Public StarCraft II beta this "summer"

It's almost a date from Blizzard!

In an uncharacteristically specific statement when it comes to putting dates on things, Blizzard chief Mike Morhaime has revealed that the public StarCraft II beta test will begin this "summer".

Morhaime was speaking during yesterday's Activision Blizzard investor conference.

Registration for the beta test has just opened. It's available to Blizzard game owners only, through the new Battle.net account system.

StarCraft II has no release date, but is expected to show its battle-scarred face on PC and Mac towards the end of this year. Well, Terrans - Wings of Liberty, the first instalment in its trilogy of titles, is.
