During the StarCraft 2 gameplay panel at BlizzCon, Blizzard posed a question to the audience: Should they sacrifice an epic story or truly create something spectacular? They’re choosing the latter.
Friday night, the company announced that they will be creating a single-player trilogy for StarCraft 2 where each race will have a stand-alone game. The first will be Terran: Wings of Liberty, where players take on the role of Jim Raynor in a non-linear game. The second is Zerg: Heart of the Swarm, and the last will be Protoss: Legacy of the Void.
Blizzard is promising that each game will have 26-30 missions, and each campaign will feel like its own epic story. They are also promising that they won’t leave StarCraft lovers with cliffhangers. Each game will be a full product with a satisfying ending. We’ll be hitting up Blizzard for more info as BlizzCon continues, so stay tuned.

I heard that this decision only affects the campaign mode, so skirmish and multiplayer are fine, but this is just hearsay so don’t take my word for it.
I… need time to absorb this news man. kinda surprised things are going this way. The thought of waiting 6 years(random guessing) to get all 3 kinda puts me off…
