According to reports, Blizzard has cancelled an unannounced StarCraft-themed first-person shooter that had been in development for the past two years – so that it can focus its efforts on Diablo 4 and Overwatch 2.

The news comes via a report by Kotaku’s Jason Schreier, whose sources claim that Blizzard’s unannounced project, codenamed Ares, was “like Battlefield in the StarCraft universe”. Early development prototypes were reportedly “looking quite good”, with players taking on the role of a Terran marine in battle against Zerg forces.

Ares is said to have entered production back in 2017, with Heroes of the Storm director and StarCraft II lead designer Dustin Browder heading up development.
