StarCraft HD Next Month?

Blizzard may be releasing a remastered HD edition of StarCraft next month, according to a story on Kotaku. This is based on a story on Korean news site iNews24 filled with symbols we can't read. They offer a translation, saying, "Today, multiple sources with knowledge of Blizzard internal plans said that Blizzard will reveal StarCraft HD to the public this September. The StarCraft HD remastered version will retain the original gameplay and is said to have improved graphics resolution and user interface (UI)." They say a September release makes sense, since it would coincide with the conclusion of the StarCraft II World Championship Series 2016. Blizzard has not yet commented on this report. Update: StarCraft, not StarCraft II.

Sure why not? Blizzard is basically porting every idea they ever had into every other game they make.

I expect to see Demon Hunters in Overwatch in the next year.

Illidan was in the first batch of heroes.

Where'd you get this from? I'd like to know more about failed/dropped heroes.

Whoops, my brain read that as Heroes of the Storm, not Overwatch. Not sure we're going to see WoW heroes in Overwatch.

I would buy HD remakes of classic titles even at $30 IF they used the latest graphics engines for StarCraft and Diablo.  
They're waiting for you, Gabe, in the test chamber!

I wish they would just redo them all in the new engines so you can at least SEE them on modern PCs. I tried to play SC, but man it was too hard on my eyes.

That's because all the games were made for the era when we still had interlacing. It's just a pain in the ass.

I don't think he was talking about the console version.

I myself wouldn't mind a WC3 HD update as I played multi to death on that game

Warcraft 3 had a fantastic editor, I did an RPG mod for the game, so if they brought their editor up to scratch alongside the HD remake, I'd return for that alone, and I'd pony up a bit for it, too.

Best case scenario is that SC HD will be SC with SC2 models and much of its art assets. Which is FINE.

However, Blizzard has no replacement models for Diablo2 or Warcraft 3, and they're not going to be spending MASSIVE resources on doing that.

Diablo2 will never be HD'd properly. WC3 HD may come out with cranked up texture resolution but not actual model overhaul.

There was an article a couple months ago that Blizz was looking for assistance on reworking Diablo in HD so I'd expect 1 and 2 to get this treatment as well soon.

It's Blizzard so you can definitely expect it NOT to be 10 bucks on release. I'm thinking they will try to justify a 20-30 price range and the Blizz fanbois WILL pay.

I myself wouldn't mind a WC3 HD update as I played multi to death on that game, however overall I'd prefer a WC4 with the WC3 gameplay. Not sure if that'll ever happen while my hands can still function properly.

Sounds like it won't get an engine upgrade though. Just the current engine with hirez graphics.

Also, when did "next month" become September? Where did the summer go?

It's pretty funny that they expect Koreans to drop classic Starcraft... ever.

I believe they are also working on a "WC3 HD" remaster. There were a few articles about it in late 2015.

I'd rather they get WC3 working properly in widescreen, but this would be neat. Not sure I'd pay more than $5-$10 for it.

Would it still have the 12-units-per-group restrictions? That was my biggest complaint about the original game. Even Total Annihilation, of the same era, allowed unlimited group sizes.

I'll get it for 10 bucks, but anything over that (seems likely, given that it's Blizzard) and haha no.

What has Wing Commander to do with Blizzard? Oh, wait... I got it.

Hell, what does Double Penetration have to do with Blizzard?



On a side note, I would be interested in this if I could be single player offline with no Battle.net account required.
