What will happen
with StarCraft 2
October won't be remembered for death by StarCraft 2 fansgames. The project will continue to live, but Blizzard will no longer release paid add-ons. The game will continue to be supported by balancing patches and season updates.
Esports tournaments will also continueexist since Blizzard recently turned over competition management to ESL and DreamHack. Yet the company will continue to maintain the tournament prize pool for about three more years.
