World of Warcraft Classic Helmed by Separate Team But Very Early in Development; Will Take a lot of Community Feedback


Blizzard’s vanilla WoW server, World of Warcraft Classic, is being developed by a separate team but is still very early in development.

At this year’s BlizzCon event, Youtube channel Tradechat sat down with creative director Alex Afrasiabi and art director Chris Robinson to talk about the Battle for Azeroth expansion, but also mentioned World of Warcraft Classic, which is said to be very early in development at this point. Not much is known about the vanilla server option apart from the fact that it is truly happening. You can watch the interview below:

During an interview with Youtuber Jessie Cox, game director Ion Hazzikostas said that World of Warcraft Classic is being developed by a separate development team, and that it will take a lot feedback from the World of Warcraft community. You can watch that interview below as well:

World of Warcraft Classic was announced last weekend during Blizzard’s BlizzCon 2017 keynote. “We want to reproduce the game experience that we all enjoyed from the original classic WoW without the launch experience,” J. Allen Brack, executive producer on World of Warcraft, said during the keynote.
