Blizard’s confirmed that the second phase of the StarCraft II beta finishes tooday, and with it, the taster itself. For good. Done. Forever.

“We would like to thank everyone who has participated in the StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty beta test,” said a post on the Battle.net blog.

“You’ve done an admirable job of testing, and we greatly appreciate all of the feedback you provided during this critical phase of development. It’s been a lot of fun; however, all good things must come to an end.”

The beta ends just eight days before the worldwide release of the game next Tuesday.

“In preparation for the launch of the game on Tuesday, July 27, the beta servers will be brought offline by Monday, July 19. At that time, all beta accounts and character information will be reset and the ability to create forum posts and comments on the StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty website will be unavailable until launch,” the company added.

Only eight days and 12 hours to go, youngins’.

Thanks, BN.
