When the UPL sent a fleet to capture the Koprulu Sector, they were annihilated by the Zerg.

Not just that - but the Terrans in the Koprulu Sector were "undesirables" that the United Power League was exterminating en masse back on Earth prior to StarCraft. Some of these "undesirables" were rounded up, shoved onto colony ships which then malfunctioned and dumped them into the Koprulu Sector instead - which StarCraft is set in.

So - even assuming those companies survived - advertisements of current companies are ill-suited to the StarCraft games, at least in their current setting in the Koprulu Sector. These companies would simply not be trading with the Koprulu exiles.
In an attempt to keep justifying my comments....you can pretend that these "undesirables" were working with those companies before the the extermination and just set up shop in the new sector

The Zerg were probably mutated from a coca cola bottling plant that got shot into space during the soft drink wars of 2012.

Fair enough, I suppose that can work with some imagination - although, it can bring up some rather humorous scenarios.

I can just picture a newspaper headline in the 23rd century of StarCraft's timeline:

COCA-COLA EMPLOYEES DEEMED UNDESIRABLES, EXILED INTO SPACE.

A lot of interesting ideas - I am really looking forward to this.

As far I've seen, the Protoss units seem more specialized this time around, Terrans seem to have retained the element of high firepower (Siege Tank, Battlecruiser, that new Thor mech), while the Zerg seem to have much more abilities at their disposal. Anyway, I hope Blizzard can pull it off.
