The best bet would be an addon to SC2, methinks...and that would probably exclude a campaign or rehash old stories. Since WoW is still in full swing, there's no reason to advance the series (since WoW can cover the lore), and since SC has been so popular, a Warcraft RTS would be a direct competitor with it. Not a great position for a full release, unfortunately.


What part of "they have already stated Titan will be all new IP" did you not understand?

CEO Mike Morhaime confirmed that it was a new game and not a sequel to any existing franchises

Did you forget what you wrote :P

I do apologize for not being as clear on my quoting, though. I was merely referring to Warcraft, as I already understood that Titan is a completely new IP, and aside from being a MMO, will likely be a completely different style as to not compete with their existing titles.

I still doubt WC4. But eh. If it does happen I'll probably be 50.

Well WC3 is kind of just...WC3...I don't think there's been anything quite like it, and I don't think it likely that a fantasy RTS would have a lot of traction. So it's just kind of its own thing.

And that's why I suggested that it (Warcraft 4-ish) might just be a reskin/addon to SC2. To do a proper release would probably take too much time/effort for the income it would generate, but importing units as a SC2 mod would take a lot less time, and it would support SC2 sales (to some degree), and Blizzard is definitely staying behind SC2.
