Rumor: Several Retail Chains Show December Release Date for Starcraft II
Fans of Blizzard’s popular RTS, Starcraft, have been waiting eagerly to get their hands on the highly-anticipated sequel almost since the first game came out. Well, if the internet rumblings are to be believed, they may not have to wait much longer. Right now, it looks like a handful of retail stores’ websites (specifically, Best Buy, Circuit City, and GameStop) are all showing a release date of December 3rd for Starcraft II. Granted, a retail chain pinning a release date on a game happens all the time, and is frequently proven wrong; but three chains with the same specific date at once? I guess a couple of them could be getting their information from one of them, but this is still a pretty unusual occurrence. This kind of bumps up the possibility of a 2008 release from “maybe, but don’t hold your breath” to “about 50-50,” in my book.
