StarCraft: Ghost - Nova Novel a Reality
At the back of the Diablo: Moon of the Spider Novel is a page officially advertising the upcoming StarCraft: Ghost - Nova novel. There is no release date, however it is stated as "Coming Soon" and is the official prequel to the upcoming game.
You know, I realized last week that StarCraft: Ghost, the game, was announced back in September 2002 and has yet to be released. It was announced when the Xbox was less than a year old, and now the Xbox is on its way out and the game still hasn't hit shelves. In fact, it's been delayed numerous times, switched development teams, dropped a supported platform, and might even have had a graphic engine switch.
Anyway, the point is that this game has been in development for about 3.5 years now, so when it is released if it isn't outright amazing, it's gonna be slammed hard. I also find it amusing that we may even get the prequel novel before the actual game.
