Report: StarCraft HD Remaster in Development

Report: StarCraft HD Remaster in Development

A remastered version of the original StarCraft could be in the works over at Blizzard, if a report from Korean news site iNews 24 (via Kotaku) is to be believed.

According to their sources, the game will sport a higher resolution and UI:

Today, multiple sources with knowledge of Blizzard internal plans said that Blizzard will reveal StarCraft HD to the public this September. The StarCraft HD remastered version will retain the original gameplay and is said to have improved graphics resolution and user interface (UI).

The source that leaked the information points out that September lines up with the StarCraft II World Championship Series ending. More details will supposedly surface during BlizzCon this November too.

The extent of the remaster is unknown – meaning we don’t know if it will use 2D sprites like the original, or have polygonal graphics like its sequel.

But will the Dragoons still get confused by ramps? Joking aside I'd be down for this depending how much they do with it but hopefully they do fix some of the pathing issues some of the units had and some other little things. Still if they do this could it be they might look at updating some of the others as well like Warcraft 2 and the original Diablo which I would really like to happen.

Hmm leaks aren't very common from blizzard. 20th anniversary of Diablo this year isn't it? Could it be one or the other or both in regards to the likelihood of a Diablo title announcement this year or Starcraft.

Oh man... if they remade the cinematics with their modern effects, and used the Starcraft 2 engine.... I think I might die from glee - really loved the first game, and it would make an epic four (or six)-part story to playthrough :)

Great news for Starcraft fans if it is the case. However I'm still holding out for a D1/D2 or Warcraft 1/2 remaster!

So much yes! How awesome would it be to get a Warcraft 1/2/3+expansions bundle, all remastered using the SC2 engine with new cinematic... all leading up to a Warcraft 4 announcement :P
