Blizzard will stop developing content for StarCraft 2, the company announced.
While new content will no longer be produced for StarCraft 2, Blizzard will continue to support the game in the same manner as with previous longstanding games.
The team will switch to primarily focusing on what “core and competitive communities care about most,” (thanks MassivelyOP).
“What this means is that we’re not going to be producing additional for-purchase content, such as Commanders and War Chests, but we will continue doing season rolls and necessary balance fixes moving forward,” reads the open letter to the community.
“On that last note, we’re not planning a Q4 balance update given that we did one a few months ago, but as always, we do plan to continue doing them as needed in the future. StarCraft 2 esports, which is part of the highest echelon of professional competitive gaming, will also continue going strong as it has been through our partners ESL Gaming and GSL.”
Bizzard said ceasing development on the 10-year old title will free it up to think about what is next in regard to the StarCraft universe as a whole.
