But Then Again, This Is Blizzard We’re Talking About So….Don’t Hold Your Breath

February 10, 2010 – Activision Blizzard President Mike Morhaime announced today that the Starcraft II closed beta will be coming this month.

The beta will allow players to test out the multiplayer gameplay and the new, improved Battle.net. In addition, it will allow Blizzard to gauge whether there are still improvements to be made to the title (it’s Blizzard, so yeah, they’ll find plenty, I’m sure, they always do) and it will allow the game to generate extra buzz as the forums begin filling with discussions about the gameplay.

The beta will be offered in North America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Taiwan and South Korea.

As far as we’re aware, gamers can still register and hope that they will be selected to participate in the beta. Details can be found at Blizzard’s StarCraft 2 site.

Let the buzz begin, and of course, let the collective waiting commence because we won’t know whether Blizzard is actually going through with this until the day the beta begins. No complaints, though, when they turn out games as good as they do.
