2009 Delayed Until 2010, Christmas Cancelled


Actually, it's just the hey-where's-that-beta of Starcraft II that has been delayed until 2010, but all this slippage is starting to make the field a bit sparse. Are all the games going to suddenly wake up next to each other in early 2010, thrash around in a panic, and delay things for another year-segment? Will Tiny Tim have anything to play come Christmas morn? The news of SC2's vanishment into the future came (in)directly from Acti-Blizz biz-duke, Bobby Kotick he said: “As we prepare for next year, we have moved the expected release dates for two games, Activision Publishing’s Singularity and Blizzard Entertainment’s StarCraft II, into 2010.”

He probably knows what he's doing, as the company brought in over a billion dollars last quarter, according to VG247's report. There will be more through there later, if anyone cares about Acti-Blizz money stuff. Not me, I'm off to smoke some feathers and get high on loose jazz.

Update: Ooh, apparently this is tied to a Battle.net delay.
