We can understand that there are still Windows XP purists out there, as it was one of Microsoft's best operating systems. But Vista? We can't think of a reason why anyone would still be using that thing. Anyway, with Microsoft dropping official support for these OS's a while ago, Blizzard is looking to implement a similar policy in the near future. Which means that the Windows XP days of World of Warcraft, StarCraft II, Diablo III, Hearthstone, and Heroes of the Storm, are coming to an end.

Here's the official statement.
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 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.

We're curious, will this change affect any of our readers?

Well it wont affect me really. I bought my system a year ago with windows 8 and upgraded straight away to windows 10. I do have an older pc i pulled out of purgatory to play some diablo 3 with my partner but Diablo 3 runs like ass on it anyway so we dont really use it. R.I.P. XP, was a good 15 years or so...
