A small team within Blizzard Entertainment is working to bring the original Warcraft real-time strategy games — Warcraft: Orcs & Humans and Warcraft 2: Tides of Darkness — to modern PCs, according to World of Warcraft production director J. Allen Brack.
At the World of Warcraft question and answer panel at BlizzCon 2013, Brack revealed the "side project" to a fan who asked if Blizzard would consider making the older Warcraft games compatible with modern computers.
"So, we actually have a guy on our team — actually several guys on our team — who are actually working on a side project to do something like that in some form or fashion," Brack said. "We're fans of Warcraft 1, Warcraft 2, Warcraft 3, and we'd love to replay those games for sure."
During BlizzCon 2013's opening ceremony, Blizzard announced a new expansion for World of Warcraft, Warlords of Draenor. The forthcoming add-on ties into the franchise's early fiction and "sends players to the world of Draenor at a pivotal moment in history to fight against and alongside legends from Warcraft's brutal past."
Warcraft: Orcs & Humans was first released for MS-DOS in 1994 and ported to Mac OS two years later. Warcraft 2: Tides of Darkness first hit in 1995 and received an expansion pack, Beyond the Dark Portal, the following year.
