Blizzard Axes LAN Play for StarCraft 2

Blizzard senior VP Rob Pardo has confirmed that the company's upcoming RTS sequel StarCraft II will not feature LAN multiplayer support.

The feature has been cut due to the "planned technology to be incorporated into Battle.net," according to a comment issued to IncGamers. nope Blizzard has yet to finalize the feature set for the new Battle.net. A multiplayer StarCraft II beta test is scheduled to begin later this summer.
