As Gamescom wound to a close, IGN caught up with StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void producer Tim Morten to discuss what Blizzard had in store for the future of its key franchises. Morten revealed that the developer’s real-time strategy team is considering going back to their roots for an upcoming game. While far from an actual confirmation, the producer had some interesting views to share on the future of the Warcraft franchise.
“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. There’s no question, though, that we’ll consider Warcraft, StarCraft, or even new ideas. Anything is possible.” — Tim Morten
However, Morten did not deny the possibility of a StarCraft III, noting that its universe still holds plenty of story potential following the third and final expansion to StarCraft II.
Morten’s recent statement follows Blizzard’s announcement of the new Legion expansion pack for World of Warcraft, revealed at Gamescom. No specific release date has been revealed at this time.
