Rumor: Next StarCraft II Episode Arriving in 18 Months

The blurb was apparently spoken at GDC 2010 earlier today during a Blizzard press conference. According to Gamespot, director Greg Canessa accidentally revealed the targeted release when dicussing the future plans for

“a main area of focus we’re going to be seeing on the Starcraft [II] side over the next 18 months between now and Heart of the Swarm.”

As a lot of us already know, Blizzard is usually stringent when it comes to concrete release dates, preferring to simply say “when it’s done” if asked.

Blizzard was quick to deny any confirmation of an actual release date, but they did confirm that there won’t be any new StarCraft II news in the upcoming Blizzcon 2010.

Sorry Zerg players, you’ll have to wait a bit longer before you can assimilate the rest of the universe. Assuming we’re not all dead by then.
