No Starcraft: Ghost for Cube
Developer Blizzard has revealed that the long-delayed but eagerly anticipated console debut of the Starcraft series has been axed on the Nintendo GameCube, the developer concluding that there is simply not enough (or indeed any) online support for the system. That said, Blizzard re-affirmed that future titles may be developed for the Cube or the Revolution. "In order to provide the game envisioned by the console team a set and readily available online solution was needed. Unfortunately the GameCube has no online service and since so much work is going in to the online portion, it would be additional work to release only part of the intended game," read an official statement on Blizzard's forums, in response to mutterings from the BlizzCon event.
"Nintendo systems certainly aren't something that we are against supporting. Blizzard in its entirety is based upon earlier games for Nintendo systems. The GameCube and Revolution will still be considered for future products, unfortunately Ghost will only be made available on the Xbox and PS2 at this time," Blizzard representative 'MicahW' continued.
Swingin' Ape Studios are currently in the process of polishing-off Starcraft: Ghost alongside Blizzard, and gamers will most assuredly be looking forward to this new title in the acclaimed Starcraft series.
