After a trip to Korea , Mike Morhaime — CEO of Blizzard — was in talks with KeSPA — The Korean eSports Association — who are currently running the most successful StarCraft: Brood War league in history that is hitting massive numbers. The talks where regarding expanding the StarCraft 2 license in Korea.
There has recently been a slight worry for StarCraft 2 in Korea as League Of Legends has been surging towards the top, challenging SC2 as the successor to Brood War. But when you have Blizzard’s CEO making a trip to have talks with the biggest organization in Korea, you know that they are looking to aggressively expand taking the fight to the League.
Hopefully we could see StarCraft 2 and Brood War fight side by side in the Proleague — until the time comes for the old dog to give it up.
