Do you hear that? It's the sound of millions of hearts beating at an extreme pace! It's been more than a decade, but the sequel to quite possibly the greatest RTS game ever made is now dated for release -- July 27th, 2010!
The game will be available in the United States, Canada, Europe, South Korea, Australia, New Zealand, Russia, Mexico, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, the Philippines, and the regions of Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macau. Blizzard will offer it via digital download shortly thereafter.
"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."
And just in time for this announcement we've released a StarCraft II portal with the largest selection of StarCraft II custom maps on the internet, powered by the great mod community at SC2Mapster!
