A few rumors have been spreading around as of late, mainly about what Blizzard would cook up at this year’s BlizzCon. As the company is still reeling from the public backlash from its Hearthstone fiesta, it is definitely time to reveal some new games to fan the fire. Supposedly, the news that is going to be on the spotlight this year is Diablo, with a reveal for a remaster of Diablo 2 and Diablo 4.

Diablo 2 is probably the best ARPG ever made

The first credible leak about this title is from a German magazine called Game Star. Based on an advertisement in the latest issue, Blizzard’s upcoming Diablo artbook after BlizzCon would feature about 500 artworks from all Diablo games from 1 to 4.

The artbook is named “The Art of Diablo” and will be shipped the day after BlizzCon 2019. People have been itching for a “Diablo 4” since Blizzard’s disastrous reveal of its mobile spinoff title, Diablo: Immortal, last year. This is not the first time Diablo 4 is mentioned, however. During last year’s BlizzCon, the developers mentioned that “more Diablo titles are in development”. It is said that Diablo 4 has been in production at Blizzard for years, and was recently restarted in 2016.

Diablo 3 is pretty much a failure comparing to its prequels

About Diablo 2 Remastered, apparently, it has been in the works for quite a while. Currently, the trend at Blizzard is to remaster their older classics such as Starcraft, Warcraft 3 and World of Warcraft Classic – and Diablo 2 is not an exception. The reason behind Diablo 2’s slow remaster is the technical issues plagued the game. Even the original Diablo developers, David Brevik said that bringing the game to modern PCs would be extremely taxing.

We will learn more about this in the next few weeks when BlizzCon arrives. It only lasts for a weekend, from November 1 to 2, however, many announcements are going to be made.
