Don't think so, they're kinda continuing the storyline in WoW.Maybe later they'll remake the storyline in an rts, but I don't think anytime soon.

this makes me mad warcraft is so ASWOME.

There probably will be.

chances are low right now..but they have a "Secret" project in dev some ppl heard but stil..man they destroyed warcraft lore with WOW so warcraft 4 will be sh$%#

There is a slight chance that there may be a 4. The Devs haven't really said much.

I pray to god they do, but I doubt they will. WoW is their cash cow, even though it sucks compared to the original WC games.

I have to disagree with all the other posters. I expect WoW to end its life span within 3-5 years, and after that Blizzard will no longer release new content for it. They'll move onto another MMO, I'm guessing a Diablo one. And I'm almost positive there will be a Warcraft 4, it's their original RTS and I doubt they'll abandon it for WoW.

Relax. You've gotten the opinion of one forumite that most likely has no real info on the game at all. Don't be so gullible.

WoW is kinda like Warcraft 4. Unfortunately it screwed single player gamers.
#11 Posted by Baron_14 (1771 posts) -
I hope so.
#12 Posted by -Origin- (1816 posts) -

I dont think Warcraft 4 is going to be for a long time, because Diablo 3 is before that, and Diablo 3 is going to take Hellishly long !

And plus their always making expansions for WoW, SC2, and maybe even a World of Starcraft ?

#13 Posted by vogelhut (667 posts) -
Blizzard only has three series (at the moment), don't worry, WoW won't give them money forever.
#14 Posted by Chairman-Yin (286 posts) -
i really wish they'd do diablo 3 first, then a FPS starcraft...now that would be sick.
#15 Posted by Vito25 (450 posts) -

A Diablo MMO?? Oh god no! They already crapped on Warcraft with that MMO, I prey to god they don't do that to Diablo. A Diablo 3 would be nice though. And don't give me that "Hellgate is Diablo 3" nonsence.

Maybe, but not for a very very long time. First they gotta take care of the second WoW expansion. Then they gotta finish Starcraft 2. Then there is always that demand for Diablo 3, so I think it will come before Warcraft 4.

Maybe after all of that, there might be a Warcraft 4.

I hope so, I don't want to play WoW for the story

In what sense? Other then setting Warcraft 3 and WoW have NO relation to one another... Its like saying that Empire at War is the sequel to Jedi Knight outcast! Which is absurd.. And honestly NO.. As a fan of Warcraft 3, I can say they need to put it on the back burner because I think a Starcraft 2 and Diablo 3 is more important sense those two have yet to be updated as far as warcraft 3.

Lets not forget that Starcraft 2 will most likley have a expansion (like just about all of their most recent games)..

Not really a low chance, I'm betting evetually there will be a warcraft 4, but as everyone knows blizzard takes things really slowly.

God...I hope not, that series is played out!

Diablo is played out, starcraft is played out, and warcraft is played out...they need a new bag!

Trust me when I say this, Blizzard is going to go down HARD! Granted their next couple games will be a success, and rated high but that's only because the "Blizzard" name is going to come with it.

Blizzard is heading in the same direction Porsche did years ago when they got away from the thoroughbread race car stigma to family SUV's, and now even a stupid sedan on the horizon. All because they brought in some stupid Japanese evangalists who turned the Porsche name into a yuppy promotional gimmick! Porsche is no longer the powerhouse of performance, and lacks the fundamental raw edge it used to...same with Blizzard, they've lost their way.

HELL GATE LONDON FTW!!!

No need to post two of the same posts...

But Blizzard already has enough series to work on, they don't need another. At the rate they go, they won't be making a new game for a while, also, how many game storylines can you re-do? Blizzard doesn't know much more than RTS's, WoW being proof. Although a Diablo 3 would be nice, I still want WC4. I never really found Starcraft to be to much fun, mainly because I played for a few minutes and got bored, but I already know SCII will be awesome.

#25 Posted by m_j_skin (175 posts) -
Im guessing they may make a No. 4 after their 2nd WoW Expansion has been released, next year.
#26 Posted by rainierflu (207 posts) -
I hope they take the code for that game and nuke it!!!! lol
#27 Posted by boyd62 (372 posts) -

Blizzard will milk the wc franchise for all the money it can get. There will be a wc4, a diablo 3, and a starcraft 3, plus the associated MMOs at some point. Most likely a starcraft clone of wow. As far as mmo's go, wow will be around for at least another 5-8 years based purely on the # of subscriptions. Blizzard though, takes it sweet time producing games, so do not expect anything before 2010.

However, blizzard is really never going to be innovative again. The simple fact is, that they are run by vivendi,and like EA all vivendi is intersted in is the bottem line. Starcraft 2 will be a good game, but its not going to be groundbreaking , or innovative, or the best thing to hit pc gaming since doom, all it will be is another clone RTS in a familiar setting,with a good storyline,along with having the quality that all blizzards games do when released.

As far as blizzard going down, get real. They could afford to drop 50-100$ million dollars a year into game development for the next 5 years, and not even have to worry about the money, due to the profits they are taking in. If your talking about blizzard going down, because they are not a cutting edge,innovative developer, that happened years ago, shortly after wc2/diablo2 were released and prior to starcraft.

#28 Posted by ammusk (218 posts) -
yea there will be ... but anytime in the next 10 yrs cause blizz will be busy milking WoW

I doubt it. The whole storyline seemed complete with WC3 + Expansion. No real reason to continue on.

#30 Posted by Toriko42 (27562 posts) -
WoW is a little more popular then Warcraft 3 but it makes wayyyyy more money because of monthly fees and the story is continuing through it and I found WoW more fun then WC3 so Blizzard will go with WoW till it dies out

Have you ever driven, or for that matter been a passenger, in the Cayenne? That SUV is freaking incredible, and it does the Porsche legacy proud. Not to mention they still have the 911s (GT2s, Turbos, CS4s, etc), the Cayman, and the Carrera GT.

Go ahead and criticize games, but leave the Porsches alone man.

the whole story line is not complete at the end demon hunter dies and arthas becomes the frozen throne guy. there are also knew races as the undead sylvana started one with the dreadlord called the possesed and dont forget the naga and the blood mages they will probably want revenge for demon hunters death.

diablo 3 anyone? don't think so
#38 Posted by HellNova (1 posts) -

In many ways... Wow brought in all characters and is killing them off. Illidan, Arthas (upcoming expansion) were main characters that have been killed. Kael, lady Vash (dont remeber how to spell her name) were killed. If they made a Wc4 they would need to make a complete new story line. Or base it in the future on the same lands (maybe the legion will come back or orcs will start to rape again).

All in all Wow was like a gaint money making peace off crap that fell on WC series. The chances that a WC4 will come out and relate to any of the previous characters is slim because it wont match up to WoW.

In 10 years if they make a Wc4 it will relate very little to Wc3 (besides maybe the land) just like Diablo 3 (which is set in the future) and Doom 3 expansion.

#41 Posted by Nikalai_88 (1755 posts) -

People were saying Blizzard will never make a Diablo 3 because it will compete with WoW, so you never know.

#42 Posted by jonnymcl2k (1604 posts) -

*note: i've not read most of this thread*

i think IF they made a warcraft 4 it will disregard anything that has happened in wow. Things such as killing off main characters like Illadin and maybe even arthas in the new expansionby some random no names doesnt seem very epic by Warcraft's lore standards.

just my 2 cents

#43 Posted by aerman176 (710 posts) -
It's possible, but I'm not sure how the storyline will play out, WoW really convoluted things in terms of all the different factions that emerged and such, I imagine it would be pretty difficult to come up with a satisfying story for the next RTS
#44 Posted by shakmaster13 (7138 posts) -
warcraft 4 will be about the pandaren and naaru teaming up to kick legion a$$ on argus or whatever planet the legions base is.
#45 Posted by Xavier_12 (824 posts) -
Expect a Starcraft 2 and Diablo 3 expansion before you see Warcraft 4. It took Blizzard 4 years to make War 3 after Starcraft came out.
#46 Posted by Adrianstalker (1467 posts) -

By the way, does anyone else feels that Starcraft 2 will be quite mediocre? I saw all those previews movies screenshoots etc and it seems to me that it is just a Starcraft with better graphics. I sincerly believe this game will get old very fast

Besides, Blizzard has been dissapointing me for a long time. I think that the last title I enjoyed from them was Warcraft 2, nothing more

Also, on topic, I have the same feeling that warcraft 4 would be as generic as starcraft 2 seems to me

#47 Posted by THE_FLAUS (1 posts) -
Thats stupid. warcraft and WoW are no way related. postponing warcraft 4 to make more profit on WoW is just nonsense. It's just a different animal. WoW to warcraft is like drew barrymore to lucy lui in charlies angels. they dont even belong to gather.
#48 Posted by SpaceMoose (10788 posts) -
If there will be, it surely won't be out for at least 5 years. I'd say probably more like 7 actually. There is no reason to believe Blizzard is currently working on or has any definite plans for a Warcraft IV. As it is, they haven't even said what their new-IP-secret-MMO is yet, and they said Starcraft II is going to be released as 3 games. They aren't likely to go, "Oh hey, we're working on another RTS game already," right after Starcraft II comes out. That's not really Blizzard's style. I honestly don't care if they never do another Warcraft. I appreciate that they did things to set it apart from the rest of the RTS pack, but the whole focus in multiplayer on heroes and items and killing "creeps" and making heroes that hit level 6 suddenly far superior to everything else really is not my thing. It was fun for a while, but that game just did not have the lasting appear that Starcraft did in its time. It has too many things that feel just ever-so-slightly too "gimmicky" for a strategy game. At least it's not as absurdly fast-paced as the Command and Conquer series. I'll definitely give it that.

No, because there isn't any. You want news about something that in all likelihood does not exist.
