Joe's new game project update

Over at Joemadfan.com Nathen has announced that the new game Joe is currently working on is NOT Starcraft: Ghost. So this leads me to believe that the image Mad! did for blizzard was just a commission piece. Nathen is hoping to hear back from Joe Madureira himself very soon with possibly more information on what he's working on.

In site news... Today I have been thinking about bringing back the full version of my Joe Madureira! Fansite and have been looking into hosting and getting a domain name. I've got quite a bit of free time this summer so I can fill the site up with a lot of Joe Mad! goodies like images, interviews, checklists, and other related things. I'd love to hear from the fans about what other things you'd like to see on the site and if you think I should go forward with bringing my full site back. Feel free to leave comments below!

Joe Mad! and StarCraft: Ghost

Finally some Joe Mad news has arrived!

Over at the official Starcraft: Ghost website the current layout is using a picture by Joe Madureira! You can download the various sized wallpapers of it in their wallpaper section. Could Mad! be working for Blizzard Entertainment now instead of NCsoft?

Over at Joemadfan.com, Nathen was told that Joe Mad was indeed at this years E3 Expo and is planning on sending him some images from the new game he is working on.

There are many possibilities for what the new game he's working on is... maybe Joe was working for Swingin' Ape Studios that was recently bought by Blizzard (Plus they are the team working on Starcraft: Ghost)... or is he still with NCsoft? My personal bet is he is with Blizzard since his artwork is on the site and NCsoft hasn't announced any new games at E3 this week, but who knows maybe they just asked him for a commission.

In the end only time will tell and you'll hear about it here when I find out.
