Can you believe it's already been a year since Blizzard released StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty? The game launched on July 27, 2010 and sold sold over 1.5 million copies within the first 48 hours, making it the fastest-selling strategy game of all time.
In the birthday announcement, Blizzard looks back at the past year, including eSport victories and the impressive additions of the mod community. But what's next for StarCraft II? Blizzard gives some hints:
"Today we have a Blizzard DoTA playtest. Tomorrow we are going to play the first part of the Heart of the Swarm campaign (complete with cutscenes!). We continue to work on expanding multiplayer and improving Battle.Net. We can’t wait for BlizzCon this year: not only will we get to meet with players from all over the world and make some exciting announcements, but we’ll also get a chance to watch some of StarCraft II’s best players go head to head live in both the Global Battle.net Invitational and the GSL Finals."
