Blizzard: “No Plans” To Bring Back StarCraft: Ghost, But It Might Have A Chance Someday
Blizzard has said that they currently have “no plans” to resurrect StarCraft: Ghost, but did leave open a small bit of hope.
StarCraft: Ghost was a stealth game that had originally been scheduled to release on PS2-era console platforms. Rumors had suggested that the game was delayed into the (then) next generation of consoles (PS3/360). However, the game was ultimately indefinitely delayed.
Kotaku reports that after having made a cameo in StarCraft II‘s Terran installment, Wings of Liberty, SCII Lead Designer Dustin Browder has said that StarCraft: Ghost lead Nova will make an appearance again in the Zerg-focused installment, Heart of the Swarm.
Browder was asked if there was any chance that StarCraft: Ghost could be “resuscitated.” He said:
There are no plans. I’m not saying we won’t ever, but I’ll tell you what I do know: There are no meetings going on. There is no team. No one talks about doing it.
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. 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. I wasn’t really party to [the decision to put Ghost on hold] but I know it was a difficult decision.
