During the GameCube, PlayStation 2 and original Xbox generation in 2002, Blizzard was working on an all-format third-person shooter known as Starcraft: Ghost. The game experienced a bumpy development cycle and the GameCube version was cancelled in 2004. This followed with the project being completely axed in 2014, well after this particular generation.
Now, nearly two decades later, leaked footage of an early Xbox build has leaked online. While this might not be footage of Starcraft: Ghost running on the GameCube, we imagine it would have looked quite similar on Nintendo and Sony's platform if it had seen the light of day. While much of the leaked footage has already been taken down, there are still a few clips online (view this while you can):
As you can see, it's a pretty standard-looking third-person shooter. Still, it would have been a nice change of pace from Blizzard's main offerings at the time. Below are some additional screenshots of the Xbox version, supplied by the Twitter user who contacted Kotaku about the leak.
Is this a game you were anticipating back in the day? What do you think of the above footage and screenshots? Share your thoughts below.
