Blizzard's Chris Metzen: "RTS is Really Covered by StarCraft", Warcraft 4 Would be "Overkill"

AusGamers sat down with Blizzard's Chris Metzen for a lengthy interview about the veteran's life and role at Blizzard, but also asked what the likelihood of seeing WarCraft 4 would be with so much WarCraft activity happening around the movie, Heroes of Draenor and Hearthstone.

"It feels like [it would be] total overkill, right?" told AusGamers. "Obviously from a game standpoint -- apart from this, like Hearthstone, which are much smaller productions -- most of our Warcraft guns are going to be aimed squarely at WoW. Right now, the RTS thing is really covered by StarCraft II, and Heroes even to some newer degree could really have feet of its own. But Warcraft IV, I think I got that question earlier today and it’s, like, “oh God… maybe one day, but phew, right now [Warcraft] is a WoW thing right now.” (Blizzard, PC, Starcraft II, StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm, StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void, WarCraft IV)
