Acti Blizz just confirmed that StarCraft II will launch in the first half of 2010 “to coincide with the relaunch of its upgraded Battle.net online -gaming service.”

The news Blizzard fans have been dreading to hear came in the company’s just-released Q2 financial report.

“As we prepare for next year, we have moved the expected release dates for two games, Activision Publishing’s Singularity and Blizzard Entertainment’s StarCraft II, into 2010,” said company boss Bobby Kotick.

The firm had previously delayed Singularity into next year last month.

    Ah, Starcraft II! 1 game for the price of 3, step right up!

    Seriously, this, the hiked-up price of Modern Warfare 2 and yet Bobby-whatever-his-name-is calls out Sony on their pricing? Do I need to mention the term hypocrisy or were you already thinking that?

    Ok, so the beta hasn’t begun yet, they pushed the game into 2010. They expect a 6 month beta, atleast.
    The writing is on the wall for this being a “holiday 2010″ title.

    “Modern Warfare 2 will make more money than man has ever seen this Christmas.”

    “Then why are we releasing this now?”

    “…”

    “I’ve got a plan…”
