Blizzard has announced that it will end support for older operating systems this October. Going into more details, World of Warcraft, StarCraft II, Diablo III, Hearthstone and Heroes of the Storm will stop supporting both Windows XP and Windows Vista in October.
Back in February, Blizzard hinted at dropping support for both Windows XP and Windows Vista in 2017. As such, owners of the aforementioned games will have to move on to a newer operating system in order to keep playing these titles.
As Blizzard claimed:
“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.”
