The Official Announcement of a Diablo 2 Remake from Blizzard

Against all the odds, Blizzard has finally announced that Diablo 2: Resurrected is coming and is here khổng lồ stay.

With the failure of Blizzards’ Warcraft 3 remaster in many fans eyes, Blizzard has a lot to lớn prove in this remaster of such a popular game that is likely to receive a huge backlash from the community if it falls flat.

After all, the last thing we want is khổng lồ be teased with the idea of an amazing remaster, only lớn get a dulled down limp corpse of a remaster that takes one step forward and two steps baông xã. Luckily, from what we’ve sầu seen so far Diablo 2: Resurrected appears set khổng lồ live up khổng lồ our expectations with an amazing new graphics engine that runs atop of the original game itself & promises to leave sầu much of the original Diablo 2 experience intact.

Previous Diablo 2 developers have sầu been outspoken when it comes khổng lồ the idea of a remake, in no small part due khổng lồ the fact that during Diablo 2’s original development the main backup of the project became corrupted, which allegedly meant that the game had lớn be recreated from code on individual developers computers causing a ton of important files to lớn be lost in the process. Many said at the time that this meant a Diablo 2 remaster could likely “not be the same game” due to much of the code needing lớn redone from scratch after being hacked together for the original game launch.


Did we mention Diablo 2 ended up being one of the best games of all friggin’ time? Hats off và a moment of silence please for David Brevik & the rest of the original Diablo 2 development team for all of the pain they went through lớn bring us this masterpiece. Whether or not these files can be recovered or recreated in a way that doesn’t lose touch with the original is open for debate, though it’s clear at the very least in some aspects it could be a different game altogether at least from a code perspective.

With that out the way, let’s move on to lớn some positive sầu karma khổng lồ hope that the Diablo gods are hard at work on an amazing remaster!

The Good News: Steady Demand from Fans for Diablo 2 Remaster & Amazing Fan Made Mods

Despite its age, interest in Diablo 2 has seemingly defied the test of time completely, with a dedicated fanbase of players & enthusiasts still trawling the halls of hell like it’s 2000 over twenty years later. Luckily for those of us who would murder a hoard of demons just be able khổng lồ play a Diablo 2 remaster today, there are amazing tín đồ made mods available including Project Diablo 2 which have sầu already done such an amazing job of enhancing the original Diablo 2 experience that it puts Blizzard to shame for taking so long. If you are more interested in an official remaster, I personally admit lớn having more fun playing a rerun of Diablo 2 than I did playing Diablo 3 in its entirety, which is no small feat, và even more fun playing the recently released tín đồ made remaster Project Diablo 2.

Sure, one could put some of it down to raw nostalgia, but there is something more – the Diablo 2 had a certain polish and immersion that is quite hard to put one’s finger on even after careful inspection. This is what drives the hopes from fans for a Diablo 2 remake that will live sầu up to lớn the hype & give sầu fans & new players alike a taste of hell’s old glory, hopefully as a teaser just before we get our hands on Diablo 4 (và that is assuming Diablo 4 is any good in the end).

Of course, this is all just wishful thinking at the kết thúc of the day – but it sure as hell is better than wishing Diablo 3 would turn inkhổng lồ the gem that it deserved khổng lồ be. Despite being a good game, it lacked the greatness of its predecessors in a way that could only leave true die-hard fans wanting more.

Our own research using Google Ads từ khóa data suggests that there are between 100 000 – 1 000 000 people searching for Diablo 2 on Google every single month. At the very least, this should show that Blizzard would have a huge monetary incentive tapping into an amazing fanbase lượt thích ours. Knowing the path Blizzard has taken since their Activision takeover, you can be sure executives are eyeing out these numbers eagerly.

Diablo 4: Will We Get Diablo 4 Before Diablo 2 Remastered?

If there’s one thing that will be sure khổng lồ satisfy the cravings of the Diablo community enough to put off the idea of a Diablo 2 remaster, it’s definitely the hotly anticipated Diablo 4.

After the disappointment of Diablo 3 for me personally, it took me some time to lớn warm up the idea of Diablo 4. It was only after watching the trailer one day without watching the intro (so I had no idea that it was Diablo at all) that is really caught my attention.

Such was the trauma of a failed Diablo 3 launch and a game that clearly did not lift up to lớn it’s predecessors, though in all honestly that was always going to lớn be a herculean task. The above sầu said, I highly recommkết thúc skipping the intro on the video clip below for your objective opinion if you too have been emotionally scarred by Diablo 3.


Diablo 2 is especially relevant here as Diablo 4 is being hyped precisely for its return khổng lồ the dark atmosphere so prevalent in Diablo 1 và Diablo 2 that was seemingly lost in the color orgy that ended up being Diablo 3.

That said though, with the disappointing hype versus reality we are used to from Blizzard lately, we can we really trust that they are taking this seriously? Our only solace lies in the fact that Activison-Blizzard company executives, after canceling Diablo 3’s additional planned expansions, were cited as saying openly that Diablo 3 had been a failure despite perceived commercial & critical success.

This is a statement that, unfortunately, I tend to agree with. Being the greedy corporate machine that Activision-Blizzard has turned into, we can only hope that the loss of loyalty from fans over Diablo 3 was really enough for executives khổng lồ take notice and ensure that Diablo 4 lives up to lớn all our greademo expectations and more.

Where to lớn Next?

If you have sầu made it this far và you are still here and chewing at the bit for something lớn sink your teeth inkhổng lồ there is, fortunately, there is one last solution (asides from whipping out your phone and trying out the new Diablo Immortal game on the toilet).

In the wait for a Diablo 2: Resurrected to lớn be launched & Diablo 4, there is no shame in whipping out your old CRT (if you want to take it that far) and reliving the glory of Diablo 2 by simply playing the original all over again or, ideally with the addition of the recent Project Diablo 2 mod which adds some amazing new features and enhancements already. s farming items, but for a true adventurer, this should be no excuse not khổng lồ relive sầu hells glory. Best yet – Project Diablo 2 have their own dedicated servers that are completely bot free!

You may even be surprised at how well the original itself has stood up khổng lồ the thử nghiệm of time. Unfortunately, the official Blizzard online community is somewhat dominated by an army of bot
