Rumour Has It That Diablo 2 Re-Mastered Is In the Works

You are going to love the fact that Diablo 2 re-mastered is in the works according to a rumour. Since Blizzard has already re-mastered Warcraft and Starcraft, it only makes sense to re-master Diablo 2. This might just be the good news you need to forget about all your worries. The French site Actugamer reported the news which is a reliable source. Besides, the site has previously predicted that Blizzard would announce Diablo 4 and Over Watch 2. Hence, the rumour is just as good.

Actugamer has stated that Blizzard would call the re-master of Diablo 2 as Diablo 2: Resurrected. The name already gives us the chills. It is the perfect name for a game many of us grew up playing. The game is predicted to release by the last quarter of this year during the holidays. Since Activision is releasing the new Call of Duty, Diablo 2 re-mastered seems like a good idea for Blizzard considering just how popular the game still is. It might just be the most successful re-master in history. But, let’s not forget Warcraft 3: Re-Forged and how big of a disaster it was. It was one of the worst releases to date. However, it is believed that Blizzard learned from its mistakes and would not make Diablo 2 re-mastered to be such a mess.

Another part of the rumour that gives many of us gamers hope is that Vicarious Visions will be working on the re-master of Diablo 2. It is one of the oldest studios that have been working with Activision. Vicarious Visions even worked on Guitar Hero. The studio has produced stellar content such as when they made Destiny 2 a huge success. Thus, Vicarious Visions are the right candidate for the re-master of Diablo 2.

You might be wondering that why is Blizzard working on something new. Well, it is believed that the holidays are the perfect time for the behemoth to release Diablo 2 re-mastered. Moreover, Diablo 4 is also close to completion. The game is near completion and gives us that extra itch that Diablo is known for. Since the original Diablo 2 still does a great job at making others addicted, the re-master would have a similar or even stronger effect. The idea of what the Stone of Jordan economy would look like makes us feel a bit overwhelmed but in a good way.

What Do Other Sources say?

There have been other sources that reveal an error causing the entire backup of the assets and the source code of the game is lost. The creators of the game have been working on rebuilding everything. However, as some problems remain, many assets such as art assets have been lost. Thus, making Diablo 2 re-mastered would be extremely difficult for the company since they would have to do everything from scratch. However, it should not be impossible for a studio such as Vicarious Visions or any other studio for that matter to remake the assets without any backup. Therefore, we are simply waiting for Blizzard to give out a word about Diablo 2 re-mastered.
