Diablo 2 Resurrected

In the past few months there have been countless rumors and speculations about a remastered version of the action role-playing game Diablo 2. From all appearances, however, there will soon be clarity in this regard: As can be read on the "Kaiser499" Twitter account, the official announcement is planned for BlizzCon 2021, which will take place from February 19th to 20th as an online event.

The tweet contains a list of all the major announcements and presentations that the leak says you can expect this weekend. This includes the unveiling of Diablo 2 (buy now € 34.95): Resurrected - probably the official name of the remastered version. Unfortunately, further details in this regard cannot be found in the tweet. However, "Kaiser499" was correct several times in the past with its leaks and prognoses. Among other things, the Twitter account had correctly predicted the announcements of the action role-playing game Diablo 4 and multiplayer shooter Overwatch 2 shortly before BlizzCon 2019. So there might well be some truth to the whole thing.

In addition, the publisher Activision Blizzard recently announced that the remastered version of a big game will definitely come out later this year. Given the importance of the Diablo brand, it would therefore not be surprising if the aforementioned Diablo 2: Resurrected were to be found behind it. This weekend at the latest we should be a little smarter in this regard.

Diablo 2 Resurrected Rumored For BlizzConline

Blizzard Entertainment might finally be ready to officially announce (and reveal) the long-rumored Diablo 2 Resurrected in the coming days.

Taking to Twitter earlier today, well-known insider Metro claimed that the highly anticipated remaster of the acclaimed second installment in the franchise will be part of BlizzConline which takes place in a couple of days.

In addition, another known insider Kaiser499 made the same claim on the weekend. Both sources previously leaked Diablo 4 and Overwatch 2 ahead of their official announcements. The chances of finally seeing Diablo 2 Resurrected at BlizzConline are hence definitely high.

Blizzard has been rumored to be remastering Diablo 2 for at least a couple of years now. The remaster has so far been dubbed Diablo 2 Resurrected but which might as well be titled differently in the end.

The unannounced project has been hyped up to be more than just a simple overhaul since most of the code and assets have been made from scratch for a completely modern-day experience. That however remains to be seen since the same was claimed about Warcraft 3 Reforged as well.

Should Diablo 2 Resurrected appear at BlizzConline in the coming days, expect a release around the 2021 holiday season. BlizzConline takes place on February 19 and 20. This will be the first digital-only rendition of the annual event in history because of COVID-19.
