In a post on the official Battle.net site, Blizzard has reminded all participants that the StarCraft II beta will come to a close today, Monday, July 19th. Like you needed reminding…
But fear not! The opportunity to play StarCraft II (including that juicy sounding singleplayer component) will return in just over a week’s time, on July 27th.
“What happens on July 27th?” a voice in the crowd asks.
… You’re kidding, right?
From the Battle.net blog post:
“We would like to thank everyone who has participated in the StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty beta test. You’ve done an admirable job of testing, and we greatly appreciate all of the feedback you provided during this critical phase of development. It’s been a lot of fun; however, all good things must come to an end.
“In preparation for the launch of the game on Tuesday, July 27, the beta servers will be brought offline by Monday, July 19. At that time, all beta accounts and character information will be reset and the ability to create forum posts and comments on the StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty website will be unavailable until launch.
“In the meantime, we still encourage everyone to stay tuned to the website for exciting news and updates regarding the upcoming release.
Yes, that’s correct. July 27th will see the launch of StarCraft II around the world. Sources say that it’s OK to get excited about the game’s release, right… about… now!
