What’s next for Blizzard’s RTS team after the StarCraft 2 saga wraps up later this year?
According to StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void producer Tim Morten, speaking with IGN at gamescom, “anything is possible.”
Does that “anything” include Warcraft 4?
In terms of a long awaited followup to Warcraft III, Morten confirmed that nothing is on the table yet, but it’s something the studio will consider once Legacy is out.
“It’s very rewarding for us to hear that there’s demand out there for more RTS content in the Warcraft universe so once we’re done with Void I think we’ll get together as a team and talk about what would inspire us to work on next,” he said.
What about another StarCraft game?
Blizzard has previously stated that Legacy of the Void will be the end of the StarCraft story as we know it. However, the universe could be further explored in future games.
“This isn’t the end of StarCraft, but it’s the end of this story for these characters,” Morten clarified. “We don’t have any specific plans, but I’ll say that the universe has so much potential for more stories, clearly other stories could be told… There’s no question, though, that we’ll consider Warcraft, StarCraft, or even new ideas. Anything is possible.”
When is Legacy of the Void out?
The final installment of StarCraft II doesn’t have a firm release date yet, but Q4 2015 is the general timeframe Blizzard is aiming for right now.
