Well, sort of... It might support IPv6 when/if they get servers deployed
with IPv6 on them.

As it stands currently, it has an IPv6 option on the network menu which
is grayed out.

However, I do applaud Blizzard for taking at least some positive step
forward towards IPv6. Hopefully they will get to the point where I can
actually use this new IPv6 capability in the client soon.
