StarCraft celebrates its 20 year anniversary with celebrations across other games

It’s been 20 years since StarCraft was first released to the world, and as a result, Blizzard is taking the time to celebrate the anniversary. Where? Everywhere. Basically every single title has some sort of anniversary celebration, even World of Warcraft.

Although considering the World of Warcraft celebration just consists of a feat of strength for saluting minipets based off of the game, calling that one a “celebration” might be a bit of a stretch. “Acknowledgement” seems more appropriate.

Overwatch players can pick up a Kerrigan skin for Widowmaker, StarCraft II players can get special UI skins based off of the original game, and even StarCraft Remastered gets a special UI skin. There are also rewards for taking part in a special brawl in Hearthstone and old-school portraits for Heroes of the Storm, so whatever title you play, you can do something to remember the game’s initial launch.

According to the event website, Diablo 3 will receive a “battlecruiser-themed pet”.

It’s a shame they don’t cross promote starcraft like they do HotS or OW. As in – play an online match in SC2 get a mount in WoW/HotS. That kinda stuff. I think it’d go a long way to help people pick up an RTS again.

seems like they mostly gave up on sc2 at different points, adn the final act was to add the hots/ow style cash shop boxes thing for the loyalist s to support it while otherwise largely abandoning it.

I think it has been more than two.
