Blizzard Denies Milking StarCraft II

Edge Online has a Q&A with Blizzard's Bob Colayco about the revelation that StarCraft II will be released as three different products. Bob flatly denies that this is a pernicious effect of the Activision Blizzard merger and also decries accusations they are trying to milk the science fiction RTS franchise: "Activision doesn’t really factor in, because ultimately the people calling the shots on how this game is going to turn out is the StarCraft II dev team. This trilogy decision was really made by that team. Effectively, what are we really talking about here? We’ve always done our RTS games with one expansion pack. So now we’re releasing two. Is it really that weird?"

expansions are add-ons to a FULL game.. not piecemeal portions of one FULL game

I don't get people's obsessions with having single player campaigns from every race. Instead of 10 terran missions, 10 zerg missions, and 10 toss missions, you get 30 terran missions with the first installment of SCII.

Were you also upset that Lord of the Rings was released as three separate movies instead of one? Splitting up the content is fine if there's enough content - and so far there's no indication that Blizz is cutting back on quality or quantity.

but i really dont give a fuck TBH, starcraft was ok - but ive never been a big fan of RTS in general.. in fact i rather dislike the genre

Right. You just love to whine about things that you don't care or know anything about.
