Blizzard: No Development Happening On Starcraft Ghost

If you've been waiting for word that Blizzard is reviving Starcraft Ghost, you might want to take off you hoping-pants: Blizzard will not be creating the game any time soon. 

In an interview with Kotaku, StarCraft 2 lead designer Dustin Browder didn't quite say "never," but he came close.

"There are no plans," Browder said.

"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."

Ghost, if you're not in-the-know, is legendary vaporware. It was planned as a console-centric, third-person stealth-action game where you'd control a "Ghost," a psychic super-spy named Nova. That means both telekinetic powers and a full armory of weapons, all taken from Starcraft. .

The original announcement of the game came a decade ago, and since then, there have been various dribs and drabs of info released, including a trailer in 2005. But the success of Starcraft and World of Warcraft have taken over Blizzard's resources, and while the game isn't officially canceled, it seems pretty unlikely that it will ever surface.
