Blizzard didn’t spend $100 million making StarCraft II

Recommended Videos

Last week, we reported — based on an article by the Wall Street Journal — that StarCraft II cost $100 million to develop. This is not true. The WSJ has since issued a correction, saying that the figure actually related to World of Warcraft, not StarCraft II.

Well then, how much did it cost to make? Unfortunately for curious minds, it seems as if this will be another one of those secrets to be taken to the grave. Blizzard was quick to point out that it “has never disclosed the development cost of StarCraft II, and for competitive reasons, we will not do so.”

So, there you go. Erase this incorrect tidbit from your memory.

Alternate title: “Blizzard wants to cut a b*tch over $100 million story.”
