Diablo 2: Resurrected Officially Announced, Rogue Confirmed for Diablo 4

Diablo 2 is getting the remake treatment in Diablo 2: Resurrected, and it's about time.

After years of fans holding out hope for Blizzard to return to Diablo 2 in one form or another, the developer has finally decided to give the beloved ARPG the attention it deserves.

Announced yesterday during BlizzCon, the legendary title will be returning as Diablo 2: Resurrected, a remake including the base game and its Lord of Destruction expansion.

Diablo 2: Resurrected will bring more than just shiny new graphics to this classic title. The game will also feature cross-platform progression so players can hop on their characters between PC and console, and, of course, controller support comes in tow with that good news.

Blizzard have also confirmed there will be a shared stash function, and rumor is the remake will even have automatic gold pickup as a base feature to the game. These are huge quality of life improvements over the original that certainly no one could complain about if true.

This all sounds like great news and the new visuals do suit the style of the original version of the game, but that’s not all the attention the Diablo series received yesterday.


Diablo 4
 has also been confirmed to include a Rogue class, a predictable but warmly welcomed addition to the upcoming game’s roster. So far Druid, Barbarian, Sorceress, and now Rogue have been confirmed.

Blizzard weren’t keen to let us know too much more during yesterday’s Diablo 4, but they did show how the game’s world shifts as you push through and clean out the evil plaguing the many would-be havens of Sanctuary.

After the state in which Warcraft 3: Reforged was released and in some respects continues to be in, it’s understandable to be pensive about the state of Diablo 2: Resurrected; and reservations over Diablo 4 after Diablo 3 are also fairly well-deserved. Time will tell if these titles live up to the old Blizzard name.

You can sign up for the Diablo 2: Resurrected alpha on the official site, provided you’re logged in, but the release date for Diablo 4 is still yet to be announced.
