StarCraft II Producer Chris Sigaty Discusses Battle.net World Championship, ESports In China

Blizzard Entertainment is riding momentum when it comes to StarCraft II. The game publisher and developer will unleash the first expansion, StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm, on March 13, 2013. But gamers in Shanghai, China who attend the inaugural Battle.net World Championship (BWC) November 17 and 18 will get hands-on time with the much-anticipated game.

Over the last eight months, Blizzard has combed the world for the best StarCraft II players through 30 national and continental tournaments around the world. Over 600 pros entered the fray, but only 32 remain for StarCraft II (and 10 for World of Warcraft). Chris Sigaty, producer for StarCraft II, talks about the big eSports event in China and how that country is growing into an eSports power in this exclusive interview.
