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 .

"It's not 'sort of' changed, it has completely changed," Brevik contested, noting that the only original Blizzard developers who remain are senior art director Samwise Didier and senior vice president Allen Adham, who Brevik still chats with regularly.

Thanks, but no thanks David. No one wants a turn based Diablo right now (and I am like Mr. Turn Based...) or another Hellgate London. We get it, Diablo was your high school football and you were the homecoming king, but the time has come to let it go. Make a good game on your own or pipe down.

There is a turn-based 'Diablo' clone out right now. It looked like all paper-craft on a 3/4 isometric view with a 'card item' mechanic, and I played through the demo, and when I finished, first thing I thought was '... That was Diablo. wat.'

It's called 'Book of Demons', and its listed as a 'Diablo Tribute'. It was a very odd mental sensation when that realization popped. It was fun, though, and as simple as it looks, it looks good.
