After 23 years at Blizzard, we were all a little surprised to hear that Chris Metzen had actually retired.
Blizzard has no plans to remaster the first two games in the Warcraft series, said the company's co-founder, Frank Pearce.
Pearce was part of a special 25th anniversary panel at this year's Blizzcon, which concluded with one of those wonderfully unpredictable Q&A sessions. It was at this point the question was raised by Blizzard fan, Jack.

The Angry Birds film, meanwhile - which I've watched and it isn't great - has made $327m.
The Duncan Jones Warcraft movie may be on course to flop in America (where it opens 10th June) but in China it's bigger than Star Wars: The Force Awakens - it's massive! Perhaps we'll see sequels after all.
