StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm beta is likely starting on June. In Anaheim, the MLG attendees will be able to play the game for the first time.

  • June? That’s weird. They’ve been talking about ‘two releases” in 2012 during the last couple of investor calls; I always assumed that meant HotS was getting bumped to 2013.

    Remember when the SC2 devs were saying the expansions would come out in 2011 and 2012? Those were the days… ^^

      Beta testing usually lasts around 6 months+. HOTS will be playable in the MLG Anaheim Tournament in June 8-10. That gives you an idea beta might start shortly after this event. (June-August range).

      If this ships early 2013, it’s going to be confusing. They usually ship RTS games around July.

      • Eldorian

        I don’t think they intentionally just ship RTS games in July. I think they ship them when they’re ready.

        • I think what MD means is that it would feel weird discovering the game during a different time of year. You know, that special moment when you open the box for the first time and you feel like a kid at Christmas?

    • Eldorian

      They talk about releasing at least 2 games this year. But I know they have every intention of trying to release Heart of the Swarm as well in 2012.

  • A 2012 release would be awesome. I can’t wait to see what happens to Sarah, and to play the Zerg campaign (I hate them but I love them, you know what I mean?).

    Fingers crossed!
