StarCraft II: a sequel 12 years in the making

The release of StarCraft II not only signifies what's arguably the most notable PC game release in a while, but also marks one of the longest periods of time in between two franchise releases (not counting expansion packs). After 12 years, developer Blizzard Entertainment has finally released the follow-up to the 1998 real-time-strategy instant classic, StarCraft.

Set in a far-off galaxy in the 26th century, StarCraft II has three chapters, the first of which (Wings of Liberty) was released today. Later on, two expansion packs will add on to the game, fleshing out the fate of other races from within the game's universe. "Heart of the Swarm" and "Legacy of the Void" have yet to receive concrete release dates.
