StarCraft 2: Wings of Liberty Summary
Moving forward with plans issued a long while ago now, Blizzard have re-confirmed that legacy operating system support for more modern titles like StarCraft II, Diablo III and World of Warcraft will cease in the coming months.
The StarCraft II esports scene may not be quite as big as it once was, but Blizzard are still trying to reinvigorate it - but funding a tournament in a similar fashion to Valve's DotA 2.
We haven't heard all that much about Blizzard's plans to remaster the original StarCraft since the reveal earlier this year. Rather, fans have just been taking any mention of past Blizzard games as confirmation of them recieving the same treatment.
With 3 full campaigns, a huge mod scene with the 'Arcade', co-op missions and incredibly intricate online play, StarCraft II is one of the best supported RTS titles around. It's space-opera story has come to a close, so it's time for additional content patches to focus on small extras and balance changes. We're going to start highlighting them down below for however long it takes Blizzard to decide it wants to throw out StarCraft III before Warcraft IV.
With a dwindling eSports scene and Blizzard long making it clear that Legacy of the Void was the final expansion, Starcraft 2 is, essentially, done. Though still needing a team to keep the cogs rolling on minor new content, it hardly needs to tie down one of the company's most prolific designers.
