Diablo 2 remaster hinted at in Blizzard job posting

Diablo 2 remaster hinted at in Blizzard job posting

Back in March, Blizzard revealed Starcraft: Remastered—a modern reimagining of the 1998 classic military RTS, due at some point this summer. In light of this, facets of the Diablo community began speculating about a D2 remaster, which series mastermind David Brevik thereafter stressed may be a more complicated process than people think. 

Nevertheless, a recent Blizzard job listing could suggest a Diablo 2 remake is on the cards. 

The posting, advertising for a "Lead Software Engineer, Engine" role, begins with the following: 

"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."

Later, under the advert's 'Responsibilities' heading, the posting also requires candidates "implement, maintain, and own infrastructure for the Diablo franchise". 

You can check out the posting in full over here in the upper link , and speculate as to what this might mean in the comments below.

Thanks, Blizzplanet.
