Announcement of Diablo II: Resurrected during BlizzConline was met with mixed joy by the fans. While many are looking forward to a reunion with the classic action role-playing game, many still have it unfortunate renovation project Warcraft III: Reforged fresh in memory.
For some reason, Blizzard decided that the Warcraft III new version would completely replace the original. Absolutely all players were forced to upgrade to Reforged, and suddenly a bunch of content from the original version disappeared.
That’s not how it will be with Diablo II, Blizzard promises.
No changes to the original

It was during a round of questions with the development team this weekend that the question of the original game’s future arose. Chief designer Rob Gallerani took the floor and made it clear that Diablo II will be allowed to be at peace.
– No, absolutely not. Everything you have in Diablo II now remains in Diablo II. This is a separate product and a separate game. You can play both at the same time if you wish.
As the two game versions have nothing to do with each other, Gallerani further explained that players can not transfer characters from the original game to the new version. Diablo II: Resurrected, however, receives official support for modifications, so those who want can still introduce their own elements to the experience.
Diablo II: Resurrected will hit PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X / S sometime in 2021.
