Blizzard: No date to announce for StarCraft II beta, but no NDA in force

Blizzard, while currently asking for journalist BattleNet details for the impending StarCraft II beta, said in the mails it sent out to sites yesterday that the test’s start date is still off-limits.

“We do not currently have a date to announce for the start of the beta test,” said the firm.

It’s safe to assume, however, that the beta’s very close. And good news was included in the mail: the beta has no NDA. That means that journos will be free to capture video and screens from the game, as well as being able to write impressions.

Keep watching. Sites have been asked to get their BN log-ins in by this Friday.
