If you have a Battle.net account with Blizzard, you might want to go check it right now. You might have been given a free copy of Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty.

Sites such as VG247 and Forbes report that gamers are finding free copies of Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty in their Battle.net account libraries. Oddly enough, though the company has verified with Forbes that the promotion is in fact happening, Blizzard has not officially commented on the situation and the official Starcraft II page and forums do not mention these free copies.

According to reports, as well as a reddit page, the gifts are given completely at random. Lucky gamers log into their Battle.net accounts, find the message, “You have been granted a free game,” and discover that they now own Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty. This game should not be confused with the Starter Edition that only includes the first five missions and restricts multiplayer to bot matches, games with friends, and the Arcade. People have reported that they have received the full game, player vs. player multiplayer and all.

The free copies have caused people to theorize that Blizzard is planning (or at the very least considering) to make Starcraft II a completely free game.
