Warcraft 3: Reforged was released back in January 2020 with a rather abysmal launch. The game was highly criticised for being a pretty lacklustre remake due to its shoddy texture work, poor remastered visuals and uninspired changes. In fact, Warcraft 3: Reforged ended up being the worst user-scored game ever on Metacritic.
Soon after its release Blizzard promised fans that the developer would fix the issues plaguing Warcraft 3: Reforged. However, it took Blizzard until May 2020 to openly speak about the game’s development and the so-called “promised” changes.
While Blizzard did work on the game throughout 2020 and into 2021, the developer hasn’t issued any sort of update for the game since April 2021. Keep in mind that Warcraft 3: Reforged is still very much incomplete and many of the promised features are still missing in action.
To make matters worse, the ongoing sexual harassment lawsuit at the company hasn’t helped Blizzard either. In July 2021, reports claimed that the Classic Games team responsible for making Warcraft 3: Reforged was dismantled at the company and the studio no longer had any hands to work on classic remakes and content for the re-released titles.
Blizzard might have reformed the Classic Games team or perhaps outsourced the development to another department. According to game director Mike Ybarra, the studio plans on sharing a development update on Warcraft 3: Reforged next month.
When replying to a question on Twitter from a fan asking for an update on the game, Ybarra confirmed that June will host some sort of news.
We don’t know what this news could be. Is Blizzard going to release a new update for the game or perhaps announce a console port during one of the many game events taking place in the coming weeks? We will have to wait and see.
You’ll hear from them soon (in June).
