Personally I'm pretty much indifferent as to whether this happens or not but I know the news will please those who have their nostalgia goggles welded on permanenty.
Natural selection saw to it that heroes who at a crucial moment tended to ask themselves questions like 'What is my purpose in life?' very quickly lacked both.

Not a hint. They are reading way too much into it.

Rumors based on a job description. We had them last year too.

Keep in mind that the last time there were mystery jobs up it ended up in Overwatch when everyone expected an MMO. I really wouldn't make too many assumptions, and this certainly seems like a big one.

I said it: Blizz is not going to do it because there's a guy who's doing it for free:

Let's not forget about Brevik saying a remade D2 would be very difficult.
It's a new day. Make sure to take advantage of that.

As much as Diablo III was well received, Diablo II is often considered one of the best games ever made, especially if you just limit your awards to the dungeon crawling genre.


Of course, even if you're just solely looking at the aspect of the depth in character customization.

PCGamer points out that there was even a further suggestion of a new HD version of Diablo II, as in the "responsibilities" section of that same job posting, it suggests that their position will require them to "implement, maintain [...] infrastructure for the Diablo franchise.


Well it seems to be D2R or D4 at this point, especially if the description explicitly mentioned "Diablo". Can't be D3 expansion since they're done. Can't be D3 Necro because it's already on the way. So it's pointing towards D2 Remaster or Diablo 4, though the former seems more likely at this dev stage.

This is great news, thanks for sharing TC.

I knew me posting this would have the unfortunate side effect of making Ryan a happy...whatever it is. What I didn't anticpate was how dirty it would make me feel, I'd take a shower in bleach if it didn't have the slight drawback of being lethal.
