The whole internet is ablaze with passionate enthusiasm after J. Allen Brack told Gamasutra there’s definitely a console game within Blizzard’s hands at some point, however it depends on what game makes the most sense to develop for the console — excluding RTS games or multiple-button UI games such as World of Warcraft. Will it be Starcraft: Ghost resurrection or something based on the three main franchises or something entirely new?
|“Think about StarCraft II,” says Brack. “Some real-time strategy games have tried to happen on the console. Some of those have been successful, but overall, our experience is that it’s going to be a better game on the PC, ergo it’s developed on the PC.”
Same with WoW, Brack adds, a game developed for the PC and with a PC-centric control scheme. “But we’re a company of gamers,” he says. “I have two consoles at home. Sam has consoles. We’re a culture of gamers. We will definitely work on a console game at some point. I have no doubt about that. It’s just [a matter of] what game. What makes the most sense?”
Blizzard, I am disappoint.
Okay, I’m not a PC supremacist (okay a bit, but console gaming isn’t bad) but Blizzard’s style doesn’t work for consoles. With how long this generation is lasting, it would be the best bet, but they might be a little late.
They should put their old games on the Wii’s Virtual Console.
