Oh, Blizzard, how you play with our hearts. “What’s he rambling on about this time?” “What gripe/theory/suggestion does he have now?” I’m certain that’s what a few of you who have read my previous entries here on StarCraft Fan are saying. Well, I apologize if I come off as a skeptic or highly analytical type, but my mind is constantly going at full speed. And when you’re a writer trying to get your name and your identity out there for the masses to recognize, you’re better off being yourself. And as I just said, if I appear to be one of those skeptics or highly analytical types, then I apologize, but that’s exactly the type of person I am.
Having said that, I am also a hardcore gamer with a love for good games and a hatred towards ambiguous release dates. That is why I am so eager to find out when Blizzard will reveal the big launch date for StarCraft II. And that is why I am curious about something yet again. The subject of my curiosity this time around: StarCraft II’s official website. You see, over the past few weeks I’ve noticed some changes on the site as I am sure many of you have. New graphics, loading screens, more images. There are little things here and there on StarCraft II’s official website that lead me to believe that production of StarCraft II has probably reached a climactic point.
And now I ask myself: Could it be that StarCraft II is nearing completion? Could all these website additions, overhauls, and implementations be an indication that the folks over at Blizzard are reaching the final stages of development for StarCraft II? It would certainly make sense to pretty up the site right before the game’s launch date is announced. They could be making room for the ‘buy online’ tab or maybe a ‘download the demo now’ link.
I honestly believe that there’s a reason for the site being all dolled up all of a sudden. And if the reason for that is because of the game’s imminent launch, then I can honestly say I look forward to even more site updates. If not, well, then I guess the StarCraft II website really is misleading. Or maybe, just maybe, it’s me being overly analytical. Maybe.
