Blizzard’s epic title StarCraft II has been delayed. The original plan was to release the title by the end of 2009 and now Blizzard is shooting for the first half of 2010. Fanboys have been drooling over the idea of a new StarCraft for over a decade now and will have to wait just a tiny bit longer. We all know how Blizzard works by now, so in light of the delay, we can expect this title to be at peak polish by its not-so-hasty release.
Blizzard’s Official Statement:
Today we announced that StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty will not be ready for release by the end of 2009. Over the past couple of weeks, it has become clear that it will take longer than expected to prepare the new Battle.net for the launch of the game. The upgraded Battle.net is an integral part of the StarCraft II experience and will be an essential part of all of our games moving forward. This extra development time will be critical to help us realize our vision for the service.
Along with StarCraft II, Bioware’s new RPG Dragon Age: Origins has been delayed. Dragon Age was officially delayed after some internet rumors were spread. The Origins (I made a funny) of the delay have not been disclosed, but we can be sure that Bioware will release it when its damn good and ready.
“Dragon Age: Origins will be released on November 3rd in North America and November 6 in Europe on Xbox 360 and PC. The PlayStation 3 version will follow later in November.” said Bioware’s Matt Atwood
I am glad that Dragon Age will still be in my console before years end. In regards to StarCraft II, I hope to own a powerful enough computer by then!
