No Plans For Warcraft 1 and 2 Remaster

WowStormwind

During BlizzCon, Blizzard Co-Founder Frank Pearce did a Q&A special to celebrate Warcraft’s 25th Anniversary. During the Q&A Pearce was asked if there are plans of Warcraft 1 and 2 being remastered much like how the original Diablo will be remastered in Diablo 3. Pearce stated..

“We are fortunate enough to have all of the original source code and assets to everything we’ve done in the past. But actually, it turns out, it’s really hard to access that stuff, unlock it, and figure out how it all works. Because we’re old, we’ve forgotten.”

“We had some dedicated folks that were passionate about the idea, dig up the Warcraft 1 assets and code. They got it working and they got it running in a window. And I played it. Warcraft: Orcs & Humans was awesome for its time. I promise you, in today’s world, by today’s standards, it’s just not that fun anymore.”

“We have limited resources with what they choose to do and for now, they’d rather work on amazing new content for WoW or Overwatch and even evaluate a future project rather than go back to “dig up fossils.”

“We appreciate your enthusiasm for these old games. We also love them.”
