The original Starcraft played a big part in establishing the RTS genre as we know it today and is still a very well-regarded game almost two decades after it was originally launched back in 1998. While most of the world has moved on to Starcraft 2 and its two expansion packs, the original is still being played by many gamers in net cafes all across North Korea to this day. Considering its popularity, it should be no surprise that many gamers are just dying to see a remake of Blizzard’s highly acclaimed title and rumor has it that we might see that happen sooner rather than later.
The latest word on the street is that Blizzard is already working on Starcraft HD and is preparing to launch the new version in September. This is according to the folks over at Korean website iNews24 (via Kotaku), who claim that sources close to the developer can confirm that the game is indeed coming next month. The source also mentions that Starcraft HD will feature the same gameplay we all know and love from the original, however, the resolution and user interface are said to have been improved.
Although this might end up being just a rumor and should be taken with a pinch of salt, we do know that Blizzard has been thinking for some time now about adding its legacy games to the Battle.net client. It’s possible that the company is planning to actually add remastered version of its older games when it finally decides to introduce them to the client, but again, take this with a pinch of salt until an official announcement has been made.
