StarCraft: Ghost is a military science fiction stealth-action video game
under suspended development by Blizzard Entertainment. Part of
Blizzard's StarCraft series, the game was announced on September 20,
2002, and was to be developed by Nihilistic Software for the Nintendo
GameCube, Xbox, and PlayStation 2 video game consoles. Several delays in
development caused Blizzard to move back the release date and the game
has not yet materialized. Nihilistic Software ceded development to
Swingin' Ape Studios in 2004 before Blizzard bought the company, and
plans for the GameCube version were canceled in 2005. Blizzard announced
in March 2006 that the game is on "indefinite hold" while the company
investigated seventh generation video game console possibilities.
Subsequent public statements from company personnel have been
contradictory about whether production will be renewed or planned story
elements will be worked into other products.

Wikiquote quote of the day:
My own heroes are the dreamers, those men and women who tried to make
the world a better place than when they found it, whether in small ways
or great ones. Some succeeded, some failed, most had mixed results...
but it is the effort that's heroic, as I see it. Win or lose, I admire
those who fight the good fight.
--George R. R. Martin
