Could StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm Be 18 Months Away?

Posted Fri, Oct 08, 2010 by Martuk

StarCraft II has certainly garnered a high amount of attention from fans of the series and Blizzard's project director Greg Canessa may have made an inadvertent slip of the tongue about the next installment of the StarCraft II trilogy. According to Game Informer, Canessa fielded a few questions about future features that included: broadcasting replays, upgrading profiles and trading replays. But Canessa stated that the features would be a main area of focus "over the next 18 months between now and Heart of the Swarm", the second installment of the StarCraft II saga and featuring the Zerg campaign. Assuming that this wasn't a simple slip of the tongue on Canessa’s part, that will put StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm launching sometime between early to mid 2012.
