14 Years Old Warcraft 3 Getting An Update

Blizzard’s Diablo II isn’t the only classic game the company continues to update. The studio today announced that it is planning to launch a new update this coming week for 2002’s Warcraft III.

Blizzard Classic Games lead Robert Bridenbecker made the announcement in a YouTube video posted today by Back2Warcraft. The video is themed around the Chinese version of Warcraft III, but Bridenbecker explains that the update, 1.27, will be released around the world on March 15.

“Thank you very much for your support over the past decade, playing Warcraft III,” he said. “Over the past few months, you may have noticed we have introduced a new battle platform. It’s introduced features like matchmaking [and] the ability to communicate with your friends at a level that is unparalleled to anything we have done with Warcraft III in the market before. And on top of that, we’re proud to announce that on March 15, the next patch for Warcraft III will be available in the market, simultaneously with the rest of the globe.”

At this point, Blizzard isn’t saying what’s included in the patch. Back2Warcraft suggests in this follow-up video that the patch may include balance tweaks, but this is not confirmed.
