No LAN support for StarCraft II

There is only Battle.net.

Blizzard chief game designer Rob Pardo has said that there will be no LAN support in StarCraft II, as all multiplayer will go through online portal Battle.net.

"We don't have any plans to support LAN," Pardo told IncGamers. "We will not support it."

The chances of StarCraft II heading to console are equally slim, or "zero per cent", according to Pardo - as if anyone thought otherwise.

StarCraft II: Terrans - Wings of Victory, the first of three parts, launches later this year on PC.
