The game did not match the sales pace set by its predecessor, StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty, which sold 1.5 million copies over the same period of time in 2010.

Heart of the Swarm is the first of two expansions for Wings of Liberty. The third and final entry--Legacy of the Void--is currently in development and has no release date. It will focus on the Protoss race.
