How many new starcraft games do you see coming out? As much as I love RTS games and I REALLY love RTS games. I also know that RTS games are dead. They fall in the same category as space flight sims only existing in the occasional indi game and my nostalgia fueled dreams.
You should try SC and watch the cinematics, click on all the chat dialogs, and do all 3 campaigns in order. Then you will see why SC2 is the best RTS ever made. Star Wings of Liberty, Heart of The Swarm , Legacy of the Void. Mission Packs.
I bought them all Collectors Edition back in the day when they first came out. I think they are all free now. Maybe Mission Packs are not free. But all the others are.
And if you want to start from the very beginning, go start SC1 and then SC1 Brood Wars. Do them all in order to follow the story. One of the voice actors for Star Craft went on to do Mortal Kombat. You play them ALL in order no skipping anything I have the CD ROM discs for SC like 1999 ish they first came out I am thinking. You can get them from Blizz here now though on your battle net.
Because if you dont then you will not be making sense of almost all the story from SC2 and will not enjoy it much.
Blizz announced a long while ago that they had 6 more exacs planned out and that was 4 expacs agon when they announced it so…Got two more for sure. The old Blizz team that split off from this one is going to be making an RTS soon. They havent done much on it so far.
For sci-fi I’m pretty loyal to SWTOR as an mmo I don’t know much about StarCraft I admit, and I’m not a fan of Blizzards other popular franchises like Diablo or StarCraft but a Diablo mmo would be more appealing to me though at face value I don’t know much about it just people wishful thinking on it every once in awhile
Blizzard Entertainment announced today that it is ending most StarCraft 2 support moving forward. There will be no more paid content such as new War Chests or Commanders or story expansions. This comes after StarCraft 2 crossed its 10th anniversary earlier in 2020.Oct 15, 2020
If anything a Starcraft mmo would breath life back into the franchise
i would do this in place of wow2 with an updated “engine” that they say limits them so much and with better graphics. i would also contue making content for wow at the same time and put less work into less popular games like heros of the storm/overwatch to do this.
The biggest problem I can see with doing this is how conclusively they ended the story at the end of SCII. I mean…sure the zerg are still around and I’m sure there’s still fighting with the various ultra-religious groups of protoss but… To make that story continue, you would need lots of "merely a setback"s. And too many retcons is half the problem with the state of wow…
I will first say I know very very little about Starcraft, and I played it one time and it’s not really my kind of game so I stopped playing.
That said, I’ve often daydreamed about a new more futuristic game, like WoW’s style, the way the graphics looks, the way the characters are, but in the future.
Different races, slightly different classes, and instead of the old medieval style weapons, armor and mounts, they would be all futuristic types. We already get a little of that with the steampunk style mech mounts and other things in WoW, but I’ve always wanted more. More laser swords, or laser guns, more mech mounts, hoverboards, hoverbikes, maybe hybrid animal and mech creatures as pets or mounts etc, futuristic armor and/or spacesuits I know I’m not the first and won’t be the last person to think of this, but I have imagined it many times, haha. I could ramble on and on but my point is made.
