the time.

    Never before in history have we been able to approach the mathematically most efficient solutions. With computers and our increasing level of physical automation, we are approaching ideal implementations. Sure, we may upgrade to a faster processor, but we don't need to make a new calculator program every time. At most, we simply compile it for the new architecture.

    The engine SC2 is using, is called Havoc.
    The reason why Blizzard doesn't use it's own engine for SC2 is because their engine renders cartoonish style models. That was one of the problems with Starcraft Ghost, a lot of people didn't like the cartoonish style in SC2. Hence, Warcraft "4" wouldn't look cartoonish (like it should) in the SC2 game.


    On a side note, I really wish Blizzard will come with some new ideas, games, genres.
    At the moment SC2 and D3 are just remakes of their older games with better graphix. Personally I don't feel SC2 changed anything to the genre. It's just a remake of a great game where old tactics are easier to execute. I would be dissapointed if Blizzard would make their next game Warcraft 4. . .aka wc3 with better graphics.

    Blizzards plans in 10 years:
    Warcraft is still a RPG game with like 8 expansions.
    Starcraft- still a RTS game.

    They have maybe quitted making Warcraft RTS since they find it pretty meaningless of developing 2 RTS games. So why not turn one of them into a MMORPG?
    More variety, now they have a MMORPG, RTS and even a hack-n-slash online 2.5D game.

    And could you guys imagine?
    World of Starcraft.

    The guy who started the thread has no clue why hes right but he's completetly right. Most of my war3 opppents are now playing zotac in SC2, so yes! It is war4 as many tournaments, players a re frm war 3.

    WoW is a mmorpg. We still need an RPG. I'm not sure if Blizzard can make those though? I mean last time they tried the game got canceled. They would need to hire some experts.

    I think you mean Havok, which isn't even a game engine. It's a physics engine.

    WoW won't stay as the only MMO they own, they have a new one. It's probably not SC, it's probably it's own new theme entirely.

    well it sounds like they are already making WC4. if it comes out in 5-8 years, wont that be enough time for them to make the editor even more powerful and improved?

    Sorry for the mix-up. Warcraft Adventures was canceled and Starcraft Ghost was postponed.

    This just goes to show that their attempts to make a good RPG have failed. When it comes to making games Blizzard just happens to struggle with RPG's. It's their weak spot. They need to get some experts in that category. They need to hire some people form Bethesda or Bioware. Those companies make great RPG's.

    True.
    A mix between Dragon Age: Origins, and Oblivion might become great :D
