StarCraft II: Release Schedule For Game & Expansions
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Joystiq has posted comments from Blizzard Entertainment's Rob Pardo about the recently announced three game storyline for the upcoming StarCraft II. The Blizzard VP revealed the company's tentative plans to release one title each year and discussed pricing strategy for the game and its expansions.

With the announcement about Starcraft 2 being a trilogy, do we know how long it'll be between releases?
We don't know yet, because we don't even know when the first game is getting released yet. I think there's some feeling out there that because we're treating each of the campaigns as almost like separate products, that people have somehow confused that into they're going to be separate products. In a lot of ways, you should think about the follow-ups as being kind of expansion sets to the original. It's just that the campaigns are not going to feel like expansions, they're going to feel like full, independent stories.
So, you know with any luck, it would be like a year for each successive one, but that's going to be a target date, that's not a promise.

Do you know what the pricing on it will be? People are bristling at the thought of having to pay for a game three times.
We would do the retail price based on the value that we're putting in the box. So, if the value in the box is less than the original, then we're going to price it like that. We're not just trying to get people to pay full price for something that's less, if the followups end up having the feature set of an expansion, then that's how they'll get priced.
