Blizzard’s annual Blizzcon event in Anaheim, California, kicked off on Friday with various game-related announcements, but the most surprising one dug back into the company’s history.
Finally, fans’ requests for a major turn back of the World of Warcraft clock are coming to life in the form of World of Warcraft Classic.
After countless shutdowns, arguments, and meetings over the past few years, along with petitions begging the company to make a paid version of what they wanted, Blizzard is finally relenting with its own official take on the concept.
No release date, footage, or other gameplay details have yet been revealed, though Blizzard may disclose more about the project during various Blizzcon panels this weekend. Instead, Blizzard showed fans a trailer that rewound various cinematic clips from the game’s expansions before showing a familiar-looking bearded dwarf walking in the snow from the game’s very first edition.
