StarCraft II Trisected

The big news today out of BlizzCon is that StarCraft II is being divided into Terrans: Wings of Liberty, Zerg: Heart of the Swarm, and Protoss: Legacy of the Void, three separate standalone campaigns that will be sold separately, each highlighting one of the game's races, with the decision to subdivide the real-time strategy sequel said to be the alternative to either delaying or scaling back the release. Shacknews quotes Blizzard's Rob Pardo saying the second and third games "will be like expansion packs, but we really want them to feel like standalone products." Word is the Zerg campaign will emphasize RPG elements, the Protoss campaign will focus on diplomacy, and the Terran campaign will also feature a Protoss mini-campaign. Shacknews also offers a couple of cut-scenes, one fully rendered, and the other using the game engine.
