Starcraft 2: Heart Of The Swarm a 2012 release - Blizzard

Game "probably" won't be done in time for next year

Blizzard has revealed that Starcraft 2: Heart Of The Swarm is likely to miss a 2011 release date.

According to Blizzard's Chris Sigaty, the second chapter int he SC2 trilogy "probably" won't be ready until 2012.

Speaking at a Blizzcon Q&A, the studio was cagey on details. It was able to confirm that Heart Of The Swarm take place after the events of Starcraft 2: Wings of Liberty.

Cheekily, it said that the title would be set less than 100 years after its predecessor, but greater than one hour.

Thanks chaps. That's very helpful.

The firm also failed to give us a release date for Diablo III - but did reveal that it would have PvP play and a Demon Hunter class.
