Fans of Starcraft 2 have been anticipating it’s upcoming expansion for some time now, but we still don’t have a concrete release date. What we do have is a release window. Blizzard chief executive Mike Morhaime recently revealed that Blizzard is planning to launch Heart of the Swarm in the “first half of 2013.” Having been in beta for a few months already, the developer is making progress, but Blizzard is Blizzard.
They’ll release the expansion whenever they feel it’s ready, as Morhaime explains “we will take as much time as is needed to ensure that Heart of the Swarm meets the expectations of our players, as well as our own high standards.” The expansion will focus on the Zerg faction, in the same way the original game did the Humans. Different units will be added, along with a continuation of the campaign.
