World of Warcraft Will Be Affected In the Ending Support for Windows XP and Vista by Blizzard

Posted time: Jul 21,2017


If you are still running Windows XP or Windows Vista, please note. Here is a bad news for you: some Blizzard games will no longer support those operating systems from October. Blizzard has just announced today that it is going to totally end support  for these older operating systems from October. By that time, the games including World of Warcraft, StarCraft II, Diablo III, Hearthstone and Heroes of the Storm will be affected varying degrees.

“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,”  Blizzard said when explaining their decision. “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."

“The games will not run on these older operating systems once they are no longer supported, so we encourage any players who are still using one of the older OSes 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.”

According to the latest Steam hardware survey, the number of people that actually be affected by this change will be reduced. In total, only 1% of the Steam users surveyed are running Windows XP oor Windows Vista. There are currently 125 million active Steam accounts, so we can assume that there are at least 125 million active PC players, so there are about 1.2 million players around the world may be affected by this change.

If you are one of them, then it may be the time for an upgrade if you can manage it. Most of the newer titles have completely skipped Vista and XP, so Windows 7 should be considered as the baseline minimum for an operating system, but even Windows 7 misses out on a swathe of the bigger titles.

Using illegal leveling and gold service might terminate the account!
