Blizzard drops bombshell and says the Starcraft sequel is now three separate games. Each game will be a race's separate campaign, in order to delve deeply into the Star craft universe. I call $$$ whoring. I demand a boycott if each game is 60$

Diablo 3 - Wizzard class added. Vid.

Fuck the Warcraft universe. Look that up yourself if you care about it.

And no brand new games announced. Lets make everything that was old, old again.

Also, keep further updates here.

I support this boycott UNLESS each game is an entire full game included, around 12-hours worth of campaign and hundreds more replay hours. But only if.

Well, there's a 0% chance of that happening, since PC games are $50...

Like it would matter. You know that each part of the game will probably be better than the competition. It's just going to end up delivering more content faster.

BEST CASE SCENARIO (as I see it):

Blizzards releases all three campaigns simultaneous at $25ish each and complete trilogy for $65ish, with each campaign containing 10+ hours of singleplayer gameplay. All things considered, it would simply be a strategy to get multiplayer into people's hands for less money (since each installment includes the complete multiplayer experience).

Unfortunately (and more realistically), it'll probably be closer to $40 each and more like 10 hours maximum of gameplay on the first play-through.

I can dream.

They've gone too far. Starcraft 2 is now fail.

Just wait, soon there'll be World Of Starcraft and they'll do exactly what they did to Warcraft.

The WarCraft RTS series is fucking awesome, the only game in the WarCraft universe that sucks is WoW.

and yet you have no proof to back this up, for all you know this could be a rumor.
