Starcraft II Could Sell 4 Million Copies
Analyst Michael Pachter from Wedbush believes that Starcraft II will sell 4 million copies in the first few months after it’s release.
Now, it’s just a matter of when that will be. Blizzard had promised an open beta Summer ’09 and with summer winding down fans are left wondering “when”. Hopes of the game being released in 2009 however are dimming. “Nobody (truly nobody) knows how long the StarCraft II beta will take,” chimed in Pachter when speaking to Gamasutra today. “It’s highly likely that the game is polished, with few or no bugs.”
Another analyst, Jess Lubert commented, “If [the beta] starts in August and takes 5-6 months, then launching the game this year is next to impossible.”
In the end, it’s just Blizzard being Blizzard.
I guess we’ll do what we’ve always done in the past and keep playing the waiting game.
