Blizzard aren’t going to stop World of Starcraft mod

Posted By | On 21st, Jan. 2011

Development on ‘World of StarCraft,’ a World of Warcraft-inspired StarCraft 2 mod that’s proven rather popular over the past few days, will apparently continue under a different name, following approval from Blizzard.

YouTube videos of the mod were yanked from YouTube at the request of Blizzard citing copyright infringement, and lawyers began contacting the man responsible, Ryan Winzell. But despite this Blizzard has since come out to clarify: “It was never our intention to stop development on the mod.”

On the contrary, Blizzard explains: “With the name so closely resembling that of World of Warcraft, we wanted to discuss the title of the mod with the developer, and as part of our routine procedure, we contacted YouTube to request the video be removed while that discussion took place.”

So it’s just the title, as we expected, that Blizzard took issue with. The dev goes on to say: “We were also curious about the project and wanted to discuss with the developer what the mod entailed.”

Long live World of Starcraft, or whatever it will go on to be called.
