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 .

Apparently you can play a modern version of Diablo 2 using Grim Dawn and this mod.

I've been doing this hard for the past week.
How is it?
It's actually quite impressive. I just played Diablo 2 LOD a couple of weeks ago and it plays like it and really reminds me of the original. They ripped out the voice overs, some graphics, the quests and story line right out of the old D2LOD game and used it.

I am not actually sure how this mod is okay with Blizzard. Maybe blizzard don't know about it yet. I could see if they didn't include the assets like the voices, quests and the graphics like the character graphics to choose your class, or maybe made a program that ripped the assets out of your Diablo2LOD files on a user's HDD, but with those included in the mod I'd expect this to get a DMCA take down letter sooner or later. So grab it while you can.
