More Than $100 Mil Spent For StarCraft Sequel

Publisher Activision Blizzard is expecting its upcoming real-time strategy game StarCraft II to be a significant long-term success for the company — and developer Blizzard has so much faith in the game that it has reportedly spent more than $100 million on it over the course of its production.

“There is no shortage of consumers for StarCraft,” Kotick said. “For a game that is more than ten years old, there’s millions of people still playing it.” StarCraft launched in 1998, and along with its Brood War expansion has sold more than 11 million units worldwide on PC.
