It was originally scheduled to arrive sometime before the end of 2009.

Blizzard Entertainment has announced that the game is now delayed.

StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty is the sequel to the popular real-time-strategy game set in space.

The company has not revealed any fresh launch date. Blizzard just said that it should arrive in the first half of next year.

The company said that the delay was mostly due to the upgrades required to support online game play.
