Speaking at GamesCom 2011 in Cologne today, Blizzard has said it currently has no plans to even develop at StarCraft 2 MMO, claiming it is far too busy with other projects at the moment.

'We definitely feel like all the worlds we create would lend themselves well to multiple genres and multiple forms of media,' said Blizzard co-founder Frank Pearce, cagily.

'If there was a development team within Blizzard that was free and available to create a StarCraft MMO and that was something they were really passionate about then we would certainly consider it...But right now..., we've got our hands full with everything we're doing.'

'We don't really have any plans to do anything beyond the StarCraft RTSes and the expansions right now,' he clarified.

Blizzard is currently working on StarCraft: Heart of the Swarm, the Zerg-focused follow-up to StarCraft 2, plus World of WarCraft, Diablo 3 and the mysterious Project Titan.

StarCraft has a strong storyline to it, as the Old Rivals trailer below shows, though you'd need a heck of a lot of friends and clan members to really create a Zurg rush in a StarCraft MMO...
