Rumor: Star Craft 2 Hits Retail on December 3rd This Year

Word got round that Blizzard's next installment of the award winning Star Craft strategy game is due to hit retail shelves on December 3, 2008. The report is everything but official, so don't get too excited.
Many froth-mouthed fans of Blizzard's intergalactic real-time strategy masterpiece Starcraft have anxiously been awaiting word on when the next installment of the series would land in their anticipatory laps. Blizz has been characteristically tight-lipped about the title's launch window, though we were recently informed that an online SKU search for Starcraft II on Best Buy, Circuit City, and Gamestop's web sites reveal the same supposed release date of December 3, 2008. With no confirmation from Blizzard, it's far from official

It would make sense since it comes just in time for the holiday season but, I won't believe it until there's an official comment from Blizzard.

Pretty serious release schedule, considering Wrath of the Lich King is scheduled for Nov 3rd.... They've got different divisions working the two projects, but still, that's a pretty hectic release area...

What the hell is up with the teaser picture at blizzard.com

Blizzard needs to announce Diablo 3 btw!

They already purchased the diablo3.com domain from diablofans.com

All I know is that I have preordered this game, and will be waiting for whenever it comes out! Just like I spent 3 years to get my Star Ocean 3... Longest Pre-order for me yet!

SC2 might just get me back into playing RTS again -

but, I'll believe it's release once I see it in stores . . . I'm not going to get my hopes up for what could turn out as another Chinese Democracy . . .




oh, wait! :slap:=myself That's Duke Nukem Forever! :laugh:

bah. i won't trust a blizzard release date, official or otherwise, ever since they botched starcraft ghost.... twice.

on a lighter note, if the sequel lives up to the original, i may have to take a semester off school.
