why cant classic have graphics like rdr2?

Classic Discussion
why? its 2018, upgrade the graphics already
OK John Oliver
Enjoy 5 FPS in AV.
Because Blizzard doesn't want to pay to use RAGE (Rockstar Advanced Game Engine).

Because making WOW: Classic look better than WOW: Retail would have repercussions.

Get lost, troll.
activision blizzard has a way bigger revenue than take two interactive. there is litteraly NO EXCUSE for the sheer laziness of not upgrating the graphics to a 2018 triple-A standard
if it looked anything like the cinematics i would be down to it

Because what part of shiny new graphics says "Authentic Vanilla Experience"?

Those graphics will age horrible; have you ever played the old "realistic" FPS games of the late 90's / early 2000's?

Any how, consider Vanilla graphics are not as bad as you make them out to be..

They were considered "Better" than WoW back when WoW came out regarding graphics............

BUT

WoW aged well; they did not. As you can see from this video Vanilla graphics aged awesome by typical standards.

Now, going back to that same era there are a few games that aged well too, one that specifically aged well were the Unreal Tournament 2003 / 2004 games; fantastic graphics for their era, IMO best in video game history for the era vs their contemporaries.. Now days the only thing that even comes close to that level is Doom 2016 and Quake Champions.

Sea of Thieves if you want "WoW" like graphics is also very good, and has bar-none the best water in any video game at any point in the total history of the world.

With that said, BFA's graphics are "new and shiny" if you only ever played WoW and lost touch with reality, but overall they are garbage by modern standards and FAR behind what Vanilla was in 2004 graphically (by comparison).

Back to Classic WoW; the graphics are just fine. If you're really turned off by graphics of that era then play a different game.
Cuz that’s a silly waste of resources if one is trying to recapture the look and feel of a legacy game.
