Because Blizzard can no longer make enjoyable new games they turn to old ones so we might see The Diablo 2 Remaster soon according to a rumor.
The ARPG genre is hard to do right
Diablo 2 is one of those games that are still actively played today. That’s not even a joke, as this cult classic has one of the best ARPG formulas in the industry. Do Path of Exile, Grim Dawn, and some other newer ARPGs innovate or improve the formula? Yes, in some ways they do, in others they don’t. It’s all hard to explain, but making loot drops satisfying, the combat interesting, and the enemies unique and tough is really hard, even for developers today.
The rumor comes from an accurate source
That’s why they’ve been so silent about Diablo 4, which is going to have a lot of MMO elements for some reason. So, why would you try to innovate in a genre that’s hard to get right when you can remaster one of the best ARPGs of all time? The Diablo 2 Remaster rumor is coming from Acutgaming, a French website that leaked Diablo 4, Overwatch 2, and Shadowlands rumors accurately. I’m guessing that this rumor is true as well, maybe the date isn’t super accurate but a Diablo 2 Remaster happening is a high probability.
Blizzard’s previous attempt to remaster a beloved classic
But why would that scare me? Remember Warcraft 3: Reforged and all the bullshit that came with it? Remember how it killed the original game’s multiplayer aspect and removed a ton of features? All while making everyone’s original game update to the new client? See, I don’t trust them after that. A bunch of lies, manipulation, and deception. That’s what Warcraft 3: Reforged ended up being. Given that, do you think that they’ll do better with the Diablo 2 Remaster?
Now if you are looking for a quality ARPG, I suggest two titles. Grim Dawn, and Diablo 3 with its expansion, both of which are available on HRK Game. Grim Dawn is more of what Diablo 3 should have been, but Diablo 3 is a much more polished and pretty experience.
