If you've been enjoying the StarCraft 2: Heart of the Swarm (http://www.joystiq.com/game/starcraft-2-heart-of-the-swarm) public beta, then we're afraid we've got some bad news it all comes to an end on March 1. Blizzard has announced the end of the open beta, which concludes just under two weeks prior to the launch of StarCraft 2: Heart of the Swarm on March 12.

StarCraft 2: Heart of the Swarm is the second volley in Blizzard's planned three-game delivery (http://www.joystiq.com/2008/10/10/starcraft-2-to-be-released-as-a-trilogy/) for the sequel to its highly-regarded real-time strategy series. We were able to spend some time with Heart of the Swarm last month, feel free to read our impressions (http://www.joystiq.com/2013/01/22/mission-to-evolve-starcraft-2-with-heart-of-the-swarm/) or, if you just want something pretty to look at, check out the game's introductory cinematic (http://www.joystiq.com/2013/01/22/starcraft-2-heart-of-the-swarm-cinematic-intro-lives-up-to-bliz/).
