More news on the delayed game on Starcraft II was released from BlizzCon 2008 yesterday. Below links to a video about the announcement:

Here’s a summary of what is plan for Starcraft II:

  • Starcraft II will now be in 3 separate part, a trilogy. The first game – Wings of Liberty – would be on the Terrans. Second, Heart of the Swarm on the Zergs. The Legacy of the Void, the third and final part of the trilogy will be on the Protoss.
  • Each game would contain around 26 to 30 missions in the campaigns.
  • Multiplayers will be available through each game. Each races are balanced.

However, the release date have stayed the game – for 2009. But would all three parts comes out in the same year? I highly doubt it. Probably it would take another year or so for the entire package to be fully complete.

Other Things Should Consider:

  • The release date of the other 2 game – Zerg and Protoss – might even take 2 years to be release.
  • The price. You would have to pay for the same game for 3 times?!

There is bad news for all you gamers out there that were hoping to buy Starcraft 2 for this Christmas. Actvision had stated that the game would not be ready until somewhere around 2009.

Next year’s offerings from Activision Blizzard should include highly anticipated PC strategy title StarCraft II, the sequel to one of the world’s most enduringly popular games. — mentioned by Activision Asia Pacific VP Phillip Early at the Activate Asia Pacific.

With the affect of the two company – Actvision and Blizzard – merging, I guess 2009 is better than never? Let’s just hope this time they will make it in time!
