- Rob Pardo has commented that a StarCraft collectible card game could be created if Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft is successful. A StarCraft version would be designed differently due to the differences between the franchises.
- It is possible that a second novel will be written by Graham McNeill, possibly based on his original pitch.
- Writer and journalist Matthew W. Quinn had a plan for an interquel novel to take place between Wings of Liberty and Heart of the Swarm. He wrote a query and a long and a short synopsis, and e-mailed William C. Dietz to see if he could get his 'foot in the door.' However, Deitz pointed out that it is Blizzard's M.O. to contact authors rather than it being the other way round, not to mention that unsolicited manuscripts aren't accepted. Trailers release for Heart of the Swarm shot the idea down also.
