Now that Blizzard officially cancelled Titan, a game they never officially announced, does this mean we can have Warcraft 4?
Blizzard’s Mike Morhaime says they’re not going to work on another MMO at this time. They’ll continue working on stuff like Hearthstone for sure, and now my hopes are as high as possible that they’ll finally decide to go back and try to revive the strategy genre they helped define. What about Starcraft, you say? Warcraft strategy games are so very different. Warcraft 3 specifically focused on a very small unit count in order to maximize micromanagement. Hero units created a significant mechanic that I haven’t seen used the same since. They feel like night and day to me — and I’m good at Warcraft strategy games and horrible at SC.
In a way… I’m excited to see what Blizzard does now. I don’t want Blizzard to focus on MMOs. Less MMOs the better. Bring on the other games that’ll actually deliver a full and complete experience!
