Blizzard: Starcraft 2 Beta and new Battle.Net in 2009
Starcraft fans have been waiting for more than ten years now, but it seems like Blizzard finally wants to release a Beta version of Starcraft 2.
The Starcraft 2 Beta is supposed to come in the next months, says Blizzard's Paul Sams. Thus Blizzard probably wants to stick to the 2009 release for the game. At the same time a completely overhauled version of the Battle.Net is said to be launched for testing.
Besides this good news for Starcraft fans the company also released the financial numbers for 2008. The turnover increased from 1.349 billion to 3 billion US Dollars, but the net income of 227 million Us Dollars changed to a slight loss of 0.2 million US Dollars, says Golem.
