Rumors swirl about a Warcraft 3 announcement… like a remaster

Baby, it's cold outside.

If you’re looking for the source of the story behind World of Warcraft, you can look no further than Warcraft 3. Most of the conflicts that have kept the game going through its many expansions got their start there, and so it’s kind of a lodestone for the game’s overarching story and plot. So it’s worth paying attention when there are rumors that the game will be getting some sort of major update, based on a new installer and a secret event that had several top players flown out for a meeting.

So what’s happening next? We don’t know yet, although a remaster along the lines of the recent StarCraft remaster seems like the most likely reason. We don’t know yet, though, so people can feel free to speculate endlessly about what might be next for the venerable RTS game. A remaster would certainly help a lot of fans get new familiarity with a very big part of the Warcraft universe lore, after all.

Probably one of the more clamored requests by fan for years, one more classic after the vanilla realms got announced. I wonder if they’ll be smart enough to port it on mobile devices…

True to their namesake blizzland is a frozen realm with very few IP growing at a glacial pace and curling up inward has been a trend lately. If they can’t move forward, they might as well milk what they got and make that undeservedly loyal fanbase happy, no?

blizzard just needs to do a remaster of all their old games. War1-3, Diablo 1 and 2 (2 especially).

Blizz actually invited a lot of war3 players to a secretive meeting and i would say, convention. Grubby, ToD, i’m actually kinda looking forward to this.

Hmm. I preferred Warcraft II to III. You remember that one, right? The RTS without that Hero unit. The one that really started it all!

Remaster Warcraft II, and I’m sold. So much fun!

Yes a warcraft 3 remaster would be awesome! Or even a new warcraft game (although I doubt that’s going to happen seeing as WoW seems to be driving the narrative now).

I’d actually probably buy this. Warcraft 3 had a ton of amazing custom maps to it that basically kicked off the MOBA market. However there were many other untapped custom mod game types we’ve only seen minorly in games.

One of the few RTS that I played and enjoyed back in the day. I’d love to revisit it in a remaster.
