Blizzard may have only just kicked off the beta recently, but still hopes to have StarCraft 2 released soon.
Blizzard has reconfirmed that it is aiming for a 2010 release date for StarCraft 2
, with the hope being to get the game out and on shelves within the first half of 2010 - even though the game has only just entered beta.
The news comes from the official Blizzard podcast
, where StarCraft 2
's lead producer, Chris Siagty, revealed some of the plans for the game.
"We were targeting three to five months for the beta, we're really at a three month period of time for the beta at this point. We are still targeting the first half of this year... [for release],
" Siagty said.
The StarCraft 2 beta
kicked off earlier this month, though Blizzard CEO Michael Morhaime was clear when discussing the launch of the beta that he could not explicitly commit to a mid-2010 release for the game. Hmm.
We'll be taking a look at the beta and telling you what we think later this week, just in case you haven't had a chance to have a go on the game just yet - so stay tuned.
In the meantime, let us know what you think of how the game is shaping up and Blizzard's plans to divide the game into three smaller titles
