Anyone remember the name StarCraft: Ghost? The game was announced back in 2002 before getting effectively cancelled in 2006. Now, over a decade later, it looks like a development build of the game has leaked online.
The leaks themselves have reportedly been around for a month prior. They came into prominence after Twitter user Andrew Borman shared some screenshots from the leaked dev build. The build itself also reportedly came from an Xbox dev kit, made to run on a modded Xbox 360.

Since then, there have been a number of videos showing off StarCraft: Ghost gameplay. Many of the videos have been taken down, and it won’t be surprising if the others follow suit in time.
But from what can be seen, it appears to be a pretty bog standard third-person shooter with a StarCraft skin over it. For its time, its graphics would’ve been average. Suffice to say that it hasn’t aged very well.
StarCraft: Ghost was supposed to tell the story of Nova, a Terran Ghost agent, four years after the main game’s Brood War expansion. Due to the cancellation, we’ll never know what the overarching plot would’ve been like.
