Apparently, the much discussed Diablo 2 Remastered would be in the works at Vicarious Visions, the Activision branch author of Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy. This news comes from the French newspaper Actu Gaming, who in the past had already guessed the announcements of Diablo 4, Shadowlands and Overwatch 2 in view of the Blizzcon 2019. Despite this, we still invite you to consider everything a simple rumor until an official presentation.
Although fans of the series will surely be happy with this news, it comes with no small surprise. If you remember, in fact, the creators Max Schaefer, Erich Schaefer and David Brevik had revealed at the ExileCon 2019 of having lost the entire source code of Diablo 2, along with game files and assets. The same had stated that making a remastered version of the game would have been very complicated, and much material should have been recreated from scratch. It is therefore difficult to think that this is truly in development, yet the rumors are there. We just have to wait future announcements to find out the truth of the facts.
Meanwhile, we remind you that news may soon arrive television adaptations of Diablo and Overwatch, already discussed a few months ago.
