A number of veteran Blizzard developers who helped shape Warcraft, StarCraft, and other legendary franchises opted to pack their things last year to form a new independent studio dubbed Frost Giant. Perhaps unsurprisingly, production director and CEO Tim Morten has confessed in a recent interview with gaming outlet Op Attack that the mysterious title that his team was working on would be inspired by iconic games such as Warcraft III and StarCraft: Brood War. Morten also clarified that the title, which would serve as an “evolution” of Blizzard’s games, would likely be exclusive to PC due to the nature of RTS.

Q: Your team has a lot of veterans who worked on Blizzard games specially, StarCraft. Do you guys plan to deviate from StarCraft essence with novel ideas or the new game will take inspiration from Blizzard’s Strategy game?

Tim Morten: We very much want to build a game that feels like an evolution of Blizzard RTS games, but our influences will include Warcraft III, Brood War, and StarCraft II. We expect to be as different as those games are to each other.
