    Maybe they'll pull a Modern Warfare Remasterered and include it in the collectors edition of D4.

    EDIT: also if Starcraft was remastered while Warcraft was "reforged", what would a Diablo 2 remaster be subtitled?

    Re-helled.

    I think we'll see a StarCraft 3 some day, maybe even the next thing they start development on after OW2 and D4 are both done. That would put the release of the game probably 8+ years after LotV came out. SC2 already feels like ancient history honestly.

    RTS is fundamentally a genre about snowballing. Everything you do is to secure a production advantage with which you can overwhelm your opponent later. Catch-up mechanics would undermine that, which means that pretty much every game is going to end with the losing player falling more and more hopelessly behind. Conceding the game is simply necessary for a game like that.

    Or you can be like me and win a SoaSE game purely by making your opponents slog through every single one of your systems while you build endless defenses even though they serve no purpose other than to delay the inevitable.

    Nothing like winning via sheer exhaustion :P

    Blizzard has like 6 development teams that all run concurrently.


    We know what pretty much all of them are working on now except for "Team 1" which is their RTS team. We don't know what they're doing. Also Dustin Browder recently left and he was the team lead for Team 1.

    So I've read some of the articles and the like about Reforged, but I don't really know where the assumption that they really pared back their efforts on it come from, other than them deciding not to go through with all the WoW lore alignment stuff. Is there something else I missed or is it mostly based on that?

    I was kinda hoping we would get another race, maybe dranei, since the lore is there to flesh them out in W3.

    Also a couple more units per race or heroes. Although to be fair I don't really care so much about balance, so I'm prob the minority here.

    It was always going to be a remaster, not an expansion. The classics team is willing to balance patch the game etc but they don't generate new content.

    That were also going to redo the cinematics, but now they're not. There's a comparison video between the trailer from last year and the original cinematic and it's like night and day.

    Except the game was announced last year as having a modified campaign, and now it won't.

    WoW is working on 8.30 and Shadowlands
    Overwatch team is working on Overwatch 2
    Classics team is working on Reforged and presumably an unannounced future restoration project
    Hearthstone is working on the Battlegrounds feature and the final expansion pack of the year
    Diablo team is working on D4


    Literally the only team with no announced projects is "Team 1" (the RTS team). They are the only team for which we have no idea what they're doing. Except that Dustin Browder recently left :bigfrown:

    I'm worried about the general lack of information and enthusiasm coming from Blizzard for the Warcraft 3 remaster. The game's supposed to come out in the next 7 weeks, and they still haven't announced a release date. Ladder isn't supposed to be in at launch, either (just hidden MMR at first).

    This new version of Warcraft 3 was one my biggest anticipated releases of the year, but now I'm getting bad vibes about it. I'm glad I held off on pre-ordering, and I hope the final product is better supported than I'm thinking it will be.

    I don't think the same team is working on Reforged as worked on Remastered. At least, not wholesale.

    On Artosis' show, The Pylon Show, he did an interview with Grant Davies from the Remastered dev team, and Grant mentioned a couple of times that the team working on Reforged had been coming to his guys and asking them questions about challenges they'd encountered working on SCR and how to apply those lessons to WCR.

    It's obviously possible that most of the team was moved over and it was just a few guys that weren't, and if we have Blizzard devs on record as saying that's what's being done, then fair, but if not then it's just a presumption that the community has collectively made, and while the SCR team moving on to WCR is a relatively logical presumption to make, it's also not necessarily that simple.

    I think there is just one "Classics Team" just based on my understanding of various posts and what not. Obviously I might be wrong. But I think they just spread their talent thin. The classics team was also responsible for WoW Classic at the same time they've been working on WC3 Reforged and whatever else.

    We also know that they move resources around as needed to finish projects. It's possible that "Team 1" isn't working on anything at the moment if they all got moved to help out on other projects on other teams.
