Whats better than one Starcraft 2 games? How about, THREE Starcraft 2 games!

Fans were stunned when Blizzard made the announcement that we wont be getting the next Starcraft game in one package and instead will be released as three separate expansions, so thats one for each race. The 3 expansions, according to release, will be Wings of Liberty (Terran), Heart of the Swarm (Zerg), and Legacy of the Void (Protoss). Blizzard VP of Game Development Rob Pardo explained that separate expansions will allow for more in-depth and longer campaigns for each race rather than a truncated version that would occur with a single release. This news of course has gotten mixed reactions from the community, on one side, people like me who trust Blizz are happy that were actually getting enough content, I mean when Blizzard really feels like their game truely is on an epic scale they really do something about it. This move to me is the only thing Blizzard can do short of actually releasing an mmorpg for Starcraft (but there have been rumors that Universe of Starcraft is in development already).  And on one hand some fans feel that this along with the announcement of a Battle.net 2.0 with paid subscription is just Blizzard’s way of squeezing every bit of revenue they can from gamers. Also fans who have specific races that they want to play are also upset by this news.
