Microsoft's naming scheme is pretty bad. The recent update was named "Fall Creators Update." Naming the next update "Spring Creators Update" will confuse people later on as to which update came first and which came second. Chicken and the Egg.

Really guys? The best idea you can come up with is to remaster D2 and WC3? You should look for jobs in Hollywood, they also love doing the same thing over and over again.

They wouldn't spend resources in making remasters unless people are still playing those games nowadays. Simple shareholder math. Shareholders invest. Developers work on the projects that are funded by them. Sure, it is a business. However, if players are still playing a game made over 15 years ago, why not remaster it so that it looks awesome in 4K Ultra HD and 1080p?

In addition, StarCraft is still played professionally and televised in South Korea. I don't think giant pixelated graphics look great in modern TV sets that watch televised eSports.

By the way, according to the video interview added to the article, if you want to play the old StarCraft versus a player who has the StarCraft: Remastered -- you both can play in the same game seemlessly. Just you will see the old pixelated version, and your opponent will be seeing the 4K version.

Would love to play an updated WC3. Would prefer to play a new WC4. Something set well after WoW's current timeline.

The StarCraft: Remastered was developed by the Classic Games Team which is composed of 20+ developers. That is all they work on.

If a Warcraft IV game was in development, it would be made by the StarCraft II team.


Heroes of the Storm is made by its own separate team as well. Will there ever be a Warcraft IV RTS? Who knows. We will have to wait and see. StarCraft II took like 8 years to make.
