Blizzard: StarCraft II beta launching in "the coming months"

starcraft2 Title says it all, really.

Blizzard COO Paul Sams just said the StarCraft II beta will take place in "the coming months."

"The beta will be played on a basic version of our new Battle.net architecture, which will give us the opportunity to test the game and the service in a live environment. Over time, we'll be adding features to deliver a second-generation Battle.net experience."

Also, more World of Warcraft content is expected for the year, with test realms and updates still using actual players.

Mention was also made of "unannounced MMO" which is still in the "no comment" area.

The news came as part of Activision's fourth quarter earnings call.

Good stuff there.
