When asked if StarCraft: Ghost might one day be released, Burger said "maybe."

StarCraft: Ghost was one of Blizzard's first attempts to break into console gaming at the turn of the century. The spin-off was announced for Xbox, PlayStation 2, and GameCube in 2002, with development duties handed to Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified developer nStigate Games (nee Nihilistic Software). Development changed hands in 2004 to Swingin' Ape Studios, which was bought by Blizzard in 2005. StarCraft: Ghost was then put on hold in 2006.

StarCraft: Ghost's protagonist, Nova, has appeared in both Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty and Starcraft II: Heart of the Swarm.
