Kotaku Article - Blizzard Cancels StarCraft First-Person Shooter to Focus on Diablo and Overwatch
According to a new article on Kotaku, rumor has it Blizzard canceled a StarCraft first-person shooter that has been in development for the past two years. Click the banner below to read the full article and Blizzard's response to it.


  • The cancellation was made in order to focus on Diablo 4 and Overwatch 2.
  • The canceled project was code-named Ares.
  • It was described as being similar to the Battlefield franchise, but in the StarCraft Universe.
  • According to sources, it was a massive shock that Blizzard canceled it as it was "looking quite good."
  • Nobody has been laid off as a result of the cancellation, but moved to the upcoming Diablo 4 and Overwatch 2.
  • Diablo 4 and Overwatch 2 are expected to be announced at Blizzcon in the fall.
  • Overwatch 2 is rumored to have a large PvE element, and has been compared to Left 4 Dead.
  • Ares started as an experiment to do something with StarCraft on the Overwatch engine.
  • Blizzard has wanted to move as many games as possible to the same technology as the Overwatch engine to be more efficient.
  • Dustin Browder, who led Heroes of the Storm and StarCraft II, was supposed to be the director of the project.

    Another StarCraft game cancelled.. seems unlikely but hey you never know.

    Could've been really cool though. I was quite looking forward to another SC title.

    Too bad ... the SC idea sounds more interesting than an OW2

    How could i ever doubt blizzard would not want to create another group brawler game?

    So they plan to reveal D4, O2 and WoW 9.0 at same year? It would make huuuge Blizzcon. Last year we only had Reforged and mobile Diablo (they still plan to release it?).

    Isn't Overwatch less than five years old? Why does it need a sequel?

    And D3 was terrible so I have no interest in D4. Glad this is what they've been using their "biggest developer team ever" for.

    I wonder if when they say Diablo 4 they really mean Diablo Immortal lol

    it might be an expansion if anything, sorta like what diablo and starcraft have done

    or exactly how hots did "hots 2.0"

    Yea... sure... like... when someone knew what blizz is developing... its like saying HL3 is in the making. Sure it is, but nobody outside of that team can prove it.

    It really hurts me. Iam wondering what kind of shooter they were looking...a battle royal where the three races try to control a territory? would it include vehicles? Can i enter a Goliath and kill everyone ?

    The potential of such game is FAR MORE INTERESTING than a Overwatch 2. What can I expect from overwatch 2? story mode? group vs ai content? create your own hero????

    they say it would be like battle field, thats all... issue with these rumors is its always insanely vague.

    As excited as I am for Diablo 4 and a story based Overwatch, I'd have absolutely loved to play a Battlefield like Starcraft game...

    First Starcraft: Ghost and now this

    Classic has nothing to do with this, though.

    That's kinda sad to hear. FPS Starcraft could have been interesting. Much more interesting than D4 or OW2.
