Many froth-mouthed fans of Blizzard's intergalactic real-time strategy masterpiece Starcraft
have anxiously been awaiting word on when the next installment of the series
would land in their anticipatory laps. Blizz has been characteristically tight-lipped about the title's launch window, though we were recently informed that an online SKU search for Starcraft II
on Best Buy
, Circuit City
, and Gamestop's
web sites reveal the same supposed release date of December 3, 2008. With no confirmation from Blizzard, it's far from official -- though we imagine this won't stop dedicated zerglings
from dropping by the office tomorrow, and requesting off the last month of the year.
