Update: It’s fake. See the blue post. Thanks, Quak0r.

Luis ‘Paperkat’ Di Centa, WoW champion at BlizzCon 2008, has apparently told SK-Gaming that he’s received a StarCraft II beta invite.

Di Centa claims the beta’s an 8.3Gb download. The email he’s been sent says:

“We’re excited to have reached the beta-testing stage for the second Starcraft game, and we’d be grateful to have your assistance in finalizing the content. There are a lot of new things to test, the single-player campaign and a brand new multiplayer experience, and we look forward to receiving any feedback you can offer.”

Here’s the salt. Blizzard’s already said there’ll be no StarCraft II beta this year. Checking now.
