The lights are on
In an interview with Blizzard Entertainment’s Matthew Burger, he revealed to PlayStation Magazine that StarCraft: Ghost is not cancelled, but on hold.
StarCraft: Ghost was first announced in 2002, and there are a number of leaked screens floating around the internet. When asked if StarCraft: Ghost would ever see a release, Burger simply stated, “Maybe.”
The hope for the release of the decade-old title is not lost and has been rekindled through the vague, mysterious words of Blizzard’s Matthew Burger. Until such time as StarCraft: Ghost is either canceled or released, fans of Blizzard's futuristic universe will have to content themselves with the excellent StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty and StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm.
For a little dose of nostalgia, you can see our original magazine cover for StarCraft: Ghost in our cover gallery from way back in November of 2002.

a week too late for april's fools...
Dum dum duuuuuuuuuum.
hopefully it isnt a giant Duke..
Lies,lies,lies... and another thing GI,its not the 1st of April,you cant just Rick-Roll us like that.
But if it is true... this is really good news,i would love to see a Star Craft Ghost game.
I lost all interest in this game years ago.
Dead, dead, dead.
No one cares.
The truth is at last revealed.
When blizzard showed up at the ps4 announcement, this game was the first thing I thought of. A man can dream.
There was a playable demo of the game back at one of the blizzcons.
With the exception of the Firebat, most of the controls were actually fairly well done. (firebat had left trigger for left arm and right trigger for right arm, only class i remember doing that, and it was a switch from all other classes, so it made it awkward).* note this was multiplayer.
Overall, i would love to see this still released. I still have the mousepad from the blizzcon i referenced. Would be great to do. As long as it isn't another C&C: Renegade. lol.
Blizzard likes to take a good long time to get their games out. Which could for a number of reasons be good or bad. Waiting can lead to a better product, but also remember that waiting can also mean problems between companies and/or ideas.
I would still be up for checking this out. A stealth action game in the Starcraft universe is just too interesting to pass up, considering the popularity (presence might be a better word) of the genre now would be a good time to really get to developing it.
I still hate Nova for the tease.
"Maybe" may as well be their "Soon" TM.
