Diablo2 Remaster?
« on: October 21, 2019, 07:00:34 PM »
So everyone is excited to play with each other, talk with each other and meet up for D2.

No one hyped at all for a possible D4.
Diablo3 is in a coma for all intents and purposes.
Negative hype for "do you not have phones"

Depending IF the remaster is actually a thing, it will be interesting roughly when its out. Warcraft 3 is 12 months later.  Even the "do you not have phones" doesn't have a release date.  Will be interesting to see what comes across as is, what gets quality of life changes etc.  Will it just be a graphics tweak?

For me: I'm still going back to D2 at some point, haven't finished yet, just having fun with some other things first

A remaster would be nice with proper widescreen an decent resolution.

I don't see it happening though...

D4 might be interesting, I am enjoying D3 still though.

I'd love to have a D2 remastered, if they can figure out a way to make it easy for solo players to stash/mule a ton of items.

Plenty of people are hyped for D4, and I'm still having fun in D3 when the new seasons kick off.

I would have interest in both. Not as fun as Borderlands though.  :-P

Honestly I have to take a wait and see.  BizzArdvision is a pretty crap company right now.

Very much so, I hope they get a few questions about Hong Kong at Blizzcon

So have people heard the rumours coming out that this is happening, might be out end of year and not by the Classic games team at Blizzard?'

Their previous track record was Starcraft remastered (good) and Warcraft 3 which was burning bag of dog poo.

Activision on their earnings call talked about 2 projects from old ip coming up,so its possible ..

You and I are hearing similar things Timmeh!

Even I have picked up on the scuttlebutt that this might be happening sooner rather than later.  Of course the last time I got my hopes up for some Diablo news we Immortal poured all over us.  Tough to believe that a year and a half has pass since the infamous "Do you not have phones?!"

Hopefully they learned from their WoW classic mishap.

D2:LoD with better graphics, a bit faster game play, would be fun I think.

I've only been back in the Diablo world since February, after what a 10 year hiatus or something like that? So, I'm still learning and enjoying D3. I will pick up DI if it comes out (maybe alpha/beta this summer?). But I think I may wear thin on D3 in a few more seasons, so thoughts have turned back to trying out D2 again. If remastered becomes a thing, I may wait for that. I'm glad to be back in PC gaming, so we'll see how things turn out.
