GameInformer interviews Blizzard
GameInformer interviewed Blizzard and their new console division Swingin’Ape Studios about Starcraft: Ghost. Although no release date has been confirmed, Blizzard presumes the game might be ready by the first half of 2006. Two new things are revealed about Starcraft II, the Starcraft franchise has sold 9 million copies to date, and there is no current development of Starcraft II yet. Blizzard does have a concern on revisiting the franchise with a sequel. With the sales of the original series, I am very impressed they haven’t started Starcraft II development with such a success record. Starcraft: Ghost, as stated by Blizzard, is not Starcraft II, and when Blizzard is ready to make an announcement of Starcraft II, the media will be informed. Additionally, Blizzard told GameInformer that there are plans for more Console games made by their recently acquired Console Division. We should keep a close eye on BlizzCon 2005(October 28-29) for any new announcements. Starcraft: Ghost’s release date could possibly be revealed at Blizzcon; and furthermore, it is no secret that Blizzard North has been working on a game—as revealed few months after the executives resigned on 2003.
GameInformer has 3 new Movies of Starcraft: Ghost. The first movie is a 3D animated cinematic showing Marines, and Firebats fighting an Ultralisc, and additionally two movies showing Single Player and Multiplayer action. The Multiplayer movie looks promising and hot!
