Diablo 2: Resurrected Reportedly Releasing Later This Year

If a report from a French site is to be believed, fans will finally get their hands on the long-awaited Diablo 2 remaster this year.

Diablo 2 is one of the most famous action RPGs of all time. First released by Blizzard in 2000, fans have clamored for a remaster for years. Now, a new report says that the long-awaited Diablo 2 remaster is on the horizon, slated for release later this year.

The news comes from multiple outlets, all of which source French site ActuGaming. According to the report, the game is titled Diablo 2: Resurrected and has a fourth-quarter 2020 release date. Vicarious Visions is allegedly working on the remaster. 

As of this writing, there is no word on when the supposed remaster will be officially revealed by Blizzard. It’s possible, though, considering the reported release window, that we’ll hear something about Diablo 2: Resurrected during Phase 1 of The Summer Game Fest

Blizzard is listed as a participant alongside publishers and developers like Bungie, Bethesda, Private Division, Microsoft, and CD Projekt Red. Adding further speculation-fuel to the fire, a blog post from early April by Saralyn Smith, executive producer of Blizzcon, said: “it’s too early to know whether BlizzCon 2020 will be feasible.”

In simpler times, we’d assume the game would be announced during BlizzCon 2020, but we don’t have that luxury this year. 

Regardless of when it’s officially revealed, the Diablo 2 remaster has been the source of fan speculation for years. Job roles have cropped up regarding the game and other Blizzard properties, such as the Warcraft 3 remaster, the latter of which turned out to be the maligned Warcraft 3: Reforged

Here’s to hoping this one’s received better.
