Announcer: Welcome to The StarCraft II: What’s Next Panel.
Day9: Ladies and gentlemen. BlizzCon, how are you? Yes. You’re doing “woo!” as all crowds always are. Welcome to StarCraft II: Beyond The Void which is a very fancy way of saying StarCraft II: What’s Next? Here to talk about it are the absolute best human beings you’ll ever meet on the planet Earth: the members of StarCraft I team we have Christopher Reed (the lead UI designer) who goes by Crash.
Danny (Blizzplanet) interviewed Brian Sousa (Art Outsource Supervisor) who worked on the original StarCraft 20 years ago, StarCraft II, and recently StarCraft: Remastered. We asked about the challenges of developing the Remastered assets, and about what might come next for StarCraft: Remastered in upcoming weeks, and what the Classic Games Team might consider the next Remastered game to be.
Surprisingly, Brian Sousa revealed that Blizzard will work next on remastering Warcraft III and Diablo II. Jump to 20:50 for the quote.
Brian: “what we are focusing on now is actually the games that we know that are still been played, like Warcraft III and Diablo II . Getting those two into the modern Battlenet platform.”
