Without a doubt, one of the most important news of the year is the purchase of Activision Blizzard by Microsoft. Thousands of fans have already expressed their enthusiasm and optimism on social networks, believing that this unprecedented movement in the industry will allow us to see the return of some classic franchises that currently remain in a long lethargy and with no signs of returning.
Of course, there are many players who dream of seeing the triumphant return of StarCraft, the popular and prestigious Blizzard franchise. Among the people who expressed these wishes was an actor who recently rose to international stardom by starring in one of the highest-grossing films of 2021.
Shang-Chi wants more StarCraft
Of course, we are referring to Simu Liu, a Chinese-Canadian actor who last year starred in the film Shang-Chi and the Legend of the 10 Rings of Marvel and who does not skimp on expressing his passion for video games whenever he has the opportunity.
The actor turned to his social networks to ask that “please save StarCraft”. While his short but concise request wasn’t directed at anyone in particular, a high-profile Blizzard employee addressed the comment with an answer that was just as simple, but managed to get the entire community excited.

Specifically, Mike Ybarra, current director of Blizzard Entertainment, responded to Simu Liu’s tweet with an emoji of a happy face. Of course, this interaction doesn’t mean the franchise will make a triumphant return anytime soon, but it certainly gives fans hope.
