When Blizzard released Diablo 3 for consoles, it was the company’s first console release. However, in case you didn’t know, back in 2002, Blizzard had attempted to branch into consoles with its StarCraft franchise through a third-person shooter game known as StarCraft: Ghost, but the game never came to pass.
However, thanks to recently-leaked footage in 720p HD quality, we now have a much better and clearer idea of what we could have expected from the game had it been released. Obviously the game looks very dated by today’s standards, but it shows off a fair bit of gameplay that shows gamers what the game might have been like.
Blizzard had originally announced StarCraft: Ghost way back in 2002, a good 18 years ago. It was supposed to mark Blizzard’s foray into the console scene and it was also supposed to represent an alternative and deeper dive into the StarCraft franchise, which at that time was known for primarily being an RTS game.
However, following the years since its announcement, the game put on indefinite hold and where in 2014, Blizzard’s Mike Morhaime had finally confirmed that the game had ultimately been cancelled. It would have been interesting to see how it would have fared had it been released.
