A very nice article actually, even if it say's the obvious. We won't see Starcraft II before '08 at the earliest.

Heres a short quote from the article:

Speaking of secrets, what is your timeline for release for “StarCraft II?”

It’s a secret! I can give you the old Blizzard mantra of: “It’ll ship when it’s ready,” but it’s something that historically, we’ve learned to keep release dates really close to the vest. I think all game developers are extremely optimistic, and we used to give optimistic dates and we’d disappoint our fans when we didn’t hit them. So now, I think we’ve just gotten more gun shy. The only thing I can give you [that’s] concrete is it’s not going to be this year. Some people were hoping, because of how advanced the game looks, that we’d have it out by Christmas, but that’s definitely not happening.

That’s a pretty long development cycle, if you started work on “StarCraft II” in 2003.

Lol, ditto. I imagine everyone saw that coming. Personally, it doesn't bother me as one might be. I'm not a big fan of Starcraft. I played the first and I never really got uber-obsessed with it like some people I know. ...'tis not my niche.

Well, in the meantime...we could play the original Starcraft assuming I can find my disc. And if not, i'm always up for some Warcraft III! :p

I only use the original for fun/defence maps anyway, so if there's a mapmaker on SC2, you know what I'll be doing. :D

Dude...

Ugh, don't even get me started.

I lost my keycode for WCIII, and since I had to reformat my computer and everything, the game's essentially "lost".

Life's a bitch and then you play WoW.

Or Guild Wars.

But Guild Wars sucks ass.

They care about the money WoW makes. Not WoW itself (they butchered the lore so hard it hurts, and the new expansion is set to kill WarCraft 4's plot.)
