Warcraft and Warcraft II Coming to Modern PCs "In Some Form or Fashion"

Blizzard is working on updating Warcraft and Warcraft II to allow their real-time strategy classics to work on current PCs, the company revealed over the weekend at the BlizzCon extravaganza. Polygon quotes World of Warcraft production director J. Allen Brack's response to a question about the games by saying a "side project" is in the works related to being able to play these older games, though he hedges saying this will be "to do something like that in some form or fashion." Here's the full quote:

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. We're fans of Warcraft 1, Warcraft 2, Warcraft 3, and we'd love to replay those games for sure.

Warcraft has to be one of my favorite RTS games. I really liked CoH but so much got lost in RTS games when having to get your own resources got dropped from the genre. Chopping down trees and mining added so much to a game, but I guess all that work and time was too much for the ADD crowd. Now were lucky if you have to gather even one resource never mind two.

Not ADD, but still don't like the old resource management options. You're penalized too hard for losing early foragers. You still have to gather resources in CoH, but it's more objective based, which is better for the game.
