StarCraft IIEdit

The following section contains information from a previous version of StarCraft II which is no longer valid.

The lurker egg was removed by the beta as the lurker had been cancelled.[1] The egg is larger than a normal egg but uses the normal egg portrait.[2] It is still present in the StarCraft II map editor.[3]

The lurker egg was replaced by the lurker cocoon when the lurker was reintroduced in the Heart of the Swarm campaign and Legacy of the Void multiplayer.
