    Official website: StarCraft Remastered

    Q&A done by Team Liquid: An interview with the Devs of StarCraft: Remastered

    Additionally, Starcraft Brood War will receive a new patch and be FREE
    Patch notes: StarCraft v1.18a Patch Notes; Preparation for SC:R

    What does this mean for WarCraft III?
    Since StarCraft: Remastered will be built on the original StarCraft engine, any changes related to it's battle.net will likely reach WarCraft III's battle.net. Some features announced for SC:R are new and improved anti hack system, custom hotkeys and legacy accounts no longer expiring.

    Additionally, since it is the same team working on the WarCraft III updates and StarCraft Remastered, many interviews with the team about their upcomming project may shed some light on the future of WarCraft III. For exemple, here is an interview with a Senior Classics Team Producer where it is discussed that WarCraft III will be in the backburner until StarCraft Remastered is shipped and stable. Also the interview confirms that the classics team is around 20ish people.

    Hopefully this will also give some people the greatest hopes, with Blizzard's other game franchises. :wink:

    Nice emphasis on community by the interviewee.

    It looks gorgeous (expect for minimap entries overlapping with the new UI in the replay sample on the web page).

    First found about it here:
    Starcraft Remastered

    Yeah, let's hope for Warcraft: Orcs & Humans (+more than 1v1 multiplayer), Warcraft II, Diablo and Diablo II enhancements!

    Yeah, we were fortunate that the Yahoo interviewer is a fan of WarCraft III!

    @StoPCampinGn00b

    Need a light?

    It is almost unbelievable. But a remaster of Warcraft 3 will be much more appreciated from my point of view. StarCraft is cool but lacks what Warcraft has.

    Hype. (Double Hype) Updated Starcraft with all the old units will be fun. This also means Wc3 could soon be remastered or something equivalent.

    Oh yeah and I just reeeeeeally hope for a Warcraft III editor update for this Remaster version in the coming year(s).

    EDIT: I mean an update for the Brood War editor to be similar to Warcraft III's.

    If this happens, then the chances for Warcraft III should be high as well.

    Can someone from the guys that are in contact with Blizzard say if this will reach Warcraft 3 (without breaching NDA), please? Or anything related to Warcraft 3 in light of this recent news... anything :(

    Hey we just got a file size boost, don't worry - Blizzard will come around.
    Knowing exactly what they're working on will require someone on the dev team, however they may not be able to release any info because of confidentiality.

    All though I'm not into the StarCraft franchise, I always get excited to see news from the Classics Team. Good stuff!

    "Need a light?" Is what the Terrain Firebat says when trained. :)
