Chinese company rumoured for "Starcraft Online" license

According to this, Chinese MMO operator Netease's first foreign license may be "Starcraft Online, developed by US-based Blizzard".

The report goes on, "Netease CEO Ding Lei didn't confirm the market saying, adding that the company is observing many online games and has not signed any formal license contract."

Nothing, obviously, has been confirmed regarding a Starcraft MMO from Blizzard, although to say it "makes sense" is something of an understatement. The company is known to be working on a "next gen MMO" which is presumably something to do with either Starcraft or Diablo, but your guess is as good as ours.
