During a full-year earnings call, Activision Blizzard let loose details surrounding their movements for 2010, with some stellar information landing for anyone on the edge of their seat for StarCraft II
A closed beta for the space-faring RTS sequel will kick off this month and include thousands of participants to "generate new excitement" for the game, while it is reportedly still on track for release mid 2010. And that's not too far away.
Other bits of news that found their way out of the conference call were:
- Battlenet 2.0 will launch when the SCII Beta launches, and SCII will be able to be downloaded directly from Battlenet 2.0 - the first of many games being offered through the service.
- The long-awaited Blur from Bizarre Creations will ship Q2, but will also be initially playable in multiplayer beta form this march.
- Raven Software's original IP, Singularity, will also finally see the light of day after being pushed back in 09 with news it will launch in Q2 as well.
Looks like we're in for a very Activision Blizzard Easter period folks.
