According to a report by Bloomberg's industry property Jason Schreier, Billzard, or to be more precise: the studio Vicarious Visions recently bought by Activision, is working on a remake of Diablo 2. The 200-man developer studio had previously worked on series such as Tony Hawk and Crash Bandicoot. According to Bloomberg, the information about the Diablo 2 remake comes from anonymous sources who know Blizzard's plans.


It has been a rumor for a long time that a remake of Diablo 4 is to be released in addition to Diablo 2. Blizzard itself has not officially commented on this, but industry expert Jason Schreier now suggests that a corresponding project may be in progress.

Diablo 2 remake: is it actually coming?

The Diablo franchise could play a strong role in the games market in the years to come. Diablo Immortal is more or less on the home stretch and Diablo 4 is also in the works. Now it seems as if the remake of Diablo 2 is one of those projects that Blizzard wants to actively serve. According to a report by Jason Schreier for Bloomberg, the Californian game company is working on a remake of what is probably the most popular title from the Diablo series: Diablo 2.

The alleged name of the game is said to be Diablo 2: Resurrected and was originally developed by Blizzard's core team, which was responsible for Warcraft 2020: Reforged, which was released in 3. the rather negative reviews however, led to Blizzard handing the project over to the team responsible for Diablo 4.

Now, according to Schreier Vicarious Visions - the makers of the current Crash Bandicoot and the remake of Tony Hawk - should at least help in the development of the remake of Diablo 2. Activision recently bought the studio into the company.

Blizzard has not yet confirmed the report on the Diablo 2 remake. But: In a statement to Bloomberg stated that Vicarious Visions “has been working with Blizzard for some time”. What is the end of the rumor about a revised or reissued version of the classic remains to be seen. The plans could well be realistic, as fans have long wanted a remake of the hack-and-slay title from 2000. It is completely uncertain when the time for the release of a remake for Diablo 2 should the rumors be true. There were eleven years between Diablo 2: Lord of Destruction and Diablo 3; only on the BlizzCon 2019 had Blizzard the successor Diablo 4 announced.

By the way: There were already rumors of a remake for Diablo 2, according to which the game will be released in 2020 should. These have obviously proven to be incorrect - unless the corona pandemic has secretly caused a postponement.
