It has been reported that Kespa is planning to abandon its 10-year old eSports game, Brood War, and adopt SC2 as part of their approved games.
On July 7th, according to related correspondence, Kespa representatives and its sponsors' representatives (SKTelecom, Samsung, etc.) were invited by Blizzard Entertainment in Irvine, California.
For now, both sides are denying this rumor. However, detailed visiting dates and names of the people involved were in the rumor, so this rumor may actually be credible.
the significance of this event shows that Blizzard is genuinely willing to cooperate with Kespa despite their past conflicts. Not exactly making Kespa to completely switch over to SC2, but more likely asking their input on the HOTS expansion with pro-gaming perspective.
Anyways, this shows that the relationship between the two has improved dramatically. On July 6th's press conference, Kim Joon Ho, the current Kespa president spoke, "Blizzard's goal is to expand their Asian market, and we believe that we can help Blizzard with our experiences with running BW leagues."
The problem is if Kespa switches to pro-SC2, GomTV may be in trouble when Blizzard endorses a Kespa-owned SC2 league. As it turns out, GomTV did not know about this secret meeting. A GomTV representative said, "We found out about this later, No comment."
