StarCraft II lead designer Dustin Browder told audiences at the Valencia eSports Congress that Blizzard has contemplated taking the multiplayer portion of StarCraft II free to play. The publisher is ‘looking at free to play as an option’, according to PCGamesN – probably as one of a number of lines of investigation tracking the changing face of the games industry.
“We don’t know how we would monetise it. While it might be good fun for me to play against someone with only half the units available to them, that’s not going to be an enjoyable experience for them,” Browder noted.
The second instalment of StarCraft II, Heart of the Swarm, has not yet been dated.
