Blizzard Entertainment might finally be ready to officially announce (and reveal) the long-rumored Diablo 2 Resurrected in the coming days.
Taking to Twitter earlier today, well-known insider Metro claimed that the highly anticipated remaster of the acclaimed second installment in the franchise will be part of BlizzConline which takes place in a couple of days.
In addition, another known insider Kaiser499 made the same claim on the weekend. Both sources previously leaked Diablo 4 and Overwatch 2 ahead of their official announcements. The chances of finally seeing Diablo 2 Resurrected at BlizzConline are hence definitely high.
For the people asking for Blizzcon leaks.
I've already mentoined everything. Short summary:
– Lower your expectations

Blizzard has been rumored to be remastering Diablo 2 for at least a couple of years now. The remaster has so far been dubbed Diablo 2 Resurrected but which might as well be titled differently in the end.
The unannounced project has been hyped up to be more than just a simple overhaul since most of the code and assets have been made from scratch for a completely modern-day experience. That however remains to be seen since the same was claimed about Warcraft 3 Reforged as well.
Should Diablo 2 Resurrected appear at BlizzConline in the coming days, expect a release around the 2021 holiday season. BlizzConline takes place on February 19 and 20. This will be the first digital-only rendition of the annual event in history because of COVID-19.
