To be fair though, MS opened up a dedicated Studio to handle there RTS games in Worlds Edge. Blizzard just handballed this off to some unknown which obviously wasnt the best choice when it came to handling the IP.
Blizzard should have a dedicated RTS team.. not sure where the team who made StarCraft 2 went. Maybe working on another project or Probably the same team whos making the next WoW expansion.
We're not even entirely sure on if it was outsourced or not, hence why my comment wasn't based on outsourcing.
Blizzard themselves were a dedicated company towards the genre, but they gave that up since WoW, many years ago now. MS has only just recently gotten sort of back into RTS (would prefer them to outnumber Blizz's RTS titles someday, let alone EA's), but it's still better than this garbage tripe that is WCIII Reforged. The sodding start menu uses a whole CPU core as well as 150% utilisation, that's batshit insane to see that happen for an old PC RTS title, fucking mind boggling.
Turns out it was shoved out the door, in order for them to meet with their fiscal year though, so that part makes sense.
