Warcraft 3 reforged release
It's been 15 years since the popular "Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne" (the expansion pack released behind Warcraft III) was released, and it has taken the gaming community by storm. Since that day, Warcraft fans around the world have been asking the same old question, when will we see the fourth part of the series?
We are in 2019 and, sadly, we are not yet close to the answer. However, don't lose total confidence; There are some developments taking place in World of Warcraft, which may indicate that a new plot is looming in the game.
Warcraft has achieved great success, dating back to 1994, when Blizzard released its classic Warcraft: Orcs and Human Games. It's so popular in the gaming community that we saw a second game join the series in year two, Warcraft II.
Warcraft III came out eight years later, possibly the most popular of all Warcraft games. It has been expanded and derived multiple times throughout World of Warcraft, and is still played today.
Considering its popularity, I'm really surprised that Blizzard hasn't added a fourth game yet. However, with that said, news of the Warcraft III remake - Warcraft III: Remake - was announced at Blizzard Carnival 2018 and will be released in late 2019.
Will this be the platform Blizzard needs to finally start rolling the fourth ball? I'm not sure...
Every year since 2003, Warcraft fans believe that they are getting closer and closer to the release of Warcraft 4, or at least an announcement about the game is in preparation. Unfortunately, it hasn't happened since that date, and there are few signs that the fourth game will usher in the dawn.
However, the Warcraft III update can breathe new life into the idea of the fourth game. Blizzard senior producer Pete Stilwell was once quoted as saying: "First of all, our priority is to make Warcraft III: Recast the best." In other words, any other current content is placed on the lowest priority list. middle.
The main problem and one of the main factors that interrupted the "Warcraft 4" rumors is, how will the story continue?
Many people know that after Warcraft III, we saw a lot of Warcraft expansions and games, which continued the WC3 story and explored most of the plot. It would be very strange if Blizzard decided to forget all the events that happened in these games and take off at the end of WC3.
With that said, you may wonder, how did other long frames and complicated frames solve this problem in the past? The answer is reboot.
Restart is a way to reuse the concept of the game and some of its characters, but essentially rewrite it completely. Historically, we have seen this happen in games like StarCraft with great success. That's why Blizzard did the same thing with Warcraft III

We came here in 2019, and there is still no news about the fourth game joining the ranks of Warcraft. However, what we have to wait for is "Warcraft III: Remake" and "World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth." Two games that make Warcraft fans happy.
It is only a matter of time before the old question resurfaces. There's no answer. Warcraft 4 fans lose a bit of confidence by the day. With that being said, a huge fan base has been established, and eSports is now bigger than ever. I really hope Blizzard can theoretically seize this opportunity and make the most of it. I think only time will prove everything.
