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.[1] It is headed by Robert Bridenbecker.[2] At the time of its formation, it consisted of around a dozen individuals.[3]

It is responsible for the development of StarCraft: Remastered—a remake of the original StarCraft.[4] As of June 2017, the team was hiring staff, and is intended to be a permanent team among Blizzard's development teams.[5] 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.[6] Its next project, Warcraft III: Reforged, was announced at BlizzCon 2018.[7]

TriviaEdit

Members of the team originally joked that they should be titled "Team 0."[8]
