    Yes they will make a fourth one. I even heard somewhere that one of the blizzard managers mentioned it by mistake. However as their staff is already split between 3 games (WoW, D3 and SC2), I dought it is even in development. If it is, it will probably be using a modified SC2 engine as they have finished coding that and so those programmers probably have reduced workload so logically they will be redirected to that.

    Anyway, SC2 will be long out before WC4. Probably D3 will be out before WC4.

    If a WC4 was to be made, like I said it would be impossiable to be released before SC2. However, if it uses a modified SC2 engine, it could be released inbetween the last of the 2 SC2 expansions or slighly later. If it uses a custom engine, you are looking at another 2-3 years of work atleast before it is capable of doing anything.

    Thus focus on SC2, atleast until it is released rather than trying to skip to WC4.

    Maybe they will start developing it after releasing SC2 and using the SC2 engine. Just like before.

    I'm curious to how a wc4 would fit into the story, as i thought that WoW was suppose to be the continuation. (Just kinda makes me think a wc4 is impossible)

    It is supposed to be about the goblins home land which is a island to the far far south of the maelstorm.

    I heard even more about this rumor, even to the point that blizzard might halt SC2's process to start WC4. The reason blizzard is even doing WC4 at all is because WoW is dieing, there is no more lore to put in there are no legendary characters/items etc..

    So their proposal is to make WC4 in order to keep WoW running smooth.

    heard the same as trax. I'm sure they'll make a WC4 but until it is set in stone I will not 100% believe the rumors. As to the story? Well I mean some on WoW is the end. I mean its a story about an entire world. It's not going to be ended like that. Anyways it would be nice to see a new one. Especially to see what they do with the WE.

    there was a thread like this some time back,
    If they were going to make wc4, then they would have to get around the story of wow.
    Then people start discussing how the story would continue...

    I'd rather see the story expanded through WC4 than WoW anyways. From what i read about the WoW story line it sounded stupid. I don't know why people can't get past the idea of WoW being something they couldn't go past. I mean come on REALLY?

    It's going to be made, Blizzard let it slip last year that a system in SC2 or Diablo 3 would be "Like the one in Warcraft 4", which basically confirms that it's in the planning stages or early development.
