Blizzard: StarCraft 2 Development did NOT cost $100mil

The Wall Street Journal last week ran a report on the development cost of Blizzards upcoming Strategy sequel, StarCraft 2.

The report stated that the total development cost of the game came up to $100,000,000 but apparently the report was published in error as Blizzard’s PR sent out a mass amount of emails stating that Blizzard never disclosed the development cost of StarCraft 2 to anyone.

So where did WSJ get the “$100mil” pricing from? Well, that is infact the total development cost for Blizzards MMORPG series World of Warcraft, which when spread over all the expansions seems far less jaw-dropping.
