Wall Street Journal apologises for Starcraft blunder

Posted By | On 24th, Jul. 2010

The WSJ has apologised after reporting an incorrect figure for the development costs of Starcraft II.

It’s original story reported that Starcraft II cost $100 million to create- but this was later acknowledged as a mistake, as the figure was actually a reference to World of Warcraft development costs.

Activision Blizzard Inc. hasn’t disclosed development costs for its Starcraft II videogame. A July 16 Technology article about the Starcraft sequel incorrectly said the company spent more than $100 million to develop the game; that figure referred to its World of Warcraft game.

Blizzard told VG247 that they will “never disclosed the development cost of StarCraft II”.

Starcraft II is out on July 27, and you can begin pre-loading it now.
