World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria developer Blizzard has revealed that is pro-Windows 8, and has stated that it will expand to the Microsoft OS once it launches.

Speaking with CVG, senior software engineer, Darren Williams confirmed the studio’s acceptance of Windows 8, “We put our games on platforms our players are already on, so yeah, it will be available on Windows 8. I think that we’ll go with the platforms that the most people are on. There’s no particular fear we have of Windows 8.”

Williams’ statement comes after Valve head Gabe Newell warned that Windows 8 is a ‘catastrophe for everyone in the PC space.’

What’s your take on Windows 8? Is everyone getting upset over nothing, or is there really cause for concern?
