The remake of Diablo 2 has been haunted by the rumor mill for a long time. In the current annual report, Activision Blizzard itself could have indicated that the new edition will be published this year.
In the past, rumors made the rounds that a remake of the classic action role-playing game Diablo 2 was being worked on behind the scenes.
At the end of the week, Activision Blizzard’s annual report for the past quarter, in which the company discussed about upcoming projects, among other things, provides fresh speculation in this direction. Activision Blizzard did not mention specific names, but pointed out that players can look forward to at least one “remastered content” this year. It is speculated that it could include a new edition of Diablo 2 Remake.
“Across our three biggest franchises (Call of Duty, World of Warcraft, and Candy Crush), we have great momentum. And we have a few other things up our sleeve in terms of remastered content that we’ll unveil in due course, which should provide further opportunity for us this year,” it concludes.
At the end of last month, we received the message that the New York development studio Vicarious Visions is joining Blizzard Entertainment and will in the future act as the supported studio for the World of Warcraft and Diablo creators.
After the Diablo 2 remake was initially under development by the same team that produced negative headlines with Warcraft III: Reforged, Activision Blizzard is said to have decided to pull the project off, and this with the Diablo 4 team and even to accommodate Vicarious Visions. However, this information has not yet been officially confirmed.
