StarCraft II Will No Longer Receive New Paid Content As Blizzard Considers "What's Next"
Blizzard will no longer produce additional paid content for StarCraft II. In a letter to fans, Executive Producer Rob Bridenbecker said that development wouldn't stop entirely but that his team would be "focusing primarily on what our core and competitive communities care about most." There will still be "season rolls and necessary balance fixes," though there won't be a Q4 balance patch.
Bridenbecker acknowledged that this move would disappoint some players but it would also "free us up to think about what's next, not just with regard to StarCraft II, but for the StarCraft universe as a whole." If that's not a soft announcement of a sequel, I don't know what is.
