Starcraft II has been in development since 2003, but has been put on hold several times due to re-allocation of resources and the development team's dogmatic persistence to uphold the idea "it will ship when it's ready".
Speaking with Strategy Informer earlier today however, Blizzards Executive Managing Director of International Operations Michael Ryder said that he hopped players won't have to wait "too long" for the two expansions to come out.
"Our overall philosophy will always be that we don't want to ship a game before it's ready to go so we'll ship them when they're ready," he said.
"But I think our aspiration is that it would be ready... even though we don't have any dates to announce, we don't expect players to have to wait too long."
The expansions are currently under the working titles of Zerg: Heart of the Swarm and Protoss: Legacy of the Void, however no further official details are known at this point.
Stay tuned for more news and the full transcript of Strategy Informer's Starcraft 2 interview.
