Are there plans to repackage SC1 and broodwar as remastered/resulution and graphics updated?... I would like to re-live the saga of the old game in hi res...

This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet.

Sorry, I totally dig what your asking for, but I think this question doesn't belong here. –  Ivo Flipse Aug 18 '10 at 8:57
I think we can let it slide re-tagged. –  ioSamurai Aug 18 '10 at 13:21
@Ivo Flipse: This is neither argumentative nor subjective. It is a simple yes/no question with a definitive answer. –  StrixVaria Aug 18 '10 at 13:28
I can only refer you to this related discussion on Meta, where I argue that we shouldn't speculate, since they have no value if there's no positive answer. The fact that yours has an answer, doesn't change that –  Ivo Flipse Aug 18 '10 at 14:25
Voting to close this as too localized, since this question isn't dealing with a game that has already been released and if ever such a game comes out this question will become obsolete. Like Ivo, I'm interested in this as well but I just don't think it's a good fit for the site's format. –  Mana Aug 10 '11 at 11:02

The only thing I know of is the Starcraft Reborn project, which attempts to let players replay the original Starcraft on the Starcraft 2 engine; but it seems that

  1. That project does not intend to 100% faithfully clone the old Starcraft campaign, they want to change/add some missions.
  2. That project is still in its infancy.

Also be aware that many multiplayer sc1 maps are converted to sc2, though I guess that's not what you are asking about.

I was wondering if there was a third party project for this, very cool. It just doesn't make any sense on so many levels that Blizzard would do this. –  ioSamurai Aug 18 '10 at 13:28

Blizzard has announced no such plans.

More lovely to have an official link –  Nam G VU Aug 8 '11 at 13:49
@NamGiVU How can I link to an article Blizzard didn't release? –  StrixVaria Aug 8 '11 at 14:19
Oh, I guess I misunderstood your term 'announce' - thought you read it somewhere on the net. How to trust your statement now? –  Nam G VU Aug 10 '11 at 9:38
@Nam Strix didn't say that Blizzard HAS no such plans, just that they haven't announced them. If there was an announcement about it, then it would almost certainly be covered all over the internet. If you look around and find a credible citation that indicates otherwise, then please post it here. If you can find no such sources, then you have to assume that Strix is correct. –  Dave McClelland Aug 10 '11 at 12:20
@Dave Thanks. I'll post the citation whenever possible on my posts. –  Nam G VU Oct 1 '11 at 13:49
