StarCraft Universe Launches Kickstarter to Fund Development

Posted on August 12, 2013 AT 01:15pm

StarCraft Universe, a Blizzard-sanctioned StarCraft 2 mod that turns the game into an MMO, has launched a Kickstarter campaign for $80,000 in development funds.

“While Blizzard is not directly affiliated with this project’s production, we do communicate with them to submit bug reports and make technical requests,” the developers wrote on the Kickstarter posting. “They have given their blessing/permission for us to launch this Kickstarter, and they are supporting our efforts by featuring SCU as an Arcade Highlight.”

StarCraft Universe is set 11 years after Wings of Liberty. Both the Terran and the Protoss will be playable races when the StarCraft 2 mod launches.
