Just when you think you're out, they pull you back in.

Blizzard has only gone and teased us with the news that StarCraft Ghost is still a game that "some day" they'd "like to do".

"I think the idea is still perfectly viable," Blizzard's Alex Mayberry told Videogamer. "I don't know if we'll ever do it but I think it's something we'd like to do."

"When we set out to do it originally we were GameCube, PS2 and Xbox," Mayberry explained, "and after we shelved that I used to say that at that time we were very ready to make a Blizzard game on consoles but those consoles weren't ready for a Blizzard game. We just couldn't quite get what we wanted to do just because of those machines at the time."

When asked if the news consoles - Xbox One and PS4 - were ready to provide Blizzard with the hardware needed to make the game that they want Mayberry said: "I don't know. Maybe some day we'll take another look at that but I don't think it'll be any time soon. I think it's an idea that still lives inside the halls of Blizzard."

StarCraft Ghost was set to be a stealth-action title for consoles, but the project never saw the light of day, prompting years of speculation. Two years ago Blizzard said the game was not likely, but lead designer Dustin Browder did add: "It doesn't mean that in two years from now, we won't have those meetings, the team won't be formed."

Our advice, don't hold your breath.
