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 .

I just uninstalled WC3 Reforged today, lol.

This coming from one of the biggest WC3 fans back in it's original days. I suppose nostalgia does sell and that's probably why I bought WC3 Reforged. I knew I wasn't going to get back into at the same level and depth I put in to the original. I just was hoping to revisit the charm that made the original so amazing for me.

I don't think it should have been so difficult to pull off but Blizz f**ked it up bad. It just felt whack and didn't have anything that made the original so amazing. Then again, that could just be due to the times have changed. When WC3 came out, it was defining for it's time. The hero based RTS was mastered with WC3. Since then we've had copy cats and the genre saturated.

I think the same will go with Diablo 2. With so much that has come out since, Diablo 2 remastered just might feel old anyway and not have that nostalgic 2000 feeling.
