The official beta page for BlizzCon beta keys has been updated by Blizzard. The page has been redone to include a beta signup, and is likely for StarCraft 2, but there is a problem with the Signup Keys from BlizzCon 2008.
Stop teasing us and let us play!!!
I don't think the release will be until sometime like 6 months from now, sorry dude...
I totally agree, they are driving me crazy!
One would think they could at least announce the beta date that we already know they have set internally! =(
Teasing bastards :P
@Leord: Well, true. But in the worst case scenario they might actually have crossed it already! Good possible announcement dates are GDC San Francisco(23-27 march, if they attend), 31st of March or 1st of April (not sure which one, but one of those two is the birthday of Starcraft).
The question is really if it IS the SC beta signup they are fiddling with, or just doing maintenance on the site.
Neither, they're just taunting us
Hm, yeah, that would be kinda Blizzard-style... They have been known to do it before!
...the waiting is getting tiresome.
Yeah it could just be a coincidence. However, a little close to the SCII development news for my liking, probably has something to do with it.
Well, things are seldom coincidences with Blizzard...
@Cogo: Its a bit two sided really. People tend to read something in every small thing they can find so it might just as well be coincidence. However I looking at their level of professionalism it might just as well be true.
I doubt this page just popped up during maintenance, so please let this be real! New signs of the beta incoming are popping up almost every day now, so I'm keeping my hopes up! ^^
It COULD just be that it's them doing the coding, and they can move it over to Battle.net or StarCraft2.com at a later date.
True, cause if this page would've popped up on SCII.com or Battle.net, everyone would have gone apeshit. Not that it isn't happening already, but imagine the reactions then!
They seem very occupied with SOMETHING. Once in a while they do massive bursts of posts on the boards, or release lots of content. They are clearly in very high gear, regardless of what's cooking. Dustin Browder have replied to forum posts late at night, so lots of overtime, likely...
Will Blizzard appear at the GDC? Cause they might be prepping something for us to show at the GDC...
When is GDC?
March 23-27 ;-) So it's close!
@Zidane: its more then close enough to be interesting ;) In the past their attendance would've been a sure thing, but with both BlizzCon and the BWWI, its no longer a sure thing. SF is not to far away from BlizzHQ (Irvine) so there is hope :)
Want, so much. I'm going to have to keep a close eye on that site.
one of my best friends works at Blizzard! I can't wait to try the SC2 beta key he sent me! woooohooooo!
