Default Starcraft 2 to be announced today

www.starcraft2.com

Will it be worth the wait?

I dont think it's Starcraft 2. It may be:

"StarCraft universe related game, but Bill Roper the PR guy for Blizzard has flatly denied that StarCraft2 is in development"

I think it's a new Warcraft game!

www.warcraft.com

Seriously, I did hear recently that the game announced was specifically not going to be Starcraft 2. However, perhaps that was in relation to another announcement?

Oh, well, we should know by 5pm PST.

don't you think Blizzard thinks everyone knows that SC2 is in development and would happily throw everyone for a loop?

Hell, it might be a whole new universe... I can only hope.

Why is it Starcraft 2, Cotita? It's common for companies to register domains related to their products. Just because Blizzard owns that domain name doesn't necessarily mean it's Stacraft 2.

What about the picture makes you think it's Starcraft 2, anyway? All I see is something that looks REALLY blurred out.

Btw, I would think it kind of odd for Blizzard to announce a new PC RTS product so close to the release of Warcraft III. It might undercut their own sales...

Personally, my guess would be it's a console game. But, we'll know in an hour.

That starcraft 2 domain has been around for a LONG time.
