If even Blizzard is scared of Modern Warfare 2, can we really blame other companies for delaying their titles ;)

MW2 is an Activision/Blizzard title... neither have anything to do with the other :lol

Is anybody surprised?
Seeing as we were supposed to have the beta by now, and haven't seen as much as a peek? No.

Anyway, this is Blizzard we are speaking of. Like Valve, they do not do release dates, but rest assured, when it comes, SC2 will be epic.

A little? Curious to know if this is more for multiplayer balancing or the singleplayer campaign stuff (or both).
Probably Multiplayer balancing if anything but I suspect it will be really early 2010 like January or Feburary.

So at the rate that this is going, we'll get Diablo III sometime near 2011, and the other two parts to StarCraft II by the end of 2012-13. Great... just great.

Im butthurt.

Anytime before March and I might be able to go on. Its like developers want 2010 to be the greatest year ever so they are delaying their games.

Probably ;). Blizzard did say next expansion to WoW is 1 year after Lich King launch and Dev servers have shown up on server list for next expansion

This was obvious when the beta didn't start in June. They had once said they wanted a 4 month beta. There aren't 4 months left this year :lol

Further proof of three year cycle. 2010 is going to be awesome.
2010 is looking like the best year of this generation (going by console standards) by far, if only because so many AAA games have been delayed until then.

Not so much because of Starcraft, but because this will push Diablo back even more :\

This is a double delay pretty much.
2010 for SC2 and Wow expansion.
2011 for Diablo 3 and SC2 Part II.
Blizzard said SC2 expansions will take AT LEAST as long as WC3's expansion took. That expansion took about a year. I wouldn't be surprised if it takes 2 years for each expansion.
