Diablo 2 Remaster Unlikely - Code and Assets Were Lost According to Creators Diablo 2 Remaster Unlikely - Code and Assets Were Lost According to Creators While we all expected the Diablo 2 remaster to be announced at this year's BlizzCon and some rumors even pointed to it, it seems we may not ever get the updated version of the game. According to Erich and Max Schaefer, two of the original creators of both Diablo 1 and 2, the remaster is very unlikely, as a little while before launch of D2, the entire backup of the source code and assets was lost.

Q3 Earnings: Classic Drives Biggest Quarterly Increase to Subscription Plans in History Q3 Earnings: Classic Drives Biggest Quarterly Increase to Subscription Plans in History It's that time of year again when we find out how it's going on the financial side of things for Activision Blizzard, with the thord quarter of 2019 bringing better than expected results. WoW Classic is the biggest news, as it has produced the largest increase in quarterly subscription plans in WoW history! While that may sound like some PR talk to boost numbers, we should take into consideration this includes every expansion launch ever, meaning the spike from regular BfA to Classic's release has exceeded even the biggest jumps from a bad or no-content at the end expansion (like WoD) to a popular one (like Legion), which is pretty impressive.

The big news is that the first four main panels after the opening ceremonies will be free for everyone, meaning those are going to be some VERY important ones - almost certainly featuring new game announcements! We'll also get to see some select developer panels later on as well and the mobile app is also now ready to download and the map is here right now.

BlizzCon 2019 Schedule with a Many Coming Soon Slots BlizzCon 2019 Schedule with a Many "Coming Soon" Slots Update: Here's the official preview, featuring the news that 4+ developer panels will also be free to watch for everyone!

Blizzard have unveiled the official BlizzCon 2019 schedule for the 3 days starting November 1st, and it's a pretty telling one. With so many "Coming Soon" entries and a very visible lack of anything Diablo on day 1, as well as a pretty big lack of, well, everything game-specific for WoW and Overwatch as well, it seems the leaks may well be true and we'll be getting a whole lot of announcements, and the "Coming Soon" panels will cover all of them (as posting a panel titled "Diablo 4 World Overview" would sort of give the surprise away)!

It really does seem a Diablo 4 announcement is a given, the only question is how much we'll find out about it, as the only Diablo-related panel showing up so far is the Art of Diablo on day 3, which goes along with the German magazine leak. Overwatch 2 is still a little up in the air, as the discussion raging around it is whether it's a full-blown sequel or just a massive update to the current game. We also know HotS is getting Deathwing, so this is shaping up to be one of the bigger BlizzCon's in a long long time, with the final piece of the puzzle being whether we'll get to find out about WoW 9.0 and possibly even some news on Classic!

Possible Leaks: Overwatch 2, Diablo 4 and Diablo 2 Remastered to Be Announced at BlizzCon? Possible Leaks: Overwatch 2, Diablo 4 and Diablo 2 Remastered to Be Announced at BlizzCon? We have a couple of weeks left until BlizzCon and the leaks and rumors have been heating up, with today's having at least a hint of credibility. It comes from streamer Metro_ow, and he's claiming to have a source that has given him a lot of info on the announcements and some game specifics for Overwatch 2 as well.

Why should he be considered credible? He's already leaked a number of things about Ashe from last year's BlizzCon, around a week before the actual reveal, with the info coming from the same source - "someone tied directly to a Blizzard dev". Now, obviously that doesn't mean his leaks are real this time around, but it at least separates him from the pack. But what exactly is he leaking?

Warcraft 3: Reforged Gameplay Videos Warcraft 3: Reforged Gameplay Videos It seems we have some very enthusiastic people in the closed WC3: Reforge beta, as youtuber Book of Flames has posted several videos of the game running on max settings at 1080p at 60FPS! We get a good look at the Orc and Human factions, with 3 matches being played and a surprise cameo by a Pandaren Brewmaster! We get some nice zoom-ins on a few units as well and a pretty good showcase of the game in action. Blizzard Blizzard 19 comments Oct 17, 2019 at 19:35 by Starym
