Starcraft: Ghost was long ago thought to be a project that Blizzard had shelved for bigger and brighter games. It turns out that the game was never officially canceled and might still be hitting the market sooner rather than later.
It’s possible that Blizzard has seen so much success with titles like Starcraft II: Heart of the Swarm that they might be looking to expand their immersive universe even more. Of course, there are also titles on the way like Starcraft II: Legacy of the Void so it seems hard to figure out exactly when this particular game would be released or fit in the storyline.
Starcraft: Ghost was a game that has long been considered “vaporware” which means that many thought it was more myth than reality. Today Blizzard came out and made some statements that appear to tease at the possibility.
The game would have put players in a first person shooter version of the story. The legend of the game had you being put in the shoes of one of the soldiers that were in the “Ghost” squadron.
Diablo 3 senior designer Matthew Burger recently did an interview with OPM in which he commented that while the game has been on hold, it was never canceled.
Whether or not that means that the game is going to be coming in the next few months, the next few years or will remain on indefinite pause for the end of time is unclear.
It does seem odd that a developer for the company would go out of his way to talk about how a game wasn’t canceled unless there were some plans in the works.
The game was first announced way back in 2002 and since there really hasn’t been any action, it was thought left in the dust. Is there a possibility that Blizzard moving some of its products over to the console could breath new life into the chances of the game being made?
What do you think about Starcraft: Ghost‘s chances of eventually being produced?
