StarCraft officially turns 20 on March 31, 2018, and all throughout the month, we'll be celebrating this epic milestone alongside our epic community of players. Revisit the saga that introduced the world to iconic characters like Jim Raynor, Sarah Kerrigan, and Zeratul, and helped set the stage for esports as we know them today.

  • StarCraft Short Film: On March 31, we're debuting StarCraft is Life: A 20th Anniversary Celebration, which features StarCraft players from around the world sharing how the series has impacted their lives.
  • StarCraft Anniversary Live Stream: Join us on March 30 and 31 for a live celebration featuring StarCraft personalities old and new. Tune in on Twitch during the stream to earn a commemorative console skin for StarCraft II, and earn even more goodies by watching StarCraft on Twitch throughout the entire month!
  • Party Across Games. It may be StarCraft's birthday, but all our universes are coming to the party. Leading up to StarCraft's anniversary on March 31, we're giving out all kinds of bonuses and goodies when you log into your favorite Blizzard games.
  • StarCraft II: Log in to earn Remastered Terran, Zerg, and Protoss console skins; a 20 Years of StarCraft portrait; a 20 Years of StarCraft achievement; and 20 Years of Terran, Zerg, and Protoss decals. Select StarCraft II items will also be on sale from March 6-20.
  • StarCraft Remastered: A new console skin awaits those who log in during the StarCraft 20th Anniversary. StarCraft Remastered will also be on sale from March 6-20.
  • Heroes of the Storm: Log in to earn Protoss, Zerg, and Terran portraits and test your mettle in StarCraft-themed Brawls. Also, be on the lookout for a new Hero from the StarCraft universe coming to the Nexus soon.
  • Diablo III: Call down the Hyperion to Tristram-in a manner of speaking-with the new Battlecruiser Pet.
  • World of Warcraft: WoW players can stand up and be recognized when they /salute one of the following StarCraft-themed companion pets: Zergling, Grunty, Mini Thor, Baneling, or Zeradar.
  • Overwatch: One of the Dominion's deadliest Ghosts meets Talon's ruthless assassin with the new Kerrigan Widowmaker skin.
  • Hearthstone: Get ready for a StarCraft-inspired Tavern Brawl later this month.

That is not how I remember the Blizzard that gave me Warcraft, Warcraft 2, Diablo, Diablo 2 and StarCraft.
Activision Blizzard on the other hand, I couldn't care less about.

The only series that I care about from Blizzard is Warcraft; not to be confused with World of Warcraft.

What does it take to get them to make Warcraft 4?
