Blizzard considering free-to-play for ‘StarCraft 2’ multiplayer

Blizzard is "looking at free-to-play as an option for the multiplayer" in real-time strategy game StarCraft 2.

Blizzard is "looking at free-to-play as an option for the multiplayer" in real-time strategy game StarCraft 2, reports PCGamesN.

The response came from lead designer Dustin Browder during a Valencia eSports Congress panel. When asked about the possibility of a free-to-play model, Browder explained that it's the logistics of the switch that are still a work in progress.

"We don't know how we would monetize it," said Browder. "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."

StarCraft 2 will expand its gameplay in upcoming installments Heart of the Swarm and Legacy of the Void. No release date has been announced for either expansion.
