French news outlet ActuGaming is reporting that the game, which it thinks to be called Diablo 2 Reanimated, will introduce in Q42020 The editor of ActuGaming has previously correctly anticipated announcements for Overwatch 2, Diablo 4 and WoW: Shadowlands.
The post points out “sources close to the studio,” and suggests that Vicarious Visions is supporting Blizzard on the job. Vicarious Visions has been running for decades now, but the studio most recently worked on the Crash Bandicoot revival, developing the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy and Crash Group Racing: Nitro-Fueled. It’s not understood when this possible remaster will be revealed, but it’s thought that it must make headings prior to its scheduled launch date at the end of the year, if the rumours turn out to be true.
Warcraft III: Reforged launched in February of this year, a video game we called ” an uninspiring refresh of a truly terrific game.” Hopefully, this rumoured Diablo II remaster will do its precursor more justice.
