Not sure if any of ya'll are fans of Starcraft, but...

I know Dakon's been jonesing for some Starcraft Action. If anyone has access to any old Starcraft discs and wanna help curb his addiction, load up and play. I have limited access to non-business web sources at work. Here are a couple sites I was able to access.

StarCraft MMO Coming, Say Sources

FAN ART!According to CVG, Blizzard will reveal a World of StarCraft-style massively multiplayer online title in Korea next month at the Blizzard World Invitational. While many fans of the original StarCraft were probably expecting a proper real-time strategy game to be unveiled, if CVG's "well placed US sources" are to be believed, they're out of luck.

Blizzard previously confirmed that they are indeed announcing a new product in Korea this month and listed open positions for work on an "next-gen MMO."

With the announcement exactly two weeks away from today, we won't have long to wait to see if dreams of an RTS sequel to StarCraft have been dashed. The only thing keeping the fanboy tears from shooting out of my ducts with the force of a hydrant is the delusional hope that Blizzard will be announcing two products next month, one being an RTS. See, I'm not an MMO kind of guy. Michael McWhertor

World of Starcraft: New Blizzard MMO to be announced May 19?

Written by Wagner James Au
Saturday, May 5, 2007 at 11:02 PM PT | 13 comments

StarcraftComputer and Videogames? website is purportedly confirming what has just been an incessant rumor up to now: Vivendi game studio/World of Warcraft developer Blizzard Entertainment will announce an MMO spinoff of their wildly popular Starcraft franchise at the company?s May 19th Worldwide Invitational in South Korea.

I say ?purportedly? because the CVG article only cites unnamed sources, and I don?t want to jump the gun; I?m checking with Blizzard?s PR department now, and will report what they say, if anything. Then again, Blizzard has been running help wanted ads for developers of an unnamed ?Next-Gen MMO? on its site, these last few weeks, and Starcraft is the other jewel in the company?s IP crown.

Assuming the company does confirm, is a Starcraft MMO a good business move? For the Asian market, absolutely, but it?s hard to imagine it would reach anything like the global success of World of Warcraft.

So far, science fiction-themed MMOs based on well-known IP have performed poorly against expectation: Star Wars Galaxies only managed a few hundred thousand subscribers; Matrix Online didn?t even reach six figures. (My personal theory is that sci-fi just doesn?t work in an MMO, because it?s not fantastic or other-worldly enough to feel like a meaningful escape into an alternate reality. After all, what?s the appeal of pretending to be in a world of spacecraft, high-tech military hardware, and pervasive computer interfaces, when you?re already in one?)

Another challenge: Both Warcraft and Starcraft began as real-time strategy games, but it was easier for Blizzard to make the genre leap with the fantasy-themed Warcraft, already similar in appearance and gameplay to other fantasy MMOs. Without a large pre-existing audience for sci-fi MMOs, it?ll be a lot tougher to convert Starcraft into a multiplayer roleplaying game that?ll appeal to its RTS fanbase.

Except, of course, in South Korea, where 3.5 million of the 9 million units of Starcraft have sold. Given its population of 49 million, that means one in sixteen of the entire country has a copy; there?s even Korean television shows devoted to Starcraft gaming. Which is probably why Blizzard?s making the announcement there (if they are). I?d expect any Starcraft MMO to be developed for the Korean/Asian market first, and only after proving itself there, localized for Western consumers.

I'm hoping and praying that the new SC is an MMO, but Blizzard refuses to say anything to confirm or deny it. So until I see something from them, I'm going to keep assuming it's an RTS. And if it is an RTS, I'll still be a happy man.

As much as I hate to say it, I really can't see Vivendi shelling out the money to develop anything but another MMO through Blizzard. They've made an obscene amount of money off of us from WoW, and whether it's Starcraft or Warcraft, I really don't think they'll bother trying to do anything else.

I want to have more faith in Blizzard than that, but I think their corporate masters are going to destroy what's left of it.

I would love a starcraft MMO. In fact, starcraft would have made a better MMO than warcraft, IMHO. For instance, you don't really have just 2 sides for PvP, you have 3. And the races/tech is VERY different, which would enhance "replay" value as other races. Let's face it, a druid is a druid is a druid in WoW.

I think it would be an absolute blast to play in an MMO in the starcraft universe. I say bring it on, blizzard! Laughing
