    I saw this on one of blizzards things, and this is on most fansites I know of..

    Its confirmed but not announced... Guess what? All those people from those wc4 debates that thought wc4 would never happen? Guess who was proven wrong?

    Not only this there have been many hints in reviews that its up next. And why not? Just because WoW is around doesn't mean they can't make a RTS, theres still a lot to explore in warcraft, sure illidan and LK are dead or will be, but theres still a lot on the table to use.

    Plus on one of the reviews they said if they did a wc4 they would ignore WoW.

    I doubt it would happen soon. They've got Starcraft 2 to release first. XD

    Unless you can actually give a reliable source, I think it's much more likely that warcraft 4 *would* use the same model, not *will*.

    Of course, it wont be out for atleast 4-6 years


    Reliable source? TO you guys nothing is a reliable source. Its inevitable, if pple knew anything about gaming companies, they would know. Games branch into different genres all the tine. Theres no reason not to go back to the RTS, if it was stupid idea then why make a starcraft 2? Even if that game goes MMO and it will, they will still make RTS games.

    the only thing they confirmed is that if they make wc4, it will be like Sc2, a triology.

    A blue post would be reliable. But you're not even giving any sources at all in the first place. Without those, I just smell trolls.

    Blizzard is going to make it, but will start off from where wc3 ended, not where wow ended. World of Warcraft is now slowly dying as one of the greatest mmorpgs of this era, and Blizzard will want to continue the warcraft story since it has been so successful.

    Starcraft 2 and Diablo 3 are undoubtably going to be extremely good. But I'm sure Warcraft 4 is going to be a very hard, worked on project, as of seeing all of the negative reviews from WotLK.

    Rather a movie based on a game:). Since Warcraft is based around it's either ever changing lore or world. Both the movie and game might follow the same path. But I don't think the movie will be based on wc4 lore, or wow lore. I think they've based it around just the third war, not much battles, just undead steamrolling through alliance on their roflengines..

    Actually I don't think we knew what happend a year before WoW, only a couple years before it. And if you read about the movie, which theres even a page on blizzards site about it, it will be staged a year before WoW, and not focus on first/second war just because it will be too similar to Lotr, they even said it,

    Plus they said warcraft 4 will use the same thing, they never said if they make it.


    So if I color code the quote blue its reliable?


    EDIT: Seriously just google it, its been a announcement on most wc3 fan sites that they confirmed it, thinking its untrue is just ignorance. Not to mention all the friggin hints and then implying.

    I think all he was asking for was a blizzard post on it. Like a link or something. That would be nice. People do make up rumors all the time about games, so it still could be false.

    I, personally, do believe you, however.

    I'm pretty sure the quote was taken off of one of there occasional reviews they have. Not to mention they have been hinting this on a lot of reviews, and they never said it wasnt impossible, or unlikely. What do you think will be next?

    WC4 would happen, but in like the year 2015 odd or later. Too far away to even consider.

    2015? Jesus, you people think it will take that long? They are most likely talking about the lore and such as we speak, that's step one, and should only take a couple months to get down. You do know it's like 2009 right :D And we're talking about Blizzard, they'll probably speed up production when diable 3 and starcraft 2 are out. Wow creation isn't hard to do, unless they really try on the next expansion. Overall I'm sure it'll most likely be out or near completion in 2011 and will most likely come in 2012. Wow expansions at this pace only last a year or two, so they'll be done with wow before wc4 comes out.
    (all of this is just rough foresight from good observant skills over the last 10 years of watching blizzard...)

    I think that one of the producers said that they are making SC2 like that, and "will be making WC4 in this likeness too", or would be. There was a massive fuss about it a while ago, wasn't there?

    My first post has a quote of that.


    And really 2015 really isnt that far away, SC2 2 has been in production for 6 years, and its not out yet. Good games dont come out in 5 minutes. Good games take time to make. And blizzard will make sure it is a good game. Once Wc4 is out, that very well may be the kill strike for wc3.

    Also if they make wc3 like SC2 im going to be pissed, I want to be able to play offline skirmishes and shit I dont want to have to be online to be able to do campaign and stuff.. one negative about SC2 which is stupid

    Yeah cause warcraft 3 fansites are to be trusted? The real ignorance in here is that you still don't provide any sources, especially when it's "so easy to google".

    I can certainly expect blizzard to consider war4, but if it's not announced, it's not possible to be confirmed. Fail thread is fail.

    I really hope there will be something like WE and a LAN-Support if WC4 comes. No LAN in Starcraft nor in Diablo :((
