Classic Warcraft games, or 'something like that,' could be coming to modern PCs

Warcraft: Orcs and Humans and Warcraft 2: Tides of Darkness may be coming to modern machines, thanks to a small team at Blizzard. Polygon reports that during the World of Warcraft question-and-answer panel at this year's BlizzCon, Production Director J. Allen Brack said that replaying the original trilogy was something he'd "love" to do.

"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 told a fan who asked if Blizzard had considered making the original trilogy compatible with modern computers. What form or fashion this will take isn't clear, however.

It's also not clear if this "side project" will ever manifest as something available for the everyday gamer. Blizzard has a lot on their plate with a new card game, an upcoming Diablo 3 expansion and even a movie adaptation of the Warcraft franchise. So, they're kinda busy. Just a little bit.
