Rumor: Starcraft Ghost to be or not to be on PS3?

You haven't forgotten about Blizzard's Starcraft: Ghost, have you? If you have, take a refresher course on it then get back to us. Blizzard ostensibly cancelled the project a few years back when it was nearly through production for the PS2, Xbox, and GameCube. No real reasoning behind it, but we've got a theory. They needed the resources to beef up World of Crackcraft as well as pound away at Starcraft 2.

Why do we come to this conclusion? Because Blizzard's Rob Pardo said so himself. About cancelling projects, he said "We're just willing to cancel the products that fail ... Our most recent one was Starcraft Ghost. With that game we were very stubborn. I still believe in that game and the characters but we were not able to execute at the level we wanted to...Rather than work on that we had to focus on our other games. We're hoping one day to return to it." What this means to us is once Starcraft 2 is out into gamers hands, they might come back to make Ghost a PS3, 360, and PC title. Or work on Diablo 3. Either way.

1. Are you actively trying to turn this into a rumor? I read the same quote from Blizzard twice yesterday and didn't turn into a gitty school-girl over it. Is it possible? yes. Is it likely? not so much. Is it responsible for you, as a writer, to label your personal wishes as rumors for others to get mistakenly excited over? no. it's not.

2. dude, i think it's Mr. Doerr's responsibility as a fanboy to spread such rumors and create an army of fanboys that will hopefully back this game's return. i think that's what separates this site from ign and such.

regarding Ghost: at the time it was canceled it was being developed for the ps2, gamecube, and xbox. it was reported that it was looking nice (i had one of their texture artists as a teacher).

and it was being developed not by PC blizzard but a console devision of theirs. THAT console devision was CANNED and the game with it. as fun as a ressurection sounds i highly doubt it will happen. *douses fanboy fire*
