Classic Games is a division of Blizzard Entertainment, founded in/by 2015. Its stated role is to 'restore' the 'classic games' of Blizzard, such as StarCraft, Warcraft III, and Diablo II. It is headed by Robert Bridenbecker. At the time of its formation, it consisted of around a dozen individuals.
It is responsible for the development of StarCraft: Remastered—a remake of the original StarCraft. As of June 2017, the team was hiring staff, and is intended to be a permanent team among Blizzard's development teams. It is currently involved in maintaining the "classic servers" of Diablo II and Warcraft III, as neither of these games are integrated with the current battle.net client. Its next project, Warcraft III: Reforged, was announced at BlizzCon 2018.
Members of the team originally joked that they should be titled "Team 0."
