Following close on the heels of reports that Blizzard Entertainment was potentially working on a Diablo II remaster, a fairly credible source has claimed that Blizzcon 2021 will include some sort presentation on the rumored remaster, with the title of “Diablo II Resurrected”.
The leak comes courtesy of @Kaiser499 on Twitter, a gaming focused account that previously leaked Diablo IV and Overwatch 2 before Blizzcon 2019. Given that their leak in 2019 was on the money, it wouldn’t be a surprise if they’re telling the truth about the Diablo II remaster as well. The tweet contains info on other Blizzcon 2021 presentations as well:
World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade Classic— Kaiser499 (@Kaiser499) February 15, 2021
Diablo II Resurrected
Diablo: Immortal Release Date
Mobile Announcement(s)? (Warcraft Pet Battle Game)
New Heroes, Maps, Lore Sneak Peek for Overwatch 2
New Class, Area Reveal for Diablo IV#blizzconline #leaks pic.twitter.com/blDKltJrzl
Between the tweet from Kaiser499 and the Bloomberg report, it’s looking like there really will be a Diablo II remaster. If the rumors that Vicarious Visions — the studio that successfully remastered Crash Bandicoot — are also true, we could be looking at a triumphant return to Khanduras in the not too distant future. We can only hope that, if and when it comes, it won’t end up “Diablo II: Refunded”.
