D2:R always aimed to be D2:HD Edition with a few UI QoL updates but no gameplay changes. In large part because most monitors these days aren't 800x600 (or the original 640x480). What SC:R successfully did and WC3:R failed horribly at.
If you want a more "modern" experience there's a lot of other good games out there and D4 is comming at some point in the future.
Yes, nowadays monitors are e.g. 3440x1440p... /*sigh
According to the latest Steam HW survey, around 87% use a 16:9 display with 1920x1080 being the most common by far at 68.42%.
3440x1440 sits at a wonderful 1.02%, which is an amount few developers would redesign the game from scratch for if the resolution causes gameplay issues.
