No Plans For Warcraft 4, Says Blizzard
Don't rule it out yet, though.
Blizzard senior producer Pete Stilwell has revealed that there are currently no plans to develop Warcraft IV. However, a sequel to Blizzard's acclaimed real-time strategy series is possible, and the BlizzCon 2018 announcement of Warcraft III: Reforged proves the developer hasn't completely abandoned the series.
"I mean, I wouldn't rule anything out, but we don't have any plans around [Warcraft IV] at this point. Getting [Warcraft III: Reforged] right, I think, is our priority first and foremost," Stilwell told GameSpot in an interview. Reforged, a remaster of Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos and its The Frozen Throne expansion, aims to appeal to fans of the franchise's earlier real-time strategy days. Stilwell's words reinforce what Starcraft II: Legacy of the Void producer Tim Morten had to say about Warcraft's future.
Reforged features remodeled characters and animations, as well as remastered maps and campaigns. The UI and world editor have also both been upgraded, and Reforged features 4K support. A Spoils of War edition--that unlocks special in-game content for Diablo III, Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft, Heroes of the Storm, and World of Warcraft--is now available for pre-order.

Warcraft III first released in July 2002, about two years before the debut of the massive-multiplayer online role-playing game World of Warcraft. Other than a few Warcraft-themed additions in Heroes of the Storm, fans of the real-time strategy series haven't seen any major announcements since the release of 2003's The Frozen Throne. It looks like they'll have to wait a little longer for any possibility of Warcraft IV.
