Blizzard announce Diablo II remaster and Diablo IV

BlizConline coincides with Blizzards’ 30th Anniversary and is spread over 2 days. Who knows what today holds but, Blizzard have made some pretty big announcements on day 1. They have confirmed that they will be remastering Diablo II for PC and consoles. They’ve also provided more details on Diablo IV, which was announced back in 2019 at BlizzCon.

Diablo II was originally released way back in 2000 for Windows and Mac. Now 21 years later comes Diablo II Resurrected, Diablo II remastered with the Lord of Destruction Expansion included. Blizzard have updated the graphics, as well as modernising all 27 minutes of the games cinematic. Diablo II features five acts which supports up to 8 players. A specific release date hasn’t been revealed yet but, pre-ordering on for PC says the game will be released on or before December 2021. As well as coming to PC, the game will be making it’s way to all consoles, the PS4 and PS5, both Xbox One X/S and Series X/S as well as the Nintendo Switch.

As well as announcing Diablo II remastered, Blizzard gave more details about Diablo IV as well as releasing a trailer. We now know that Diablo IV will see the return of the Rogue class. Rogue is one of the original three classes from Diablo I released in 1997. A release date for the new game is currently unknown, other than we won’t see it released this year but, we can hope for a 2022 release, with Diablo II remastered to tide us over.
