Starcraft 2 beta test before release

At the Activision conference call, Paul Sams , Blizzard’s Chief Operating Officer, has announced the company will be doing a beta test for Starcraft 2 on a revamped Battle.net in the run up the game’s retail release.

Regretfully, not one single scrap of detail was revealed at the call, so we will have next to no idea on what the beta test will consist of, or how many users will be let in. Your wild random guesses are as good as ours then.

Furthermore, the game itself has no set release as of yet, but is currently expected in late 2009.
