That Blizzard must be delaying some games...

Blizzard have just announced today that their Beta for Starcraft 2 is still months away and with Blizzard confirming that only one frontline Blizzard game being released in 2009 it looks like we may not see either Diablo 3 or Starcraft 2 for a little while yet. The games were supposed to be released this Spring but now they do not have release dates. It will be a matter of time before they announce which one will be released this year but my guess is it could be Diablo 3 due to Starcraft 2 no doubt undertaking a rigorous beta to cater to their fans.

This could be seen as a good thing what with some games companies releasing games half finished so it is good that Blizzard are stepping out from the rest in order to release good quality games. EA also seems to be following the same trend recently by postponing some of their titles such as The Sims 3 for a later release.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has also been confirmed by Activision and is set to be released in the holiday quarter with Activision claiming 2009 "to be a very exciting year for the franchise as we expect this year's launch is likely going to be the most anticipated title of all of 2009". Hopefully this means that Infinity Ward are hard at work creating yet another excellant game.

Have played Burnout Paradise and I must say it is brilliant. Criterion have done a splendid job with the way the game presents itself and also the conversion to PC. My hat goes off to them and EA for a brilliant job there. Should also be seeing yet more content being released for the game in the coming months.

Other than that it started snowing here in Lincolnshire this afternoon which is great. It has since stopped the last time I checked. No more havoc for us then!
