It'll be a long time before Diablo 4 becomes a reality, so fans have to satiate their hunger with older titles. While there is nothing inherently wrong with Diablo 3, it requires an active connection at all times, much to the dismay of those who want to play offline. That leaves us with Diablo 2. The game has high replayability value even twenty years after its release. Now, some rumors from a French website indicate that the game is all set to receive a much-needed makeover.

Actugaming claims that it received a tip from a 'reliable source,' which states that a Diablo 2 Remaster is in the works and slated to drop later this year. All the heavy lifting, however, will be done by Vicarious Visions of the Crash Bandicoot fame. The game is expected to drop sometime in Q4 2020, and will likely be unveiled at Blizzcon later in the year.

While Actugaming has been fairly spot-on with its previous Blizzard-centric leaks, it's best if we take this one with a grain of salt. Last year, the development team behind Diablo 2 said that the original assets of the game were 'lost' and that a remake would involve redesigning it from scratch. Diablo 2 is not a small game by any means, and redeveloping it from the ground up is an arduous task. One can only hope that Vicarious Visions does a better job than Warcraft 3 Reforged.
