[EDIT: Hope you folks already got to this video, because Blizzard's lawdogs just issued a cease-and-desist letter threatening to make ushave Bobby Kotick over for Christmas dinnerif we didn't take it down. On the downside, that means we're not hosting it any more. On the plus side, that means it was clearly legit and not a fan-made hoax. And honestly - this is the internet. You can buy a human liver on the web. We're thinking you can still find this vid if you look hard enough.]
A rough animatic for a lengthy cut scene has just surfaced on the internet, and many StarCraft II fans believe it is for the final cutscene for StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm. It’s possible that this is all just a hoax, a well-made fan video from someone looking to play a prank on the world. But even if the video is a fake, it sure is convincing. Placeholder voice acting, the occasional cut to a story board sketch, and the time lines all make the rough cut scene seem legitimate. DO NOT READ ANY FURTHER if you are worried about potentially spoiling the campaign for StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm.
No official release date has been announced for StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm. If the video is legitimate, we wouldn’t be surprised if Blizzard scrapped the whole thing and crafted a brand new ending.
