StarCraft was a franchise that was as iconic as it was enjoyable and it looks like many on the team are ready to take on StarCraft 3. It looks like many of the fans would be onboard as well, which just leaves convincing Blizzard and the big guys over at Activision that the interest would be worth it.
Production director Tim Morton and lead co-op designer Kevin Dong recently sat down with our friends over at PC Gamer during BlizzCon and naturally the continuation of the StarCraft series came up. So, where do we stand with a StarCraft 3 exactly? According to Morton, “The best way for us to figure out our future is to hear from players. So, I think if there’s an interest in seeing more RTS games, sending that message to Blizzard would be a wonderful thing.”
He added, “Ultimately, the team that works on StarCraft 2 is incredibly passionate about real-time strategy as a genre. I can certainly say it’s my favourite genre to play and so far it’s been my favourite genre to work on.”
With a cancelled StarCraft project scrapped earlier this year and several members of the original development team has moved onto different projects and companies, it seems like the biggest factor here would be community voice. The Blizzard community has always been passionate and with looming fears of Activision’s influence over the company, it’s more important than ever before to let your voice be heard about what is important to you in terms of gameplay experiences. Show the publisher that the interest is there and that investment in a StarCraft 3 could very well be worth it.
