Blizzard: StarCraft 2 NOT shelved in favour of Diablo 3

Blizzard has denied rumours that development on StarCraft II has been largely postponed until Diablo III is finished.

However, speaking to yesterday in London prior to the midnight launch of World of Warcraft expansion Wrath of the Lich King, Paul Sams, chief operating officer, Blizzard Entertainment, assured fans that the StarCraft II team has "absolutely, positively... not been pulled off".

"Absolutely not" said Sams when asked categorically if StarCraft II development had been postponed in favour of Diablo III development. "They are two separate teams entirely. The StarCraft 2 team is the most veteran team at Blizzard. As an example the team lead from StarCraft, the original, is one of the lead engineers on the game. I would say maybe as much as half of that team are among our most seasoned and most veteran players and developers in the entire company."

I want diablo 3 before :)

Honestly, ive been disappointed in starcraft 2 well from what ive seen of it dont get me wrong its gonna be a very good game,but i dont know it looks way too much like the 1st one and theres not even a new race and now the game is split into 3 that we will get 1 each year or something like that

I cant wait for either of them.

Bliz could poop in a game box and I'd still get the limited collectors edition.

Why does the article summary's second paragraph begin with "however" if it and the first paragraph agree with each other?

Lazy contribution. =O

I'm glad to hear it's confirmed now! Didn't expect DIII to be released before SCII anyway, especially after the announcement of the trilogy and the fact that the bèta will arrive soon! ^^
