Blizzard may be planning a remaster of Diablo ll

Redaction - May, 11th 2020

Activision Blizzard, which has been associated for a long time, is probably preparing for a remaster of the well-known and legendary game Diablo 2. After games like Crash Bandicoot, Spyro the Dragon or Warcraft 3, we could see the rebirth of this exceptional RPG title on our monitors this year.

Information about a possible remaster was revealed by the editor of the French website Actugaming, who in the past successfully predicted the announcement of Diablo 4, World of Warcraft: Shadowlands and Overwatch 2 games on BlizzCon 2019. However, its announcement must be taken with caution for two main reasons.

The first is the fact that the design boss of the original Diablo ll, David Brevik, said that most of the source code for the game was not preserved due to non-backup. This would logically result in the process of re-writing the code, which can be quite challenging, especially in reworked games.

The second reason why we don't have to wait for the games at all is the fact that the last and long-awaited remaster of Warcraft 3: Reforged turned out to be catastrophic. Reforged also achieved the lowest rating on Metacritic and is not tuned even months after its release.
