Starcraft 2 support is going away

Games People Play is where to discuss personal computer, video game console, and arcade hardware and software - be it RPG, Sim, Strategy, Fighting, Action/Platform, or any other category. Although discussion of modern platforms/software will most likely dominate, discussion of classic videogame/computer hardware and software is always enjoyable, and certainly welcome - ESPECIALLY since there are public domain/shareware emulators of nearly every older computer/console available these days. Here's a taste of what awaits you: Nintendo-vs-Sega-vs-Sony, Console-vs-PC-vs-Mac, Hardware spec sheets/information, Industry news and discussion, Software reviews, IRC conference announcements/Reports, Emulators, Emulators, Emulators! ... and much, much more!

Shame. I was big into SC1 back when I was a kid. It's sad to see SC2 go without SC3 in the works.

That doesn't say they'll stop supporting it though, just that there will be no more new paid content upgrades. In fact, they even mention they'll continue doing quarterly updates and balances for "years to come".


That being said, you'd be hard pressed to find new games that go on as long as some of the classics like, say, Neverwinter Nights did/have.
