Nothing like starting off the day with a little “I’ll believe it when I see it” news.
Today’s entry comes via the DreamHack computer festival (apparently the “world’s largest” festival of its kind), where Press2Play.TV conducted an interview with two StarCraft 2 lead designers, Dustin Browder and Chris Sigaty. During said interview, in addition to talking extensively about the game’s campaign structure, mission types and music design, Sigaty said that Blizzard is aiming to release the long awaited sequel...wait for it...sometime this year. However, in typical developer fashion, Sigaty added that “We're not going to ship the game until it’s ready.” Well, obviously.
While I remain hopeful on behalf of all those diehard StarCraft fans out there, it would be mighty impressive if the game was actually released this year. Then again, I’m a big proponent of not hearing about games until they are a few months from being released (I’m over all this teasing a game that’s two years away from release nonsense), so we’ll see if Blizzard can pull something like that off with one of their most anticipated games ever.
What are the odds we’ll see StarCraft 2 by the end of the year?
