Blizzard has announced that their next major release will be the sequel to StarCraft, which sold 9.5 million copies. No release date was announced but it was revealed that the game would be available for Mac and PC but probably not for consoles.
StarCraft II will remain a real-time strategy game and will see the return of the Protoss, Terran and Zerg with better mechanics and several new units. There will be a single player campaign and multiplayer over Battle.net.
"We recognize that expectations are high following the long-running popularity of the original game, but we plan to meet those expectations and deliver an engaging, action-packed, competitive experience..." said Blizzard co-founder Mike Morhaime.
