StarCraft: Ghost may release after all, teases Blizzard

Monday, 8th April 2013 14:10 GMT By Dave Cook

StarCraft: Ghost was one of the more prolific vapourware legends of generations past. It was an action-based take on Blizzard’s strategy world, and after what seemed to be a torturous development hell it was canned. Developer Matthew Burger has poured fuel on the rumour fire.

Speaking with OPM, the site asked Burger if StarCraft: Ghost was still an active project at Blizzard, to which he replied, “It’s on hold. It has never been cancelled.”

The site then asked if it might get released, and was met with a simple, “Maybe.”

That’s actually all there is to this story. It’s a straight-cut tease. But If you’d like to see some demo reel footage of the project from days gone by simply check out the clip here.

    So, the last I heard about this was “We’re reviewing the next generation of consoles” and “it’s on hold”.

    That’s been the case for this entire generation. I wonder if Diablo 3 coming to the PS4 has any influence of this. I mean, Blizzard will have the dev kits in house – they will have made the jump and have the experience of working with it.

    Following up that project with Ghost is almost natural progression.

    Would be so cool if they found a way to make this game work!

    Could be, but with all the discussion on there which then led to upgrades to existing units with the release of HotS, i doubt it.

    Good to know it’s still a possibility. The basic game premise has always interested me. Hopefully this will eventually come to be. At least we know that, if that ever happens, it will have been very well thought out over a very long period of time.

    THey said Maybe and that its not cancelled and people are swooning with excitement.

    THey didn’t cancel it in the first place they also called the project to be on hold. Its the same thing. THey aren’t developing it but I am sure if BLizzard find it worthy they will make it but they aren’t.
