Blizzard announced Warcraft III Invitational - major update planned

Earlier this week it was revealed that Blizzard had invited some prominent Warcraft III veterans to a special event, igniting the game's fanbase with rumours that either a remastered Warcraft III was on the way or that a potential Warcraft 4 was in development. 

Now Blizzard has officially confirmed that on February 27th and 28th the company will be hosting a Warcraft III Invitational, which will be streamed on Twitch with a variety of special events, competition matches and more. Blizzard has also revealed that a new patch is coming for Warcraft III, which will offer several feature upgrades like 16:9 support, a 24 player limit, an improved map pool, world editor updates and several balance changes. Not bad for a game that is over 15 years old. 

Right now these changes are available in an early PTR (Player Test Realm) patch, which is available to download here for both Windows and Mac PCs. 

This live event will be streamed on Twitch and hosted by Neo and Remo of Back2Warcraft. Below is a list of known attendees of this exclusive event. 


• Neo [Observer] Germany

• Happy [Undead] Russia
• Foggy [Night Elf] Ukraine
• HawK [Human] Russia
• Effect [Human] Sweden
• ReMinD [Night Elf] South Korea

Blizzard announced Warcraft III Invitational - major update planned


Many Warcraft III fans still expect a major reveal at this event, with many expecting that Blizzard will announce a remastered version of Warcraft III in the near future. This makes sense given the overall theme of this event, building up hype around Warcraft III to create additional demand for their hypothetical re-release.

Welp, feels very underwhelming after creating such a hype.

Maybe we'll see something bigger at Blizzcon, which, in general, would make more sense for a reveal of something bigger.

Still nice to see 16:9 finally being added Quote
