Originally due to close for eight weeks starting tomorrow, Blizzard has extended the closed beta of StarCraft II until June 8th NZST.

The extension is to help the developer “prepare for the final phase of Beta testing.”

“After this date, the beta test will be unavailable for several weeks while we make some hardware and software configuration changes for the final phase of the beta test and the release of the game,” reads StarCraft II’s official website.

“We plan to bring the beta test back online for a couple of weeks prior to the game's launch to complete our testing. We’ll have more details to share about when this final phase will begin at a later date.”

Back to it, then.
