Blizzard: No Starcraft MMO planned right now

Wednesday, 17th August 2011 19:35 GMT By Debabrata Nath

Blizzard’s revealed it currently doesn’t have any plans to develop a StarCraft MMO.

Co-founder Frank Pearce, speaking at a press conference at gamescom, explained that the studio was too busy with its already announced projects and it’s not logical to try and create an MMO based in the StarCraft universe.

“We definitely feel like all the worlds we create would lend themselves well to multiple genres and multiple forms of media,” he said. “So, if there was a development team within Blizzard that was free and available to create a StarCraft MMO and that was something they were really passionate about then we would certainly consider it.

“But right now, as you can see based on the presentations these guys did tonight, we’ve got our hands full with everything we’re doing. So we don’t really have any plans to do anything beyond the StarCraft RTSes and the expansions right now.

He signed off by saying that one should never say never: “But anything’s possible, because we have created such rich and cool universes.”

Blizzard’s not kidding when it says its got its hands full – in addition to developing StarCraft 2: Heart of the Swarm, Diablo III, and new expansions for World of Warcraft – it’s also making a new, unannounced MMO codenamed Titan.

Thanks, Eurogamer.

    THey have project Titan there is no need for SC MMO. So if anything they can just keep “milking” warcraft until that MMO is released.

    This could be the second dumbest waste of an IP ever. A Universe of Starcraft MMO would be so big my nuts would melt, it would be like printing money.

    But, I guess when you are already printing money you’re too worried about how to spend it to bother printing more.

    First dumbest waste of an IP as always goes to George Lucas for the SW IP for consistently pooping out bad cartoons, games and kiddy crap when they could be making a billion a year on films NOT directed or written by the bearded fool who owns said IP.
