Speaking to Gamasutra, Blizzard's J. Allen Brack
said the company will "definitely" return to console game development ... "at some point." Brack dismissed criticism that Blizzard is "anti-console," assuring that the developer simply wants to make "the right game for the right platform." He elaborated that StarCraft II
will be "a better game" on PC than it would on consoles -- something StarCraft 64
players can probably attest to.
Still, Brack noted that Blizzard is "a company of gamers." "We will definitely work on a console game at some point. I have no doubt about that." This is a statement we've heard from Blizzard before
, previously from COO Paul Sams and specifically in regard to Diablo III
. Of all the known games coming down the pipe from the studio, Diablo III
certainly seems to fit the console mold the closest.
Then again, StarCraft: Ghost
was never officially canceled, right? Right?!
