Diablo 2 Remake is reportedly in development, and Vicarious Visions is the studio in charge of the game.
Diablo 2 Remake is in the development process
Yesterday, Activision announced the merger of Vicarious Visions with Blizzard. And a couple of hours ago, Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier claimed that the studio is working with Blizzard on Diablo 2 Remake.
According to Schreier, Blizzard’s Team 1 was originally working on Diablo 2 Remake. However, Activision disbanded the team last year and gave it to the Diablo 4 team. As such, Blizzard’s Team 3 is now overseeing and working with Vicarious Visions on this project.
From what we know so far, Blizzard has been working on Diablo 2 Remake for quite some time. In 2017, a job listing hinted that this classic Hack and slash action RPG would get a remaster/remake. After all, Blizzard was working to restore Warcraft III and StarCraft. And, as we all know, we have already received remasters of both StarCraft and Warcraft 3.
Activision and Blizzard have yet to officially reveal Diablo II Remake / Remaster. Still, and from what we’ve been hearing all these years, Diablo 2 Remake seems to be real. So, let’s at least hope that this project is better than Warcraft 3 Reforged.
