In the future, Blizzard will take you back to the past. Specifically, they're taking you back about 13 years to where the World of Warcraft began. That's right, Blizzard announced today an official return to the original WoW with the upcoming release of World of Warcraft Classic.

Just as the original game caused you to drop out of school, the return of the classic will now cause you to drop out of your job and say farewell to your wife and kids. Your life once again belongs to World of Warcraft. World of Warcraft Classic means you'll soon be able to experience WoW with no expansions. You will once again have to pay for new character abilities. Get ready for that hefty grind just to get a mount. Will they also roll back the graphics? Maybe! Will you get addicted again? Probably!

World of Warcraft Classic doesn't yet have a release date, but I'm sure we'll be hearing more about it in the days/weeks/months(?) ahead.
