StarCraft II Beta Delayed Until Next Year

StarCraft Legacy has an English recap of a Russian story on GoHa.Ru about the Russian games expo IgroMir, where Blizzard producer Chris Sigaty confirmed the StarCraft II beta test is pushed until 2010. During the summer Blizzard CEO Mike Morhaime said testing of the RTS sequel would commence this year, but these new reports don't include any reason for the delay. Thanks Eurogamer.

No way Starcraft 2 is going to ship before the 2010 holiday. Accounting for all of the forthcoming "when it's done" explanations when the beta time comes and goes, I think Summer 2011 might be a better guess.

If 3.3 comes out in nov/dec I don't think they'd let us sit for 12 months without a content patch.

Blues have come out and said 3.3 is the last content patch before Cataclysm. (http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/thread.html?topicId=20464486377&postId=203051101516&sid=1#1)

Not enough minerals.
My god, I heard the Terran robotic female voice say that when I read that. I've been playing that way too much.

i heard the protoss voice in my head.. followed promptly by "you must construct additional pylons."

I'm guessing this means that Cataclysm is coming out first.

Depends exactly when the beta starts... Blizzard is probably targeting a holiday 2010 release for Cataclysm. If Blizzard sticks to their 1st half of 2010 timeframe for SC2, then it will be out before Cataclysm.

While they take forever to be released, they, so far, haven't failed to hit their mark. They're so popular and yummy!

If it was candy, imagine how fat we'd all be

Though, if the beta happens in 2010 and all goes well, we may see a release much like they predicted. Or not

BTW if anyone hasn't yet, speaking of Blizz games -- Torchlight feels like an early Diablo 3. Go try it NOW! Support the devs!

They realized they needed more time to test their new DRM, errr, the "new" Battle.net. Bobby probably found it wasn't intrusive enough.

Man, seriously Blizzard games must have the longest development time in the industry. It takes them at least 5-7 years to release a game once it has gone "public".
