Blizzard is set to wrap-up the StarCraft II trilogy with the upcoming Legacy of the Void Expansion.  So what are Blizzard’s Real Time Strategy developers going to be working on when this is out the door?  Apparently, they’re mulling over some different ideas.

According to a recent interview with IGN, StarCraft isn’t over.  There’s a possiblity that the RTS team could head straight into developing StarCraft III.  While many fans of the popular strategy title will be glad to hear that, Blizzard’s Tim Morten also revealed that there are other ideas on the table, like a new Warcraft RTS.

“This isn’t the end of StarCraft, but it’s the end of this story for these characters,” Morten told the publication.  “We don’t have any specific plans, but I’ll say that the universe has so much potential for more stories.”

So where does Warcraft fit into this?  It’s unclear if the response was prompted by questioning, but Morten says as far as Blizzard’s next RTS is concerned “We’ll consider Warcraft, StarCraft, or even new ideas.  Anything is possible.”

Blizzard recently revealed that the Legacy of the Void Expansion for StarCraft II is expected arrive this year.  The game is currently up for pre-order, but Blizzard hasn’t exactly been known for keeping a tight schedule on these things.  Legacy of the Void will likely launch when it’s ready.

Like Heart of the Swarm for the Zerg, and Wings of Liberty for the Terrans, this third installment will focus on the remaining faction in the Protoss.
