StarCraft® II

Actual HOTS release date?

Is the release date for HOTS on the 3rd of February a simultaneous global release or is it different regionally?

That is, does it release simultaneously at 12AM U.S. Time (PST)on the 3rd, meaning it releases in Australia at 5PM on the 3rd, in the UK at 8PM on 3rd etc.

Or is it staged, releasing at 12AM regionally? Meaning it would release at 12AM in Australia, in the UK at 12AM, the US at 12AM?

Any clarification would be appreciated.

Scratch the 3rd, I meant the 12th.

Month and date is backward

So you are indeed aware it is the 12th of March? The posts are confusing me (*_____*)

Its the 12th of March... not Feb. What are you smoking?

Yes am aware it's March. Kind of spaced out right now, been in Amsterdam for a week.

The question is still relevant, regardless of the actual release date.

Much like how they approach Diablo or WoW releases, I would assume. Digital Download is open on the 12th. Regional sales of hard copies will depend on when your local stores get their deliveries. Regional releases tend to have less to do with what Blizzard wants and more to do with local custom checks and laws setting the timeframe.
