StarCraft remaster rumored for this summer

Blizzard logoThe original StarCraft was launched back in 1998 and safe to say it changed the way many had looked at RTS games. Its launch in 1998 also means that the game is nearly two decades old, so could it mean that maybe it’s time for a remaster? According to a report from Sports Seoul (via PC Gamer), the answer is yes.

In their report (which was Google translated), it suggests that Blizzard is working on a possible remaster of the original StarCraft that could be launched this coming summer. It is expected to offer up similar gameplay and keep all of its features, except that it will sport HD graphics and also Battle.net connectivity.

Now this isn’t the first time that rumors of a StarCraft remaster have made their way online. Last year there were rumors of a HD StarCraft remaster, but nothing materialized, although Blizzard’s statement of “we don’t have any announcements to make at this time” only served to fuel the rumors as it wasn’t exactly a denial.

We should also point out that back in 2015, Blizzard had a job opening for a senior software engineer that could help restore Blizzard’s older titles to “glory”, so it isn’t as if Blizzard wasn’t interested in giving some older titles a HD remake. In any case it’s best taken with a grain of salt for now, but with StarCraft 2’s storyline having officially come to an end, until StarCraft 3 launches, we guess a HD remaster of the original StarCraft wouldn’t be a bad idea.
