Activision Confirms StarCraft II for 2009

The interesting fact with this presentation is that while we recently got confirmation that StarCraft II won't be joining us for the Christmas of 2008, but we WILL be seeing StarCraft II sometime during 2009.

"Next year's offerings from Activision Blizzard should include highly anticipated PC strategy title StarCraft II, the sequel to one of the world's most enduringly popular games."

Well, as the article say, this is no big surprise, and Blizzard COULD probably postpone the release to 2010 just to mess with Activision, but I think this sounds pretty solid, especially considering the source.

More or less what I expected. If the beta is out by Christmas, we might see the full title by the summer.

Leord3676d ago

Yeah, that would be my guess as well. Perhaps less time between beta start and release though, so a beta after Christmas... Hopefully earlier release as well...

Can't wait to see SC2. Looks good.

Synteny3676d ago

By the looks of it, I would expect SC2 to be released around Q3 with a demo released a few months before.

I would only expect a 2010 release if they hit a big snag somewhere in development, but that seems somewhat unlikely since the problems with unit identity and micro/macro balance are already here and should be sorted out soon (hopefully).

Leord3676d ago

Well, I still think Q3 is pessimistic. Ofc, it all depends on the Zerg and Protoss Single Player game. I think 2.0 has a separate dev team. I think I heard them talking like that, Jay Wilson that is. Perhaps he reffered to StarCraft 2 team, who knows, but I bet a beta is quicker than you say.

TheCHUNK seems quite on spot. Beta at or after Christmas, and release in the summer/spring.

It's hard to know as Blizz obviously did a lot of polishing before showing off the different builds around the globe...

I doubt we'll see a demo before launch. The Warcraft 3 demo came over six months after the game's launch, making it mildly pointless. It'd be nice if Blizzard actually did this, but they'll probably not if their track record is anything to go by.

Leord3676d ago

And woho! I just got my 7th bubble from someone kind! Thanks you a lot =D

SlyGuy3676d ago

Oh well. Already many other games to play in '08.

Sigh...See u in 2009 then.
