Previous reports concerning a remaster of StarCraft and its release date turned out to be total bunk, so you may read this news of the game coming this year with heightened skepticism. It’s only March, however, so there is plenty of time for this to happen. The remaster should be near-identical to the original aside from higher-resolution graphics.

South Korean website Sports Seoul is reporting new rumors concerning a supposed remastered version of the original StarCraft that Blizzard would be preparing to launch this year. This new version would implement high resolution graphics and update the service, with the objective of promoting the game in eSports circles. The information would come from sources in the industry, that got a heads up from Blizzard itself during the past BlizzCon game festival in November. The details of this remaster would have been revealed only to personalities involved with eSports, such as broadcasters, sponsors and important stakeholders.
