StarCraft II Beta Extended Until June 7th

While July 27th may feel like an enter­ni­ty away there is some good news for die hard Star­Craft fans that have been dread­ing the end of the Star­Craft II beta.  Bliz­zard announced yes­ter­day that it would be extend­ing the beta for Star­Craft II until June 7th. 
The game will be tak­en down and be made unavail­able for some  time as they go into the final phase of test­ing.  Dur­ing this down­time bliz­zard will be mak­ing final hard­ware and soft­ware tweaks.  The beta will be put back up two weeks pri­or to the release.  The off­i­cal state­ment fol­lows below:
“We pre­vi­ous­ly announced that the first phase of the Star­Craft II beta test would be com­ing to a close in all regions on Mon­day, May 31. In order to pre­pare for the final phase of beta test­ing, we plan to extend the cur­rent phase in all regions until Mon­day, June 7. 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. 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.
We’d like to thank all of our beta-test par­tic­i­pants for your enthu­si­asm, ded­i­ca­tion, and valu­able feed­back dur­ing the beta test, and we look for­ward to hear­ing more of your thoughts on the Star­Craft II beta test as the game’s July 27 launch approach­es”
