Starcraft II Will No Longer Have Paid Content Updates


Blizzard’s once titanic Starcraft franchise might be calling for curtains pretty soon.


On October 15th, Blizzard has announced that it will no longer be providing Starcraft II with any updates consisting of paid content.


The genre of RTS, which at one point held the throne for the most popular esport, has almost disappeared entirely in terms of wide-market appeal.


Releasing content for its popular Co-op Commander mode by introducing new characters people can play as has been one of their most successful ventures in recent years.


Additionally, they released Warchests, which was more honed toward competitive players to unlock cosmetics for their ladder games.


Although we can expect balance patches coming down the line for SC2, I think it’s safe to say that Blizzard is effectively shutting down the active development of this ageing giant.
