StarCraft: Ghost

How long have we been waiting for Blizzard’s StarCraft: Ghost? I can’t recall – I think they first announced it in 2001.

This week at E3 Blizzard have published new trailers and gameplay movies. I can’t help thinking it might be too little too late. What blew us away three or four years ago now looks a bit, well, ordinary. Halo 2 seriously raised the bar.

What’s been taking so long? I don’t know, but it looks like Blizzard have ditched their original partner Nihilistic Software, bought up a console developer, and brought the game back in-house.

The question for Blizzard: can they release this game before the next generation of hardware arrives and they look completely stupid?
