Starcraft 2 on console 'a possibility', says Blizzard... but no plans yet

But PS3 or 360 release is 'not on our radar right now', says lead designer

The lead designer of Starcraft 2 has told CVG that Blizzard may take the game to console in future.

Chris Sigaty said that the move wouldn't happen anytime soon - but it was something that the developer was interested in exploring.

"Console is not on the radar for us right now, but there have been a lot of interesting moves in that direction - taking RTS to consoles - and there's been some pretty cool things on the control side," he told CVG.

"I still think that at least from our perspective it feels like the mouse and keyboard just lends itself to this style - but you know we're getting closer and closer all the time. So when we see that optimum moment I think it's certainly possible that we'll explore that junction as well. It's just not on the radar right now."

Sony previously demo'd the power of PS3 Move by controlling a game of Starcraft at GDC.

Blizzard this month confirmed Starcraft's release date as July 27.
