StarCraft 2 Status

A post on the Forums by Dustin "Cavez" Browder, lead developer on StarCraft 2, answers some fan FAQs about Blizzard's RTS sequel, covering topics like the beta, saying "Unless something crazy happens, the Beta is going to happen this year," and their lack of a firm release schedule, admitting, "Letís be realistic. Our target dates are not something we hit more than half the time." He follows that tempering of expectations with some optimism, though it's not 100% clear if he means they are in the final stretch of game development, or just the final stretch in producing the next battle report: "We don't want to lie about the Beta, and we don't even want to lie about the next Battle Report. When we know a date (for anything) for certain, we'll let you know. Hang in there. We're in the final stretch." Thanks StarCraftWire.

Not exactly reassuring the full product will ship this year then, eh?

That said, the full product should have shipped end of last year

Diablo 3: My "realistic" guess is 2011, end of 2010 if we're lucky.
