"We discovered early that if we truly desired to tell an engaging, a layered story and have many characters and the various resources, it would end in a whole game to tell one campaign's story. Then we were confronted with the tough decision of'OK now what should we do? Do we return on using the World of Warcraft approach so that we can incorporate the three campaigns or do we just go ahead and take each race as a separate product""

"One thing that result from the decision to launch as three games is that it only affects single-player campaigns," he said. "The multiplayer will remain fully integrated with the three races, which means there's no need to put any focus upon playing the Terrans in multiplayer, as opposed to Zergs and Protoss. The three races will all have full-featured, the same quantity of units, the same quantity of production behind all of them. Only the single player is affected by the decision to make the trilogy."
