No StarCraft II beta until next year

Confirmation from Russian expo.

StarCraft II producer Chris Sigaty has confirmed that the game's beta test, promised for late 2009, has been pushed back to 2010.

Sigaty made the announcement during a presentation at Russian games expo IgroMir, according to Goha.ru and fansite StarCraft Legacy.

The latest word from Blizzard is that the game - or rather, first chapter Wings of Liberty - is due to be released in the second quarter of next year. Spring, in other words, between April and June.

The beta will introduce the ambitious new Battle.net as well as the game itself.
