Rumor: China to get StarCraft II beta before May


The three largest Chinese StarCraft II fansites are reporting that a beta for the long-awaited sequel will launch sometime before May.

Each site has apparently been given keys to give away, starting as early as this week.

Each site is officially approved by Blizzard, one site's community manager claimed during an interview, and the news supposedly came straight from Blizzard's Representative Office in China.

Now, before you get too excited, remember that we have received no official word from Blizzard on this - so stay calm. Take it as a rumor, or bad translation, until we hear otherwise. We don't want you to pop an artery for no good reason.
