Default If Blizzard made Blackthorne 2 or Lost Vikings 3, how profitable would it be?

Why hasn't Blizzard made those sequels? R&D limitations? Not profitable? Something else?

My guess is the titles would have to be considerably reworked from a design perspective. Their respective genres don't really exist any longer. Also, their flagship franchises are basically guaranteed million sellers so I'm sure there is more incentive to focus on those.

They could (should) remake them for cell phones, they would be great on the iPhone/iPad and Android phones. They are old SNES games, something that would work great on a cell phone. People want heavy 3D rendered HD stuff these days.
