StarCraft II Wings Its Way To Liberty This July

Blizzard isn't in the habit of handing out release dates until it's good and ready, so when they say StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty will be hitting store shelves worldwide in late July, they damn well mean it.

StarCraft II is possibly the most eagerly anticipated real-time strategy game in the history of the genre, and now that anticipation has a white-hot target - July 27, 2010. That's when the game will start hitting retail stores around the world, including 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.

Is that a wide enough release for you?

"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 in just a few months."

You might want to start lining up outside your nearest retailer now.


    I think I may book in some leave time for 27th and 28th of July.

    I really didn't expect it to be released this early in the year, it's a nice surprise.

    damn a week after semester 2 of uni starts

      That's a good thing ain't it? Don't know about your Uni, but at UNSW Week 1 is basically lectures-only; plus the first 3-4 weeks are usually a breeze.

      I know, it comes out two days after my uni break ends, FFFFFFFUUUUUUUU-

    Oooo, awesome, SC2 on my birthday :D

      Happy birthday to you,
      Happy birthday to you...
      Congratulations, you now have a world famous birthday

        it was also the release date of the simpsons movie, possibly the only thing even longer in the making that starcraft 2!

          Let's hope it doesn't suck (like the simpsons movie did)

        "Happy birthday to you,
        Happy birthday to you…"

        Happy Birthday dear Daniel,
        Now play some Starcraft Two-o
