Starcraft 'sequel' will be an MMO game?
We spotted reports last month that said Blizzard Entertainment was gearing up to announce a sequel to its futuristic real-time strategy game StarCraft. The sequel, those reports said, would be announced at an event in South Korea on May 19. Well, a news story on ComputerAndVideoGames now suggests that the game in question won't be so much a StarCraft sequel as a massively multiplayer online title set in the same universe. CVG says its information comes from "well placed US sources" who claim that the title will be "in the style of World of Warcraft."
That story would fit with Blizzard's statements last month: "We have a very strong connection with the characters and settings of StarCraft, and we do plan to revisit that universe at some point in the future, but we don't have anything new to announce in that regard at present." Blizzard has nonetheless confirmed that it intends to unveil a new title at the Korean event. Thanks to Shacknews for the link.
