Blizzard reveals that Heart of the Swarm is 99% complete

6/18/12 5:26pm

In a conversation with Kotaku, Blizzard’s lead designer Dustin Browder let us in on the upcoming expansion for StarCraft 2. Right now it's about 99% complete, "but that last 1% is a bitch”. Do tell Dustin, what seems to be the big to-do behind getting this expansion ready for store shelves?

“It’s the tuning and polish that really takes us a long time, and that’s where we get into the unknowns. Like we could do a play-through next week that we’re like, ‘Wow this is really great.’ Or we could do a play-through and we still have 250 items we wanna fix.”

Gotcha. Just trying to work out all those bugs before releasing a product is fine by me. Blizzard expected to see the expansion go live by early 2013 at the latest.  But with Diablo 3 still dominating the Internet, I can’t imagine why anyone at Blizzard would be in a hurry. Expect a more solid release window once the Beta gets underway.
