Blizzard job posting strongly hints at Diablo 2 remaster

Blizzard job posting strongly hints at Diablo 2 remaster

A new job posting on Blizzard’s website could indicate that a Diablo 2 remaster is indeed in the works. Blizzard has recently remastered StarCraft and had stated that StarCraft was their focus of attention for the time being, However, this new job posting specifically mentions Diablo 2.

The “Responsibilities” section includes a note that says, “Implement, maintain, and own infrastructure for the Diablo franchise” which could indicate that there is now movement on a Diablo 2 remaster. No other game is mentioned in the requirements part of the job posting.

Back in April, ex-Blizzard developer and Diablo 2 creator David Brevik told PC Invasion that a remaster of the what is considered the best Diablo game would be “no small feat”. Perhaps Blizzard is now up for the challenge having completed the StarCraft remaster which would be superb news for fans of the series.

Thanks Diabloii.Net.

        1. Look for the Diablo.exe file in file manager (Inside the folder where you installed it)
        2. Right click on Diablo.exe and go to Properties
        3. At the top of the Properties window click the “Compatability” tab
        4. In this section, check the box that says “Run this program in compatibility mode”. When the drop-down appears, select “Windows 7”.
        5. In the “Setting” section below, check the box that says “Run in 256 colors”.
        6. Click “Apply”.

            Try doing as above, but set the compatibility mode to Win98. My mistake there 🙂
