Instead, the remaining team will now only take care of changes to the balancing and the transition between the different seasons. In a statement from Executive Producer Rob Bridenbecker it says:
"We'll be StarCraft 2 continue to support as we did with our previous long-lived games – Brood War for example – we focus on what concerns our core and competitive community most. This means that we will no longer produce any buyable content like Commanders or War Chests. "
With this move, the team wants to give itself more freedom to think about what might be next in the StarCraft universe. In November 2015, StarCraft 2: Legacy of the Void was the final expansion for the game. A new project has not yet been confirmed.
