Ipad needs more RTS's

I think the Ipad needs more RTS's. Would be great if apple worked something out with blizzard to release the Warcraft and Starcraft games on the Ipad.

I just need Land Air Sea Warfare to come out with a universal update, and I'm good.

What is all about this post? A new RTS, or a new Blizzard game?

Because a good RTS isn't something simple to be done, like a racing game or a shooter, and I'm not quite sure if there is room for this kind of game on iPad...

What do you think?

Blizzard doesn't seem to be comfortable doing anything outside of the PC realm.

Yeah, they canceled Starcraft: Ghost, which was suppose to be on the xbox and PS2.

They're best at PC games. Can't imagine something like Warcraft II to eventually come to iPad... Same goes for like Age of Empires and stuff.

They're only best at PC games because that's all they do. Lost Vikings is too early in their career to judge their capability to produce a good non-PC title and RTSs on anything but a touchscreen fail if they aren't on a PC regardless of developer and publisher.

Also since the Galaxy Editor for SCII provides you the tools to create a full-on FPS, I wouldn't be surprised to see a heavily supported fan-made SC:G custom "map".
