Real-time strategy classic StarCraft is to receive the HD remaster treatment, according to Korean news site iNews24.

The outlet states it has received word from multiple sources that a new version of the game, with higher-resolution graphics and an improved UI, is in the works.

Gameplay will reportedly behave identically to that of the 1998 original.

According to the report, the remaster would be officially announced in September, with a full reveal at Activision Blizzard's BlizzCon event in November.

Given that September will also contain the StarCraft 2 World Championship Series finals, it seems likely an announcement could take place at that event.

Even today, nearly 20 years after its release, StarCraft is still one of the 10 most-played games at Korean internet cafes.

A re-release of StarCraft would fit with Blizzard's recent staff hires for revamping old titles, as well as the tweaked versions of Diablo II and WarCraft III released in March.

The StarCraft 2 WCS finals take place between September 10th and 11th in Mexico City.
