StarCraft II in July

Blizzard announces July 27, 2010 is the official release date for StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty in the following lengthy list of territories: United States, Canada, Europe, South Korea, Australia, New Zealand, Russia, Mexico, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, the Philippines, and the regions of Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macau. They also indicate they will begin selling the real-time strategy sequel directly to customers shortly after that retail launch. Here's word on the game:

StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty is the sequel to Blizzard Entertainment’s 1998 hit StarCraft, which has been hailed by players and critics worldwide as one of the top real-time strategy games of all time. Sporting a vibrant 3D-graphics engine, StarCraft II will once again center on the clash between the protoss, terrans, and zerg, with each side deploying legions of veteran, upgraded, and new unit types. Unparalleled online play for StarCraft II will be available through a new version of Battle.net, Blizzard Entertainment's world-renowned gaming service. Battle.net has been redesigned from the ground up to be the premier online gaming destination for Blizzard gamers, with several enhancements and new features, such as voice communication, cloud file storage, leagues and ladders, achievements, stat-tracking, and more.

The solo campaign for StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty will continue the epic saga where it left off in StarCraft: Brood War®. The story line chronicles the exploits of marshal-turned-rebel-leader Jim Raynor and features both familiar faces and new heroes. Players will be able to tailor the experience, choosing their own mission path and selecting technology and research upgrades to suit their playing style throughout the 29-mission campaign. Several challenge-mode mini-games will also be included, with focused goals designed to ease players into the basics of multiplayer strategies.

Mhh, thanks for the link

Still think it would be better to wait for a pack, no point in buying part 1 of 3 and then have to wait for part 2 for years only to then forget the story of part 1 before part 2 gets out.

Blizzard doesn't release unpolished stuff, thats good. But Now that they split the game into 3 i sure as hell hope they are faster then 3 years for part 2 and 3 ^^
I certainly don't care if you purchase a game now, later, or ignore it entirely, but it's just plain bullshit to continue spreading this nonsense about how it's "only part 1 of 3" or that they "split a single game into 3 parts".


Maybe if Starcraft 2 was 1/3 the size of the game as Starcraft, it would make sense......but....well....it's not.
