World of Starcraft: Blizzard Speaks Out

World of Starcraft: Blizzard Speaks Out

Gamasutra is reporting that Blizzard Entertainment has issued a statement regarding the World of Starcraft mod being developed by Ryan Winzen. Winzen's mod drew scrutiny from Blizzard and its parent company, Activision, when the modder posted a 'work in progress' video on YouTube. The video was pulled when Blizzard invoked its copyright protection. Since then, Winzen has received a job offer from Riot Games and a lot of attention from the worldwide gaming audience.

"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.
