You may recall from the Platform Nation review of StarCraft 2 that the game released at the end of July this year is simply part one of a trilogy. So when can you get your hands on the second part? Up until now, Blizzard have been tight lipped about it, but in an interview with Gamespot UK this week Battle.net project director Greg Canessa, drops a strong hint that 2012 is how long we’ll have to wait. OK so it’s not exactly a solid confirmation but it’s the closest thing we have to date.
When discussing such future Battle.net features as trading replays, broadcasting replays, and upgrading profiles, he said they were “a main area of focus we’re going to be seeing on the Starcraft [II] side over the next 18 months between now and Heart of the Swarm.”
18 Months! That means around April 2012. Blizzard have since stressed to Gamespot that a release date has not been confirmed but what do you think? Is almost 2 years too long to wait between parts of a trilogy?
