WSJ: StarCraft II Cost More Than $100M

The Wall Street Journal (subscription required) has an interesting game budget tidbit about StarCraft II, saying: "Blizzard's parent company, Activision Blizzard, has spent more than $100 million developing the computer-based game." Thanks GameSpot where they note that this figure represents development costs, and does not include the marketing budget for the real-time strategy sequel.

At this point, I think they're really overrating how popular this game is going to be.

If this bombs I'm going to be giddy.

To be honest PC gaming loses no matter what happens. If SCII does well then Blizzard's plans of a social network will most likely go ahead, if SCII bombs then publishers will again start saying PC gaming is dead and all that.

Can't see PC gaming winning from SCII no matter what.
