Starcraft: Brood War Summary
Blizzard producer Alex Mayberry teased that third-person spin-off StarCraft Ghost is something still on their minds at the studio, but he doesn't know "if we'll ever do it but I think it's something we'd like to do."
StarCraft was announced to be getting a spin-off over 10 years ago, and it was Blizzard's first major push onto consoles, but tech limitations meant they 'weren't ready'.
Blizzard had other galactic plans in motion outside of StarCraft, reveals Stay Awhile and Listen author David Craddock, whose book explores former devs time at Blizzard Entertainment.
The studio split into two teams after Diablo 2, reveals Craddock, and one "started and scrapped" many ideas. Someone came up with a Diablo sci-fi clone, codenamed 'Starblo'.
