Starcraft 2: Heart Of The Swarm To Release In 2012


Starcraft 2: Heart Of The Swarm To Release In 2012. Blizzard has announced that it would not release its Starcraft 2: Heart Of The Swarm this year. According to Blizzard's Chris Sigaty, the second chapter in the SC2 trilogy is unlikely to release before 2012. At a press conference, Blizzard was not very forthcoming on the details but confirmed that Heart Of The Swarm take place after the events of Starcraft 2: Wings of Liberty.

The studio revealed that the title would be set less than 100 years after its predecessor and it would be greater than one hour. Blizzard had started working on "StarCraft 2: Wings of Liberty" follow-up release of "Heart of the Swarm" in August. It was not announced at that time that when the company is planning to ship the SC2. More than one month has passed now but the studio is yet to set an official date.



According to a GameSpot report, Battle.net project director Greg Canessa said that Battle.net feature upgrades would be "a main area of focus we're going to be seeing on the 'Starcraft [2]' side over the next 18 months between now and 'Heart of the Swarm.”

Going by Canessa’s timeframe we can assume that the SC2 would release in the Spring/Summer 2012. The second installment for the "SC2" trilogy will be Zerg-focused and it will be single-player content heavy with some RPG elements. It will also come loaded with some new multiplayer features. Blizzard today also failed to give us a release date for Diablo III. The studio however, announced that it would have PvP play and a Demon Hunter class.

  3. I'm sure it will get postponed again. Blizzard has always had issues getting stuff out in a timely matter that wasn't WoW related. Wasn't like a 7 year wait for Warcraft 3?

  5. Ah, Blizzard is definitely banking off of Starcraft. My brother kept trying non-stop to bum money off of me to get SC2 when it came out. :S
