My Absurd Blizzcon Wishlist

My Absurd Blizzcon Wishlist

It’s that time of year again! It’s Blizzcon eve, and I’m going to make a few wishes upon a star and hope they come true.

Here’s what I really hope we see this weekend from Blizzard.

Warcraft 4

I really want to see this become a reality. Technically, I think they’ll do an HD remastered version of Warcraft 3 and Frozen Throne before we ever see a new Warcraft game, but that’s a mistake in my opinion.

A new RTS game would be a huge hit for Blizzard, and surely a success. Blizzard could use the Starcraft engine and no one would even care. I will never stop wishing for Warcraft 4 to be announced at Blizzcon.

A New MMO

Probably the most absurd of all my wishes is that of a new MMO (which we wouldn’t see until 2025). Diablo, Starcraft, Overwatch, or new IP. I don’t care. I’d like something new in the MMO space. I think Blizzard may even be the only company capable of figuring out how to launch a F2P MMO and succeed without the game being complete garbage. I’m not saying I want it to be F2P — quite the opposite — but I think they could experiment and succeed.

Overwatch PvE

I think it would be awesome if Blizzard took the Overwatch PvE gameplay to a new level and created a PvE campaign or some sort of PvE mode of sorts. I’d settle for a horde mode that stays all year long with lots of maps and features that really build up the PvE gameplay.

Action-Adventure Game

I’d like to see an action adventure game in the same vein as something made by Naughty Dog’s Uncharted series. I think the Diablo property could possibly lend itself to something like this, or even the Warcraft property. Something single-player with a story.

Warcraft Adventure Game

Okay, so maybe not Lord of the Clans, but I’d love a Warcraft adventure game. Something point and click all about story. A retro throwback with humor, easter eggs, and lots of Blizzard class.

Not More of the Same

I’d be perfectly fine if we didn’t see a WoW expansion, Overwatch Hero/expansion/map, Hearthstone expansion(s), Diablo 3 season announcement, Heroes of the Storm hero, or Starcraft DLC announcement. Anything but more of the same would be a wish come true. I’m not saying it’s bad — no, it’s all quite good. I just want something new and mind-blowing to come out of Blizzcon this year.

Okay, those are my wishlist items! They’re absurd, and I’d be in complete shock if any of them were to ever come true. What are your Blizzcon hopes and dreams?

  • Oooo I just thought of another one.

    I’d love to see a mobile game set in the Warcraft universe where you build up a civilization/city or something. Yes, even one of those time-waster games. Something Fallout Shelter meets Farmville.

    Why? Just because.

  • Would love to see a WC4 or even WC3 Remastered would do. Overwatch PVE would be great. I for one would love to see D3 have an offline mode for PC like it does on console. Don’t understand why it doesn’t. Sure I know that Blizz claims that it couldn’t do it because of the PC version being setup around the failed Auction House, but I don’t buy it. I have never played D3 with anyone. Always solo. I think for stuff like D3, SC2 and Overwatch PVE (if it were to ever happen) should give you the right to set your account to PVE/Offline at the account level. In other words for people that don’t want to play them Multiplayer they could choose to go Ofline/PVE and it would set them at the account level not to be able to ever use the game in question online. That would solve the (what if hackers mess with stats) stuff. I am rambling.

  • We’ll see if we hear anything about those remasters of Diablo II and Warcraft III they talked about along with the remaster of StarCraft.

    Everything else is going to be pretty predictable. If there is a WoW expansion, and it will be hilarious if there is not as everybody is convinced, we’ll only get a location and some high level details. Overwatch, Hearthstone, and HotS will be exactly as you note. Blizz has already said there won’t be anything for Diablo and the schedule only has two short sessions about it. StarCraft is likely facing the same level of attention.

    The only wildcard is maybe Blizz announcing something new. But think how many years they went when BlizzCon was pretty much just WoW and a StarCraft tournament. New is still kind of new for them.

  • Diablo 2 remake with strong anti cheat and anti duping mechanic.
    (that is what ruined the game to some degree)

    HD, higher details and textures, more content…

    So many people want this. Why not?

    But a new Blizzard MMORPG would be sweet as well.

  • I’d be surprised if you don’t see something new (besides Hearthstone) aimed at mobile. Blizzard knows that more people are playing games on phones and tablets than PCs, and they’ll want to tap deeper into that market.

  • I do know we will see a new Hearthstone expansion announced. IIRC it’s supposed to be later today. But that is something everyone knows is coming. I too hope they announce something new and different. I hope we hear announcement of a new RTS as I have heard a lot of people talk about how the genre is dead, and I think Blizzard is one of the few, if not only, company that could revive it.

    I would not be super excited about a new MMO. I honestly think it would just be an updated WoW and either be WoW 2 or one of their other IPs but be a WoW copy with just updated engine/graphics etc and a few innovations on the system but I doubt anything too different from WoW.

    I would love an action adventure game as well. Overwatch actually seems like it could lend itself to this really well. There is a lot of lore and backstory for a shooter that could be expanded on. I would love to see something set before the current game, where youa re part of the original team even. Diablo would be another really good one, and warcraft would be cool but my least favorite of the three though I would still be excited for it.

  • Just catching up on a few weeks worth of my feeds and this made me lol. None of your wishlist came true (not that funny) but then coupled with every single thing on your “please no more of this” did actually come true, I laughed.

    At least I hope you didn’t pay for Blizzcon.
