I was just wondering if anyone has heard anything about starcraft 2. I've heard some rumors that it is or has came out already.

Where do you hear those rumors, especially the one that says it's out? You would know if it was even nearing completion as every game magazine would have a 20 page section on it every month for a year.
Blizzard has said they were working on a "top secret project" and were going to announce it in a month or so. A lot of people are thinking it's Starcraft 2, but most speculation says it's a starcraft/warcraft type of online multiplayer game.
Blizzard has even said that they game in question is NOT Starcraft 2. With that said, I think Blizzard is in the planning stages of Starcraft 2, and with the finishing of LOD (minus a patch they need to put out), Blizzard North should be free for such a development.
In summary, no, and don't expect it for at least another two years.
I haven't heard any rumors about Starcraft 2 and would not be expecting it any time soon.

Do you remember that Warcraft type quest game that acame out a few years back? The one where you played first person as the peon rebuilding the wonderific orc empire? No? Good. Neither does anyone else, and Blizzard wants it to stay that way.
My guess is that they may be trying to finally cash in on this gaming engine they used and turn it toward their more successful (and less innovative) game line...Starcraft. I suspect this secret project may involve some sort of Starcraft first person quest from the perspective of some colony member, like those books they've recently released (no, i haven't read any of the blizzard books...although i have been tempted because it would be a quick easy read that would definitely be entertaining to my more basic literary desires). Only time will tell...considering that I'm too lazy to ever bring it up with my acquaintance who works at Blizzard QA (he let me play the original Diablo 2 on his computer before it was beta released).
