Warcraft III: Reforged revamping Blizzard’s classic RTS

Having remastered StarCraft last year, Blizzard are now updating another of their classic real-time strategy games: Warcraft III. During BlizzCon today they announced Warcraft III: Reforged, a revamped release of WC3 with redone artwork, UI improvements, and other such modern fancying-up. Wait. Hang on. Warcraft III first came out on 2002? That can't be right. That would mean... oh god, this is a lot to…

We might still be recovering from Starcraft's 20th birthday bash, but Blizzard are still ready to party like it's 2002.

Whether or not it's part of remastering plans, we've certainly reason to celebrate: Blizzard rolled out a new public test build of Warcraft 3 yesterday,…

Seems Blizzard Are Revamping Diablo 2, StarCraft, WC3

[Update: Oh! Blizzard told GameSpot it's simply to maintain them. Dreams are always so short-lived. Hey, maybe do consider revamping them though! That would be lovely. Official support for modern resolutions in Diablo II would be a grand start.] Once a games studio has been around for long enough, different generations of players will each have their own idea of the devs' finest days. Perhaps…

StarCraft Modders Making Unofficial Sequel To WarCraft III

That's StarCraft II, mind you. Otherwise, I think that'd be a dequel, and I'm not sure anyone actually wants one of those. But yes, WarCraft: A New Dawn is picking up the severed orc hand of maximum strategy Blizzard dropped after WoW exploded. As of now, it's very much a work-in-progress, but the end goal is to craftily craft StarCraft into "a breathtaking, lore-abiding storyline…
