A stay of execution has been given to the StarCraft II beta which was due to cease yesterday, but will now instead close down next week.

Once it closes it'll be offline for "several weeks" say Blizzard, as they set about to make "configuration changes" for the final phase of beta.

"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," posted Blizz on the StarCraft II community site, reports Eurogamer. It was to end May 31st, likely causing grown men to weep.

"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," they continued.

"We plan to bring the beta test back online for a couple of weeks prior to the game’s launch to complete our testing." StarCraft II releases exclusively on PC July 27th.
