Blizzard not milking StarCraft 2, money was 'never part of the conversation'

Blizzard not milking StarCraft 2, money was 'never part of the conversation' photo



According to Blizzard COO Paul Sams, Blizzard isn’t trying to tickle your pocketbooks by splitting StarCraft 2 into three individual games. In a recent interview with Videogamer, Sams defended the decision by noting that money was never a “part of the conversation.” It was done to provide a “better experience” for the consumer.

From the interview:

I guarantee it. I give my word. There was never, ever a conversation where we said, ‘let’s do this because we’re going to make more money’. I guarantee it. As a matter of fact the sole reason we did it was because we thought it was going to be a better experience. Anybody that says otherwise is not correct. It is absolutely not what we did it for.
While I congratulate Sams for being so blunt, I find it particularly hard to believe that the faces around the boardroom didn’t light up when the idea of splitting the title was being thrown around. Regardless, I have high hopes and I’m starting to buy into the fact that three StarCraft 2s isn’t a bad thing. What do you guys think?
