Diablo II Remastered Rumors Resurface

A post on ACTUGAMING reports, in the site's native French, on plans for a remastered version of Diablo II (thanks Wccftech). A rumor about a Diablo II remake emerged last year, and this report claims to have learned of this from sources close to Blizzard. Here is a machine translation to part of their report:
Among the many projects to come, we would therefore have a remastered edition of the second episode of the hack'n'slash series which would take the name of Diablo 2 Resurrected . The release is scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2020 , although the date may be slightly delayed due to the current situation.

It is the desire to introduce the series to the approach of Diablo 4 that would have prompted the Californian company to offer a remastered edition. According to our sources, it is the Vicarious Visions studio that would support Blizzard for this Diablo 2 Resurrected , project on which he would work since the release of the Crash Bandicoot trilogy . Remember that Vicarious also worked on the port of Destiny 2 .

Unfortunately, this won't be a remaster so much as a from scratch rewrite. From what I understand all the source code and original assets were lost permanently. So the game is going to definitely be different than the original and to me that would probably make it something I'll pass on. I am sure Blizzard will do something stupid like with D3 and D4 and tie it to be always online or some other kind of BS. For me, I would rather they never attempt it at all then make it like that.
