World of StarCraft?

StarCraft MMO blasts into orbit on Computer and Video Games says Blizzard will announce an MMOG based on StarCraft in two weeks at a Blizzard event in South Korea on May 19. They claim their confirmation of this rumor comes from "Well placed US sources," and the tone of the article is quite confident about its accuracy, even though their sources were not deemed worth of the 'reliable' appellation.

Milk what cow? They've only had Starcraft and Brood War (Ghost doesn't count since it was cancelled). It's not like it's Call of the Medal of Duty of Brothers In Honor 5.

South Korea will go bonkers, aren't they still playing Starcraft by the millions?

If North Korea ever wanted to "continue" the war, they could basically walk into Seoul the day this comes out.

Please let this be a MMOFPS ala Planetside.

Cross it w/ the questing/crafting/adventure feel of WOW, and you got a deal.

And an instant preorder/subscriber.

But yeah, it's gotta have some vehicle combat/huge battles, too...

Well, if this is true, now we know what will kill WoW.

Of course, at Blizzard development rate, we won't see WoS until 2010.

Oh god... I couldn't take a Blizzard MMOFPS.

It would crush my fragile will and the shaky line I travel between maintaing a job and playing video games full time would disintegrate.

I knew it! I've had this in my mind the moment I heard they would possibly be announcing a starcraft related product. Ghost got cancelled yet it gave them some ideas and experience in a Starcraft universe up close and personal. I figure they cancelled it so they could take it to awhole new level. Making a Starcraft 2 would be hard. I also don't see why they would when they are about to release a big Starcraft 1 patch in a week or so. But I've always imagined how cool this could be. More realistic graphics than WoW, finding crazy guns as gears and cool biosuits or something. Could be real cool stuff if done right. WoW was done right, I don't see how they could take any chances and not make this one right. Sucks though, I wanted SC2!

The big question I have is whether the game will be on multiple platforms or not. Personally, my hope is that it will be for PC only. Computer gaming needs a product like this to keep it alive.

I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of Korean voices suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced. I fear something terrible has happened.


Seriously, South Korea will ask the north to train their nukes on Blizzard HQ if they fail to deliver Starcraft 2.

Gee an MMO based on Starcraft, what a suprise.

People always seem to enjoy what they pay more for, so let the idiots enjoy...

I doubt it will be the only MMO announced by Blizzard there.

I know most people think it will be a MMOFPS, but what if it's an MMORTS, where you manage and upgrade a small group of units and then combine them into massive armies with other players?

Oh my, I think I need a new pair of pants....

Yeah that's what I was thinking also.

All I know is if it's another MMORPG, I'll be very disappointed. (Oh god...WTB Upgraded Gauss Shells! 25 Vespene! LFG Tarsonis Raid! PST!)

Think it will be a MMOFPS based on Starcraft, no. Hope it will be yes, yes, and yes.

That would be absolutely perfect IMO.....which why it'll never happen .

Planetside required actual thought, dedication, persistence and teamwork, something sorely lacking with most of the young-uns nowadays.

That'd be cool. I want to see a combination of RTS and RPG. I like the first or third person view of RPGs. I don't like the Top-down view of RTS games. They take the visual spectacle of the massive battles out of the game, IMO.

So it'd be great to be playing Starcraft but through a soldier's eye view, something like Battlezone 2.

An MMOFPS would be great, but FPS games, to my knowledge, have zero appeal amongst female gamers, which is a big part of the MMO market. It'd be great if there was at least one or two classes in the game that were FPS oriented though. Like the Ghost unit.. maybe he could snipe at enemy weakspots or something.

World of Starcraft??

I think Galaxy of Starcraft would be far cooler and more appropriate.
