I know this sounds like complete shit, but it makes me hopeful. I remember this rumor started going around in, like, 99′… I don’t care. Starcraft:Broodwar was one of the best games I’ve ever played, let alone had a year+ fun playing. Head-to-head strategy games are always lacking something, and the only other game that compared to Startcraft was Warcraft II. If these rumors are true, I’ll be spending much less time away from the
computer photoshop. I hope Josh and Dan would want to play. :)
“According to Fighter Forum, StarCraft 2 continues the story of the original and adds a new race based on Kerrigan, making a total of four races. While that wouldn’t be totally off the mark, we figured the new race would be more the super-race mix between Zerg and Protoss rather than Zerg and Terran or at least the mystically advanced Xel’Naga. The three older tribes will each be receiving around two additional units.
The report also claims that Blizzard plans to shut down its original StarCraft servers in order to ensure the success of the sequel.
As popular as StarCraft was on these shores, it doesn’t come close to the enthusiasm the game still enjoys in Asia, where televised, professional matches are held regularly. Blizzard has an event coming up in Korea where they are expected to make a large announcement, so it could very well be that the company has chosen the area where StarCraft is the most popular to announce its sequel.” - via IGN
