The Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm mod Warcraft: Armies of Azeroth came to the attention of the internet back in early 2015 when a group of Warcraft fans began to make a mod for Starcraft 2’s engine that would be used to make units out of World of Warcraft instead of the Koprulu Sector.
A short time ago the mod’s developers began an Indiegogo campaign to gain more money for the mod’s development, but it was shut down just today.
Today, our team decided to cancel the crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo.
Unfortunately, because of several faults it did not attract much attention, and therefore did not raise the funds required for the development. We want to apologize for it and ask for forgiveness of those who decided to donate. Your money will be returned to you soon.
However, it’s too early to mourn Armies of Azeroth, as we are planning to start preparations for the new crowdfunding campaign taking into account all the sticking points that we have encountered before.
Warcraft: Armies of Azeroth has Blizzard’s blessing and would be a remake of Warcraft 3 with updated graphics and units for people to play, and would have been available for free on Battle.net, Blizzard’s personal gaming software.
The Warcraft games were the first games that took place in the World of Warcraft universe, showing the first series of wars between what would become the Alliance, and the Horde, and Azeroth’s first encounter with the sinister, world-destroying horde of demons known as the Burning Legion.
Armies of Azeroth promised a wide variety of units and buildings, such as liches, gryphon riders, humans, trolls, naga, and others.
Wherever the Warcraft: Armies of Azeroth developers decide to plant their flag next, we hope that they’ll be able to attract enough Warcraft fans to make their vision a reality.
