    Bestbuy has Starcraft Ghost set to release at 3/16/06. Does anyone know if this is accurate, or if they are just estimating or relying on old info? As usual, Blizzard hasn't updated the Starcraft Ghost FAQ in a long time.

    I'm looking forward to seeing this game as well, however what I am looking more forward to is Starcraft 2 - come on Blizzard, get on it! :cool:

    As for the release date, I would take that with a grain of salt. ;)

    Starcraft 2 is so long overdue it's not even funny. There is so much demand for it, Blizzard would be stupid not to release it in the next year or so - and then follow with WoS hot on its heels utilizing all the new advances, gameplay, etc. made in SC2. :cool:

    I want to see SC2 as well, but I'd like to keep this thread more on the SC: Ghost topic

    It looks like Starcraft Ghost is on track for an October release, but it is no longer mentioned on Blizzard's official website at all. Does that seem weird to anyone else?

    Im' nervous for SC Ghost. I know Blizz has never released a product that they've felt totally confident on (like that one adventure 'cartoon-like' game about Thrall) but the way this SCGhost game has been constantly pushed back - and I think almost cannned at one point - really makes me nervous.

    I'm not too big on FPS's though. Loved counterstrike, but dont feel a huge need to buy SC Ghost, aside from the fact that its a Blizz game.

    Wow, from the sound of it they're giving up on SC: Ghost for right now but are looking into making it for the next gen consoles. And I've been looking forward to this since the announced it (~4 years).

    Ouch.

    Man... that really is some rough news. Most games that are started on one system and postponed until the next gen systems really dont even take advantage of much of the next gen capabilities.
    I think most of the games that were postponed until the next gen system probably could've been done on the "current" system. For some reason I can't think of any examples though.

    It's basically canned. With a small glimour of hope that it may be resurrected, but I'd say too much development time has been wasted on this title.. If they can solve the problems they were having with framerate etc, and release it with minimum modification albeit at a higer res on the 360, then we may see it. If it looks like too much of a task to redo stuff, forget it...

    From a cube exclusive 2 nothingness in 4 easy steps (well years 2 be exact)..

    2010? I take it you're assuming no set backs and delays . . . . .

    As far as officially announced projects, the only one on Blizzard.com is the Burning Crusade expansion for WoW. Who knows what they are working on that hasn't been announced, I'm guessing there is a Diablo title in the works and possibly a new Starcraft title since Ghost was basically scrapped.

    They probably canned it to work on WoW some more.

    I f***ing hate WoW. :mad:

    Way overhyped. For me its just another boring run-of-the-mill MMORPG. Those games bore the hell out of me.

    Yah i want starcraft 2 personaly. I thought ghost was a complete flop anyways.

    I did hear rumor that starcraft and warcraft may combine forces into one big happy family. It was something about one big game and you could choose which realm you would want go into. I do not know how much truth to that there is though.

    oh that woul be great and LONG overdue! they can keep the games the same, but if they were to revise bnet so that it was more efficient to host/join games and have different types of games, and all of that - that would be amazing.
    Even better - if they really threw the hammer down on hackers/cheaters!!

    I'd imagine this may be something like what they did for warcraft II when they made it available on bnet. same game, just different/new online features.
