StarCraft 2 officially delayed

Activison's quarterly financial reports bring some more delay news.

Posted on
CEO Bobby Kotick announced that Starcraft II and Singularity have been moved to 2010, via IGN.
 
"As we prepare for next year, we have moved the expected release dates for two games, Activision Publishing's Singularity and Blizzard Entertainment's StarCraft II, into 2010," he said.
 
Kotick didn't explain the reasoning behind the delay, but added in earlier comments that this holiday would be very strong for the company.
 
Shortly after the news broke, Blizzard released the following statement: "Today we announced that StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty will not be ready for release by the end of 2009. Over the past couple of weeks, it has become clear that it will take longer than expected to prepare the new Battle.net for the launch of the game. The upgraded Battle.net is an integral part of the StarCraft II experience and will be an essential part of all of our games moving forward. This extra development time will be critical to help us realize our vision for the service."
 
The delay isn't exactly a surprise, as Blizzard is notorious for delays, and rumbles about StarCraft II had been growing. Last month, Stearne Agee analyst Arvind Bhatia predicted a delay.
