Blizzard's Mike Morhaime revealed that StarCraft II is currently planned on being released at the end of 2009. The information came during Activision's pre-E3 conference call. "We're targeting an end of year release, this year, for StarCraft II," said Morhaime.
Wow. That's amazing news! Blizzard will surely stick to this release window... wait... what's that Mike? "But as always, we won't release it until it meets our standards and the expectations of our players," he continued. Oh, Blizzard. That's so like you guys. Giving with one hand and taking away with the other.
It's possible that the game will actually be released this year as the singleplayer component will only be the Terran campaign and the multiplayer beta should be kicking off sometime this summer.
Let's all hope that we'll be playing this highly-anticipated game this year.
