Starcraft Ghost Has Leaked! [VIDEO]

The long-cancelled Starcraft Ghost third-person action-stealth game had its Xbox build leaked…

Nearly two decades ago, Blizzard was working on a third-person action game, which was set in the Starcraft universe. Starcraft Ghost, complete with some stealth elements, was in development for the sixth generation of consoles, the PlayStation 2, the Xbox, and the GameCube. The 2002-announced game was put on indefinite hold in March 2006. (They should have cancelled it then and there – by then, the Xbox 360 was available from the 7th generation, and the PlayStation 3 and the Wii was getting close to launch as well…) In 2014, the game got officially cancelled, but we don’t understand why Blizzard waited for this much to do so…

„Four years after the end of the Brood War, Emperor Arcturus Mengsk has rebuilt much of the Terran Dominion and consolidated a new military force despite an ever-present alien threat. Within this boiling cauldron of strife and subversion, a young woman known only as Nova shows the potential to become Mengsk’s most lethal and promising “Ghost” operative. Utilizing a combination of pure physical aptitude, innate psychic power, and advanced technology, Nova can strike anywhere with the utmost stealth. Like a phantom in the shadows, she exists only as a myth to the enemies of the Terran Dominion.

Yet Nova wasn’t born a killer. She was once a privileged child of one of the Old Families of the Terran Confederacy, but her life changed forever when a rebel militia murdered her family. In her grief, Nova unleashed her devastating psychic powers, killing hundreds in a single, terrible moment. Now, on the run through the slums of Tarsonis, she is unable to trust anyone. Pursued by a special agent tasked with hunting down rogue telepaths, Nova must come to terms with both her burgeoning powers and her guilt — before they consume her and destroy everything in her path…”, Keith R. A. DeCandido’s November 2006-released book’s synopsis says. The book, called Nova, was based on the background story of Starcraft Ghost.

The game, based on the plot synopsis, could have been excellent, and it seems like an alpha development Xbox build has popped up! The following images have been taken from Twitter, but Blizzard’s game can also be seen on a YouTube video below as well!

Let’s hope Blizzard won’t pull the usual cease-and-desist card – since they will probably never return to work on this game, they should allow this build to be available to the public…
