I'm actually someone who mostly prefers the newer stuff. About HoMM, I actually started with HoMM5 when I was 14. But last year I bought HoMM3 and it just feels so much better. HoMM5 is awesome of course, yet not much better than HoMM3.
In the end this all comes down to personal preferences. Of course. It is just that Warcraft3 did so much right that it is still actively played. It is hard to imagine what could be improved or changed. Besides the story is hard to continue now that WoW is going on for so long.
Warcraft reached its peak in RTS and RPG. Let these games only be remastered, but not challenged by sequels. There is such a high risk to disappoint and fail. I would really love to see a new fantasy universe from Blizzard. A new world, new gameplay, new mechanics.
I'm completely on the side for new games. But in new worlds to explore. New storys that are not overloaded like the current ones.
We have a couple of weeks left until BlizzCon and the leaks and rumors have been heating up, with today's having at least a hint of credibility. It comes from streamer Metro_ow, and he's claiming to have a source that has given him a lot of info on the announcements and some game specifics for Overwatch 2 as well.
Why should he be considered credible? He's already leaked a number of things about Ashe from last year's BlizzCon, around a week before the actual reveal, with the info coming from the same source - "someone tied directly to a Blizzard dev". Now, obviously that doesn't mean his leaks are real this time around, but it at least separates him from the pack. But what exactly is he leaking?
Early concept art for Overwatch 1. Will we see some of the unused Heroes above appear in No. 2?
The name itself will indeed be just Overwatch 2, will have a cinematic announcing it and will be a fully featured PvE and PvP game. It will also have a leveling system that will affect and change Heroes abilities (for example Tracer will be able to augment her Pulse Bomb to stick multiple enemies after a certain level), but it's unclear if this system is for PvE only or PVP as well. Here are some more details straight from the source:
Diablo 4 and Diablo 2 Remastered
The Diablo leaks are significantly less concrete, with only this pretty off-hand tweet mentioning them:
We did hear rumors/leaks of a Diablo 4 announcement last year as well, and those turned out to be... complicated, as they were either untrue or Blizzard decided to pull the announcement at the last minute, depending on who you believe. It seems very plausible we do get an announcement this year though, at the very least a logo or cinematic tease, especially after last year's less-than-warm reception for Diablo: Immortal. As far as the remaster goes, it's been rumored to be in development for quite some time now, so it also wouldn't be surprising to see it pop up now, and it would certainly be very welcome. Perhaps WoW Classic's success has put it on the front burner?
And finally, here's Metro himself giving his "credentials":
