  • Blizzard Dropping Windows XP And Vista announces Blizzard will start dropping support for Windows XP and Windows Vista beginning later this year.

    By Spyrian

    Starting later this year, we will begin the process of ending support for Windows XP and Windows Vista in World of Warcraft, StarCraft II, Diablo III, Hearthstone, and Heroes of the Storm.

    Microsoft ceased mainstream support for these versions of Windows in 2009 and 2012, respectively, but since a decent portion of our audience was still using them at the time, we continued supporting them.

    However, there have been three major Windows releases since Vista, and at this point, the vast majority of our audience has upgraded to one of the newer versions.

    After these older operating systems are no longer supported, the games will not run on them, so we encourage any players who are still using one of the older OS'es to upgrade to a newer version.

    We’ll be rolling out this change on a staggered schedule, and will post further notices as we get closer to making the change for each game.

    I thought Vista was a good OS. It was quite the upgrade. Graphically it was way above XP IMO.
