Starcraft has a huge fanbase and will sell well, however it is not that much of a cash cow like wow where you have to pay monthly subscription fees.
Starcraft is more like, pay once and play years without any DLC there is not so much money to make.
The most interesting thing in the following months will be the Starcraft release AND i want to know the numbers of active wow subscribers. If these figures are declining it's time to go short.
There is not much in the pipeline for 2013 for ATVI.
Maybe another Diablo Add-On to generate some revenue?
We will se.
The release date is already out and has been for almost a month. The release date is March 12th, 2013. You can verify this on Amazon if you would like. Those who preordered got beta keys when this release date was confirmed.
What? Only 1 month since Beta Started. C'mon now. They plan to release Mac version April. then close it in May.
Maybe they'll release it summer in June or July. I am guessing July since Warcraft 3 and Warcraft 3 Frozen Throne were released July 3rd. Since most SC2 team are WC3 team so I won't be surprised they aim for that July 3rd date.
