Blizzard Won’t Stop World of StarCraft Mod

On Wednesday we discussed news of an impressive-looking mod for StarCraft II that transformed the game into a WoW lookalike, which quickly drew a copyright infringement warning from Activision Blizzard. The company has now released an official statement green-lighting the mod for continued development. “‘It was never our intention to stop development on the mod or discourage the community from expressing their creativity through the StarCraft II editor,’ Blizzard said in a statement. ‘As always, we actively encourage development of custom maps and mods for StarCraft II, as we’ve done with our strategy games in the past.’ Blizzard went on the say that it’s looking forward to seeing development of the mod continue, and that it has invited Winzen to the company’s campus to meet the game’s development team.”
