Should be awesome.:)(though im not a huge RTS fan.)
Long-awaited multiplayer testing phase for Blizzard's heavily anticipated sci-fi RTS slated to begin in the next few weeks, mid-2010 launch still on track.
Blizzard fans have been left wondering when the developer would make good on its call for tester applications, first issued in May 2009.

As part of Activision's year-end earnings report today, Blizzard president Mike Morhaime has now answered that question, saying that the closed beta test for Starcraft II will begin later this month. Morhaime also affirmed that the sci-fi real-time strategy title is "still tracking toward our goal of a mid-2010 release."
Undoubtedly to promote the launch of Starcraft II's closed beta phase, Blizzard this week released a promotional video featuring Battle.net project director Greg Canessa.

I wish they would hurry up with this one, so they could spend all their time on Diablo 3.

If they launch closed beta in the US this month, I'd say mid 2010 is more than likely...its been in beta in Korea for like a year..

When is everyone going to figure out that SC II and Diablo III are never coming?

At the next blizzcon they'll say

"Announcing our new Starcraft...

THEMED WOW PACK!!!"

It's never coming guys, it's like duke nukem forever. Blizzard found their new niche, and it's mmo's.

I'm at the point of not caring about the Starcraft franchise, for some 5 years now.

It's been 12 years since the first game. In the meanwhile, all they did was to show and cancel SC: Ghost.

Unless you're a south-korean, who the hell even cares?

They might as well just make a new franchise. Starcraft is powerless as a brand right now.

Ok. Take some time off and play the original again and then tell me that story isn't worth a sequel. It's seriously awesome in all it's opera goodness! :D

And release dates changes. I haven't payed a lot of attention to games the past few years, but it used to be common practice to delay games.

The story was worth a sequel 8 years ago, when people actually cared.

Honestly, I don't care even a little bit about what happens to Kerrigan and Raynor.




I'm definitely more interested in finding out if Shephard survives ME:3 or what Morrigan did to my son (Beatch, I'm taking that case to the court! Homeless and jobless witch vs. War hero high-mage living in the royal palace, let's see who gets the custody!)


Blizzard spent the last 6 years sucking on the WoW phenomenon while neglecting everything else, I couldn't care less about them.
