StarCraft III?[edit]

Do we know when and if we would get a StarCraft III? Tfan101 (talk) 22:12, 20 April 2015 (UTC)

The last installment for SCII has just been out for 16 days so don't go there yet. 195.109.63.17 (talk) 06:56, 26 November 2015 (UTC)
Can't say much about Starcraft 3, but a mission pack is announced starring Nova in 3 episodes consisting of 3 missions each, starting to be released in June this year. Blizzard has said these occur in the aftermath of Amons destruction. see here: Starcraft II: Legacy of the Void. The mission packs are designed to keep players engaged with Starcraft 2, so if one were to speculate... SC3 won't be coming anytime soon. Scourge Splitter (talk) 10:55, 19 January 2016 (UTC)

Requested move 13 December 2015[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

Moved as proposed per consensus; the franchise has overtaken any individual installment as the primary topic; when this occurs, the franchise becomes the primary topic. bd2412 T 15:38, 21 December 2015 (UTC)

– (1) The series is the common name. Google searches indicate that searchers are looking for the series at this point rather than the first title. (2) The series has enough entries to meet WP:NCGAMESDAB's recommendation, which makes sense here. czar 21:40, 13 December 2015 (UTC)

  • Support: I support this and it makes sense. StarCraft should link directly to the series as they have made many more games since and people searching would most likely want to find out more about the entire series rather than the single game that came out in 1998.

  • Support Per nom. -- ferret (talk) 23:11, 13 December 2015 (UTC)
  • We had considered this at the time of Wings of Liberty but decided the series wasn't quite the length it needed to be (this was also prior to the "Blizzard is doing 'full' expansion packs for SC2' decision). I will give an unqualified support for this move, per the nom. --Izno (talk) 13:55, 14 December 2015 (UTC)
  • Oppose first, support second redirect StarCraft to Starcraft (disambiguation) and move Starcraft (disambiguation) to Starcraft In ictu oculi (talk) 16:24, 14 December 2015 (UTC)
    I think the video game series called StarCraft is clearly the WP:PTOPIC. What policy/guideline reasoning do you have to move around the disambiguation page? --Izno (talk) 16:28, 14 December 2015 (UTC)
  • Support – Thought about this carefully. Per WP:PRIMARYTOPIC, we should look at incoming wikilinks and article traffic as well, and right now, both measures do not support the move. The series article gets only a third of the traffic that the video game article gets (in fact, StarCraft II actually gets a lot more as well), and has about 25% fewer incoming wikilinks in the article namespace. Despite these statistics, I'm still supporting the move. I think the number of expansions, board games, and other media-related items associated with the franchise have dwarfed the original game by a wide margin at this point. The third criteria mentioned by the nom, Google results, is probably the most important and stands as a clear indication that various elements of the franchise are just as likely to turn up in the results as the original game. It's time to make the move. --GoneIn60 (talk) 16:18, 15 December 2015 (UTC)
  • (edit conflict) Support per WP:NCVGDAB. The series (franchise) is the WP:PRIMARYTOPIC at this point. Common usage in reliable sources no longer primarily refers to the first game. Searching also suggests it is the primary topic between other non-game related topics of the similar name. Since primary topic would take the game's title, the game can be dabbed with "video game". —  HELLKNOWZ  ▎TALK 16:22, 15 December 2015 (UTC)
  • Support, for all the reasons given.–Totie (talk) 02:43, 20 December 2015 (UTC)
  • Support. Although the video game came first, other things named after it, the other things eclipse the old video game. Oppose any StarCraft (disambiguation) because all topics are variations on the one topic. The CamelCase is significant. StarCraft should be listed at Starcraft (disambiguation), where the PT of starcraft is astrology. Possibly, StarCraft could be a WP:CONCEPTDAB page. --SmokeyJoe (talk) 05:11, 21 December 2015 (UTC)

Move cleanup[edit]

A lot of ground to cover here. I've hit many of the obvious areas, and the templates. There's a ton of links though. In many cases the articles probably are fine referring to the series, I've been mostly updating clear references to the first game. -- ferret (talk) 16:22, 21 December 2015 (UTC)
