Back in 2002 Blizzard was wanting to create a third-person shooter and stealth action game hybrid known as StarCraft: Ghost for the consoles. Four years later in 2006 Blizzard decided to put the project on “indefinite hold.”
After talkin to Official PlayStation Magazion, Diablo senior designer Matthe Burger commented that StarCraft: Ghost actually “never been cancelled” and also started that “it’s on hold.”
Later he was asked directly if the game will ever see the light of day, Burger replied simply: “Maybe.”
Last summer, StarCraft 2 lead Dustin Browder stated that Nova’s appearance in recent RTS release of StarCraft 2: Heart of the Swarm did not mean that they were interested in Ghost.
However, he decided to tease by saying:
“It doesn’t mean that in two years from now, we won’t have those meetings, the team won’t be formed, but there is literally nothing happening around that game right now that would indicate that there’s any likelihood that it will happen,” he said in June.
“It’s just as likely we’ll do that again as Lost Vikings 3 or whatever. There’s just no guarantees one way or the other, but nothing is happening.
“We are super huge fans of consoles. We love console gaming as players,” Browder added. “I wasn’t really party to [the decision to put Ghost on hold] but I know it was a difficult decision.
Well maybe StarCraft: Ghost still truly exists somewhere out there, stay tuned on GamingBolt for more StarCraft news and leave any comments below regarding this rumor.
