    PROJECT BLACKSTONE - Online

    Project Blackstone has now gone online, as posted by SteelSeries' Facebook page.
    It is Starcraft-related.

    http://www.projectblackstone.com/

    SteelSeries also gave out this password:
    Y7_$0>0k_3<$m


    Could this be a prelude to PROJECT TITAN, or is it just to hype us for HotS?


    It mentions Zerg experiments and the Dominion, but I've only skimmed it through so far.


    My theories:

    A) This is just a website to build lore and hype us before HotS is out.

    B) This is an attempt to expand the lore of Starcraft and the events coming in HotS. Ultimately, this might be a prelude to PROJECT TITAN. Why, you ask? Well, events do seem to indicate that the Hybrids and/or Zerg will destroy the Terran Dominion eventually - either directly by Mengsk and his Project Blackstone, or as a consequence of the other races trying to bring him down and put and end to his reign.

    From the StarCraft wiki:

    "By the outbreak of the next phase of war,[75] Mengsk was still in a position of power in the Dominion. He remained the focus of Kerrigan's desire for revenge.[76] At some point, he gave personal approval to the selection of the scientists who would become part of Project Blackstone."[77]

    "Project Blackstone is a Terran Dominion research project, focused on zerg research. It is led by Dr. Helek Branamoor."[1]

    What if the ongoing war and Project Blackstone will lead to the fall of the Terran, causing humanity to enter a sort of post-modern steampunk era. This could be the setting of Project Titan - mankind's coping with the aftermath of the war.

    "Good morning!" said Bilbo, and he meant it. The sun was shining, and the grass was very green. But Gandalf looked at him from under long bushy eyebrows that stuck out farther than the brim of his shady hat.

    The address contains SC2 so am I unsure if it has anything to do with Titan.

    no one ever said titan was an RPG, just an MMO. it could be MMOmanythings.

    SC2 related...

    And it says SC2 all over the place in the source.

    Pretty bad-ass looking. I've read elsewhere that it's affiliated with Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm though, not Titan.

    And please tell me you cracked that password yourself, haha.

    Using metzen as the password just makes it talk about location, nothing else happens.

    There is no confirmation that Titan will be fantasy mmo, might as well be sci-fi or steampunk. Right now we can only guess, not hard evidence has been leaked so far.

    That is irrelevant, and yes I know this is SC2-related. I said so in my second sentence.

    What I mean is, this kind of website has never launched for Starcraft in the past.

    This could either be:

    a) Most likely; a website to hype us for the release of HotS, or
    b) Unlikely, but not impossible; something to draw from the Stacraft-universe but expand into something new.

    Project Titan could be our re-colonization of space, after the Zerg or Hybrids have destroyed us all.
    It could be our way of coping after a 'great collapse' - hence the Steampunkisk artwork we've seen by one of its lead artists.

    FYI:

    I got the password from SteelSeries on Facebook. They posted that Blackstone was now online, and included the password. It's safe, lol.

    cool find, obviously starcraft related.

    Too cool for a signature

    Intruiging, also fun that it talks about the ghosts etc. Maybe a reboot to Starcraft: Ghost? (one can dream right?)

    Possibilites in order of likelyhood, in my opinion:

    1. Site to hype up next expansion
    2. Reboot of Starcraft: Ghost
    3. Titan is Starcraft based(highly unlikely)
    I really like christmas. It's sentimental, I know... But I just really like it.

    You went back and edited your original post, you sly dog you. You never said anything about it being SC2-related the first time!

    I'd say it's just something to hype the release of HoTS; if anything, I think Titan would be an intermediary series that takes place in between WoW and Starcraft and not a continuation of Starcraft.

    A black soulstone from Diablo has somehow entered the Starcraft universe?

    Interesting...

    While it's true I went back and edited my OP, the StarCraft bit was in there all along. This I swear.

    And as for your theory; please elaborate? Do you propose that SC and WC are in the same universe?

    I don't know what project titan will be but looking at how frigging great sc, diablo, warcraft has been I'm making a bold claim that this will be a very good game.

    Looks like some sort of viral campaign to promote the release of SC2: HotS.
