It looks like Blizzard Entertainment is getting a whole lot beefier, as a recent report has surfaced stating that Vicarious Visions (Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2) has been absored by the company, and what’s more, it’s working on a Diablo 2 Remake!
This recent report comes from Bloomberg, which states that until last year, the Diablo 2 Remake was set to be developed by Blizzard’s Team 1, which is part of Blizzard’s Irvine, California campus. Team 1’s latest remake was Warcraft 3: Reforged, which was met with controversy more than anything else when it was released.
To cut the story short: Blizzard wanted to avoid the same mistake and tasked the team behind Diablo 4 in charge, with Vicarious Visions working on it too. The report states that the Diablo 2 Remake was also known as “Diablo II: Resurrected.”
When asked for a comment, Blizzard refrained from commenting on Vicarious Visions’ current projects, though confirmed that the studio ‘”has been working with Blizzard for some time.”
