    There's not even a hint of a release date from Blizzard. However...December has been suggested by some sources.

    It's Blizzard so they'll release when they're ready ... and rightly so. Still, I'd love to play what they've produced so far
    My only concern is should I hide my true identity? A costume maybe?

    0iD: Plus weeing in it every now & again does it good
    scaryjim: 10" is just a little large to hold comfortably in one hand, which makes it a lot harder to tap, swipe and generally interact with.

    Near cinematic in-game cutscenes.. looking fantastic.. hardly! Still going to be a top game, but not many people outside of Blizzard can get away with proclaiming normal maps as a graphical point of interest in 2008.

    Ah starcraft 2 can't come quickly enough, but I would be amazed if it was released this year. Blizzard deserve respect for being so loyal to pc gaming and at least theres one company who won't be gobbled up by EA

    Feels like dejavu folks; I hope Blizzard will 'finally' release it someday.

    Oh, Mac support would be nice...

    Looks interesting, not really sure if it will mirror the success of the origional. Some games should never try to be re-created.

    I don't really like it as I think the graphics are too cartoon like. Will steal get it though.

    Blizzard has some big shoes to fill on the original and the expansion set but hopefully with its history, it can do it.

    TBH, with the big commerical following in Korea, they should have followed EA's route of yearly updates on the game...(e.g. football, etc)

    Unfortunately this is the stereotypical sort of statement that over-hypes the game, leading to a more than disappointing release
