Blizzard's ill-fated console spin-off, StarCraft: Ghost, has been "indefinitely postponed" since 2006, thought not technically canceled. And while I was never personally a big fan of the way StarCraft: Ghost played—I played it at two E3s long ago—this fan-made concept art makes me want it.

This is the student work of artist Paul Hyun Woo Kwon, "Shiramune" on deviantArt. He set about redesigning and re-imagining Ghost star Nova and a few of her Terran allies for an art class project last year. So don't get any ideas that Blizzard is now reviving the StarCraft: Ghost project just yet—they still have Diablo III, more StarCraft II and an all-new MMO to knock out.

But Kwon did do an internship at Blizzard Entertainment last year, so maybe his talents helped spark some interest in getting Ghost back on track.

Kwon's take on StarCraft: Ghost imagines it as an Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 game, a third-person shooter more than the stealth game originally planned for the GameCube, Xbox and PlayStation 2.

See more of Kwon's impressive artwork, from StarCraft and beyond, at his deviantArt account.

So it was false news that Microsoft pissed off Blizzard which canceled SCG?? It was either a kiss and make up if true or World of Warcraft was better in the eyes of Blizzard.
