StarCraft 2 is StarCraft MMO?

StarCraft 2 is StarCraft MMO? - Image 1How would you feel if we tell you that the newly-confirmed title from Blizzard Entertainment, StarCraft 2, is not going to be a real time strategy (RTS) game just like its predecessor, but an MMORPG one?

We know your heads are reeling right now because most fans feel like StarCraft is StarCraft, the ultimate RTS title of its time. One can't fix what ain't broke. The rumor started from online video game site Computer and Video Games, saying that its "well-placed U.S. sources" have informed them that StarCraft MMO will be revealed at an upcoming Blizzard event on May 19 in South Korea.

We don't know about CVG's sources but there is indeed an event in SoKor later this month - Blizzard World Invitational. If we are to believe CVG's report, we should all stop calling the new title StarCraft 2 because it's not a sequel. The site's "well-placed U.S. sources" added that it's going to be an MMo spin-off.

Also, we have to keep in mind that StarCraft already has an installed fan base. What happens now to World of Warcraft (WoW) and the rest of the MMO genre? Two Blizzard title battling it out for the top spot? It may sound like golden chimes to Blizzard but not necessarily for fans.

We guess we have to wait until May 19. En Taro Adun! (Yay for... World of Starcraft! -ed.)
