WarCraft 2 Remake in WC3: Reforged WarCraft 3: Reforged was always hoped to be a platform for potential mod remakes of the earlier games and much more creativity besides, but after the very rocky launch that seemed to fall to the wayside a bit. But now we have a really great project to look forward to, as Chronicles of the Second War, a WC2: Tides of Darkness remake is in testing and already has 4 missions ready, as well as a cool trailer!

Second Warcraft Movie Rumor Mentioned by Chris Metzen There have been some rumors going around recently about a potential second Warcraft movie that may be in development. These were somewhat vague and just mentioned that the production company for the first movie, Legendary Entertainment, were "already discussing" the next Warcraft movie behind the scenes and that it would wipe the slate clean and start the franchise over. The next rumor had a little more weight to it, coming from a relatively reliable "scooper", Daniel Ritchman via Movie Web, and claimed that the second movie is actually already in development. All related articles mention the poor critical and audience receptions of the first movie, as well as it's success in China and high box office returns from overseas.

Diablo 2 4K60 Upscaled Gameplay: 4 Acts Sorceress The remaster-bait continues, as we have another 4K 60 FPS upscaled Diablo 2 video, but this time much more extensive, as the first one was only the first 15 minutes of the game. We see the sorceress go through all 4 of the base game's acts (and poke around vendors in act 5, just to get us teased). It's looking damn good and, as many community members have mentioned, this is pretty much what they'd want out of a remaster, just more modern graphics with maybe a touch of quality of life improvements, like the stash sizes.

Activision Blizzard Q2 2020 Financial Report It's time for some financials, as the second quarter of 2020 gets a look! As expected, the impact of the global pandemic and stay at home orders increased player interest in WoW, as its reach and engagement grew once again. Interest in the Shadowlands was also high, with many new pre-orders, and franchise engagement is the highest this decade for a pre-expansion period. Meanwhile, Blizzard overall had the same amount of monthly active users as in the first quarter. Blizzard Blizzard Aug 04, 2020 at 20:57
Old Diablo 2: Lord of Destruction Trailer Upscaled to 4K It's time for more Baal after his recent Diablo: Immortal appearance! We see a lot of upscales coming and going, but it's always great when they not only improve the video quality, but also remind us of some less familiar trailers and cinematics. That's exactly what we have today, as an E3 2001 trailer for LoD, which even I don't remember, and while it's mostly pieces of the expansion's intro cinematic, we have some great new Baal voiceover, as well as a whole lot of Worldstone shots that aren't present in the game.

New Very Funny Diablo 2 Carbot Animations Series: Diablols 2 Carbot is getting into the Diablo 2 business, after the anniversary video he did for Blizzard! The new series, Diablols 2 just got its first entry (and a prelude Ep 0), and as usual with Carbot's stuff, it's a perfect(ly hilarious) encapsulation of a specific part of the game. For Episode 1 we get the absolutely flawless snowglobe that will forever remain a true representation of the Den of Evil + starting experience. Blizzard Blizzard 5 comments Jul 11, 2020 at 14:00
