Blizzard has announced that they are cancelling HGC and heroes of the dorm. So Heroes esports scene is basically dead.
Personally, i would be worried for SC2 esports. With all the negative news about how Blizzard management is changing to be more corporate and fixated on more profits than making good games, surely they must be looking at SC2 as well.
Over in the solar thread, we have people saying that there needs to be more support in developing the scene in korea. I would be glad if they will still sponsor GSL next season as i can't imagine that it makes any financial sense for them to invest even more money in it.
How about WCS? I would think that heroes would have been making more or at least similar money to SC2 with players buying skins and loot boxes and hgc still got cancelled.
SC2 was always the pet of Mike Morhime and now he's gone, and with what happened to hgc, i am seriously worried.

I wouldn't take that as confirmation until i see official plans for wcs 2019. And like some have mentioned before SC2 might have had its best year in a while but is it good enough for the higher ups?
