Starcarft 2 to be released as trilogy. Damn you corporate bozzos

Starcraft 2Blizzard announced in BlizzCon that the Starcraft 2 is going to be released as seperate Games. What? I say What? They said that the campaigns where too long and that it would be a very big game that it would take more time to be released. Now, that is pure BS. Blizzard always releases games when they are ready and not earlier. It might take years between releases but the studio always delivered top notch games. In addition to that, older games, when video games used to be more than dollar cows for large publishing studios, would be long and when say long I mean huge. Baldur's Gate 2 had more than 150 hours worth of gameplay and that was part of the whole experience. So what is this thing with the campaigns being long.BS...pure distilled BS I say. If it will take them a year longer I DON'T CARE, I will wait in order to get the FULL game and not some episode of the game.

I am not saying that the game(all three of them, for that matter, now) will not be excellent. All Blizzard's games are quality games. What I am saying, is that probably some corporate bozzo decided that this would be an excellent oportunity for even more money. And the thing is that they ll make them.Everybody will buy it. It is as if World of Warcaft does not generate tons of reveneu for them they want even more. Well I guess that's capitalism for you, but Blizzard never worked that way. I am disapointed.

This sucks! I was planning on buying it but now that I have to spend 3 times the money to get a complete single player game I really doubt it. Let's hope Blizzard will not do the same with Diablo III.
