Blizzard: Never our intention to stop World of Starcraft mod


Blizzard is claiming that it was "never our intention" to halt work on a fan-made World of Starcraft mod.

Blizzard’s stated it "was never (the team's) intention to stop development on the mod", and having the YouTube video pulled was standard legal procedure. Blizzard further explains, "We wanted to discuss the title of the mod with the developer, and as part of our routine procedure, we contacted YouTube to request the video be removed while that discussion took place."

Blizzard has invited the mod developer to their campus, "We’re looking forward to seeing the continued development of this mod, and as part of our ongoing discussion, we’ve extended an offer to the developer to visit the Blizzard campus and meet with the StarCraft II development team... As always, we actively encourage development of custom maps and mods for StarCraft II, … That’s why we release an editor with our RTS games, and why we feature top player-created content in the custom game search. It’s also why we held a contest to spotlight the best community-crafted StarCraft II mods at last year’s BlizzCon, and why we’ll continue to improve Battle.net to better showcase player-created content... As always, we appreciate all of the efforts of the talented and enthusiastic mod-making community, and we look forward to seeing and playing what they create using the StarCraft II editor in the future."

The World of Starcraft video made headlines when posted on YouTube a few days ago before being pulled. Some fans have mirrored the video.
