I already own Wings of Liberty and am hoping that Heart of the Swarm is sold as an expansion instead of a full game. Is there any information about this?

As outlined in our FAQ, speculation of future releases is off-topic, which your question falls under. The reason for this is that there is no way for us to know the cost of the game outside of an official announcement from Blizzard, so answering your question is impossible Due to this I'm voting to close your question. –  Wipqozn Jul 24 '12 at 20:33

There is an official FAQ from Blizzard, making the question answerable. –  David B Jul 24 '12 at 20:44
    
Wipqozn should have said "answering your question might be impossible" - that is one of the reasons speculation on future releases is prohibited - we can only answer some of them, iff the developer has provided an answer for us to quote. –  Jason Berkan Jul 24 '12 at 20:50

Right now, Amazon.com has Heart of the Swarm listed for $39.99 (USD).

This may just be a pre-order price for it; and subject to change after release. But you can lock into the price now if you pre-order.

[update]

If you purchased Wings of Liberty, you still need to purchase Heart of the Swarm in order to play Heart of the Swarm.

Updated. If you want to play Heart of the Swarm you must purchase it. Wings of Liberty won't automatically upgrade. –  Dylan Yaga Jul 24 '12 at 20:32

According to Blizzard's FAQ for North America and Europe:

How much will Heart of the Swarm cost?

We typically don’t provide details about pricing until the game is closer to release. We do view Heart of the Swarm as an expansion set, so for the regions that have a standard box business model such as North America and Europe, we will price accordingly. For other regions that have alternative business models, we’ll provide details at a later date.

There you have it from Blizzard directly. They consider Heart of the Swarm as an expansion.


To your questions in comments - in the FAQ, you must own Wings of Liberty to play Heart of the Swarm.
