Blizzard: StarCraft II beta is “very, very close”

Thursday, 18th June 2009 14:07 GMT By Patrick Garratt


StarCraft II producer Chris Sigaty has given a clear indication that StarCraft II’s beta really is almost upon us.

“What I can tell you is that we’re working hard on it right now, and we’re getting very, very close,” he said, talking in a live interview with Swedish site Press2Play.

“We don’t have an announcement on it right now, but we’re not years away at this point, and we’re not even quarters away at this point. Very soon, very soon.”

The developer has nothing new to add on a final release date for the RTS.

“We’re saying that we’re targeting to release the game this year,” said Sigaty, but the game won’t ship till it’s ready.

Our BattleNet log-in’s with Blizzard, as was requested earlier this week. Can we plz has beta now?

    Doesn’t look like it from all the movies I’ve watched. Bases all over the place.

    i’d love to sort my account out, pity blizzard are fucking useless when it comes running sites and totally fucked up my logins

    to clarify, typing “” into your address bar will bring you to the website… however blizzard have an website and despite them both being identical and both allowing US and EU data onto them they allowed me to create two separate accounts, one on each, then associate my WoW account with only one of them… the EU one… then not let me log into the EU account!!!
