Though previously tagged for a ‘winter’ release, leaving room open for a launch as late as January or February, it is now confirmed Legacy of the Void, the third part of the Starcraft 2 story, will release before the end of the year. The confirmation came yesterday from Blizzard Entertainment president Mike Morhaime in a financial earnings call.

While there still isn’t an exact release date for the game, it has been in beta since March, and pre-orders recently opened, granting players access to the beta and a set of prologue missions for pre-purchasing the title.

Starcraft 2 Legacy of the Void will follow the alien race of the Protoss, and will be the concluding chapter to the Starcraft 2 games that began with Wings of Liberty in 2010, and then Heart of the Swarm in 2013. Are you ready for Legacy of the Void? Are you already ripping through your enemies with all the new units in the beta? Let us know in the comments.
