Rumour: Diablo II and WarCraft III might be getting the remaster treatment

Even though I loved Diablo III, especially after the Reaper of Souls expansion, there is always this burning need to go back to Diablo II, which is arguably the best Diablo game ever created. That’s why I am already extremely hyped up about the possibility of a Diablo II remaster, as well as a remaster of WarCraft III.

Earlier this year developer Blizzard Entertainment officially announced StarCraft Remastered after rumours of remastered Blizzard titles floating around. Now, there is quite a substantial rumour making the rounds that both Diablo II and WarCraft III will get the remaster treatment. The rumour originates from career page on Blizzard.com in the job listings for a Senior Software Engineer and a UI/UX Visual Designer.

The Senior Software Engineer’s job listing clearly states:

“Compelling stories. Intense multiplayer. Endless replayability. Qualities that made StarCraft, Warcraft III, and Diablo II the titans of their day. Evolving operating systems, hardware, and online services have made them more difficult to be experienced by their loyal followers or reaching a new generation. We’re restoring them to glory, and we need your engineering talents, your passion, and your ability to get tough jobs done.” - Source

Further, the UI/UX Visual Designer job listing doesn’t specifically mention Diablo II and WarCraft III, but instead indicates work on the franchises, stating that:

“Do you understand that experiences outside gameplay are as integral as those within? Would you like to be part of blurring the lines of where the game ends? Can you crawl inside players’ heads – without lobotomizing them – and emerge with clear direction?

Do you believe aesthetics are as important as flow? Classic Games is looking for a renaissance designer to harmonize that which was, with that which will be. Warcraft, StarCraft, and Diablo await your machinations. If you have the desire to rise to that challenge, we’d love to hear from you.” - Source

The above listings are a compelling reason to believe that more remasters are coming in the future. At the time of writing, Blizzard has not announced either a WarCraft III or Diablo II remaster, so please remember to take this rumour with a grain of salt until such time as an announcement is made.

What do you think about the possibility of WarCraft III or Diablo II remasters and would you play them? Let us know in the comment section below.
