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.
