That is hard to say, Blizzard is having a ton of success with WoW. I guess they could make Starcraft more like Warcraft III.

I hope it's Starcraft 2. Having never played Starcraft, and having heard so much about it, I'd like to try my hand at it.

As for Blizzard announcements, I kind of am hoping for a new franchise. Granted, Blizzard games are usually amazing, but it would be so nice to have them create a new world/universe. It's kind of annoying how many titles out these days have numerals in them.
Plus with a new franchise they'd have a good excuse to do some more genre innovation, maybe shake up their RTS or Adventure/RPG formulas a bit. That would rock my world.

Dojo, SC can be grabbed from any store for the grand sum of 10 bucks. Plus it's still very popular online (it's practically the national sport of South Korea).

Just make sure you don't play it 50 hours in a row, or you'll die. But yeah, no reason not to buy it right now.
I do hope the next one is Starcraft 2. Then they'll do the obligatory expansion. THEN they can start something new.

Or...would SC2 with RoN style gameplay be better.

That is undeniably cool. On the other hand, unless they integrate some of the gameplay enhancements that WarCraft III introduced, I don't really see the point. StarCraft's graphics may not be 3D, but looking at some of the screenshots, some of the 3D conversions actually look less good than their 2D counterparts simply because the complexity of the originals doesn't translate that well.
I hope that they're able to finish it, though. I'd definitely download it and give it a try.

Belcarius: out of curiosity, why do you say that it won't be any good? And why don't you have a link to StarCraft Zone Control? Or at least a description of what it is...

It looks like a custom War3 map with SC units and a newfangled script.

Due to the open structure of the game, the story will be developed over time with new patches, expansions and so on, and I doubt it will ever truly end except maybe in a WoW 2... The only way I can see that Blizzard would be able to create a true WarCraft IV would be to bridge a gap between WoW and a possible future sequel to the MMO... otherwise they've pretty much locked themselves in on this one.
This will probably not mean we won't see any more RTS games from Blizzard, there's always been word about returning to the StarCraft universe with an RTS (and not only console action games like Ghost) and there's always the possibility to create a new franchise.

Starcraft Zone Control, in the most recent version I could find (you have to remember that with WCIII some people just do a straight release onto Bnet), is simply eight players attempting to control a series of square zones with Starcraft units avaliable to them.
This provides some small niche gameplay with the old starcraft tactics. I doubt Revolution will be any good because a) they are starting to lose steam, b) obviously it doesn't feature online gameplay. So, its only value is for the single player and LANs - and at the LANs I've been to most people just generally play the original more than they do Warcraft III! (Not a word about how old our computers are )
