Pinch yourself. Now look around the room and make sure there aren’t any random celebrities embroiled in madcap mud-wrestling battles. Done? Ok, now that we’ve proven you’re not dreaming, feel free to starting hooting, hollering, and dancing embarrassing little jigs, because StarCraft II is coming. Better still, it’s only a few months away. Mark your calendars and cancel your summer vacation plans, folks, because StarCraft II’s launching worldwide on July 27, 2010.
“We’ve been looking forward to revisiting the StarCraft universe for many years, and we’re excited that the time for that is almost here,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “Thanks to our beta testers, we’re making great progress on the final stages of development, and we’ll be ready to welcome players all over the world to StarCraft II and the new Battle.net in just a few months.”
There is, however, a bit of a catch: you won’t be downloading the game online. At least, not initially. If you’re hoping to join the fray on day one, you’ll be forced to jump through whatever hoops your local game retailer has decided to set up. Fortunately, StarCraft II will invade Blizzard’s online store “shortly after” its retail release.
However, as StarCraft geeks, we’re actually looking forward to braving the day-one retail riot. Why? Because it’s probably the closest thing we’ll ever see to a real-life Zerg rush.
