    Default David Kim Has Left SC2

    So I found out this morning that David Kim had left SC2's team, apparently to work on something else (not sure if within Blizzard), what do you guys make of this change?

    I think, "Meh."

    I don't think there's many major balance changes left in SC2. Better to do something else.

    I'm relieved. SC2 needs a designer that knows how to listen, and grounded. Less prone to fanciful ideas, practical, logical, and having the element of earth running through his veins.

    He made really great concept art.

    That being said, meh.

    Uh, what? He's a game designer, not an artist.

    I think SC2 is done in terms of overall game design changes so it makes sense for people not to be working on it. I bet internally they're experimenting with ideas that could ultimately turn into WC4, and he'll be working on it along with Dustin Browder. We'll see in like 5 years how that goes.

    All I know is, I've seen pretty pictures with his name on the bottom. Given that they were complicated, non-poly pics, probably they existed for concept art purposes.

    My thought exactly. Some kind of RTS is most likely being designed right now and since SC3 would be "too soon" by regular Blizzard standards, I'd have to guess it would have to be WC4 or something new entirely. Maybe a Starcraft mobile/cross-platform spinoff? After the success of hearthstone, I wouldn't be surprised if they'd try something new on smartphones. Thinking more on this, an Overwatch mobile spinoff would probably work really well right now.

    There's no way Starcraft's next game will be an RTS, its by far their weakest IP and the franchise needs a shakeup before it returns to its RTS territory, as sad as it may be.
