- Not to be confused with Blizzard Classic Games.
Classic Games is a division of Blizzard Entertainment, founded in 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 is 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. As of BlizzCon 2017, the team is open to remastering Warcraft: Orcs & Humans and Warcraft II. At BlizzCon 2018, the development of Warcraft III: Reforged was revealed.
- Members of the team originally joked that they should be titled "Team 0."
