Well, this is a little disappointing. It's bad enough the game's been pushed back to next year but now it seems the beta will be as well. Eurogamer has a report that the producer of StarCraft II
confirmed the beta will no longer be available this year but is scheduled for 2010. I wonder if the delay is due to the new implementation of Battle.net or if there's truly some more tweaking needed in the game. Blizzard is banking on some new tech behind Battle.net.
