‘Starcraft 2′ Out In June, According to Gamestop [UPDATE]

The country’s biggest gaming chain is directing gamers to a June 2 release.


When I was visiting my local Gamestop yesterday, the cashier asked me if I wanted to pre-order any games. She handed me a list of titles, and “Starcraft 2” immediately caught my eye. It listed the release date as June 2. When I inquired if the date was correct, she casually replied, “Yeah,” and seemed indifferent to my surprise.

The list also has release dates for other games, like “Uncharted 2” for October 2. Take a look at the flyer to see them all:

This isn’t the first time Gamestop has given a release date for “Starcraft 2.” However, Blizzard COO Paul Sams did say recently that we’d see one “frontline” title this year.

I’ve asked Blizzard to comment, and will update you as soon as we hear anything.

UPDATE, 5:30pm EST: We spoke with a Blizzard rep who stated that the company has not announced a release date for “Starcraft 2.” He would not confirm or deny the accuracy of a June date.
