If you were a bigger fan of Warcraft before it became a whole world, we have some good news for you.
StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void director Tim Morten told IGN that Blizzard might make another real-time strategy (RTS) game set in the Warcraft universe.
“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,” Morten told IGN. “There’s no question, though, that we’ll consider Warcraft, StarCraft, or even new ideas. Anything is possible.”
Warcraft was originally an RTS series until the massively multiplayer online role-playing game World of Warcraft came out in 2004 and became a giant hit. The franchise also inspired a digital card game, Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft, a free-to-play title that makes $20 million a month.
