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 own Grim Dawn (and like it a lot) but I don't own the expansions. They cost $35, which is quite a bit...
Yeah I bought the expansions separately during sales last year so I paid around $28 for both. I still haven't even gotten to either as I have never finished the main GD game but now I feel glad I got them ;). I was replaying D2LOD but the upscaling of 800x600 to my 1600p display was terrible looking so I might just try going farther with this mod.

Still I'd just grab the mod for now (especially if you liked D2) even if I couldn't play it at the moment due to what I mentioned earlier. It's not a perfect D2LOD clone mod, but it really does kind of feel like a D2 remaster. I played till I got past Andariel before I stopped last night. And overall the only thing strange was it was a bit too dark especially in the caves. They did a good job on the skill trees and tried to fit them to GD's system so some skills I noticed that in D2 had multiple prerequisites had only 1, but they were all present (for Amazon class anyway). Bow skills don't require arrows to be picked up for ammo. There is no durability in the weapons, so thrown weapons like Javelins are infinite. The health system works as GD's, so you recover health after fights.
