You might have heard about a countdown website that popped up recently regarding Diablo 2. You might have also heard that it was teasing a HD remake of the iconic action RPG. And if you heard both those things, it’s understandable that you might have gotten excited. Unfortunately, the site is down right now — and Blizzard has confirmed it’s got nothing to do with them.
Following intense speculation around the site’s appearance — which fuelled into existing rumours about a big Diablo reveal at this year’s BlizzCon — Blizzard came out and explained to PC Gamer that they had no involvement in the Diablo2hd.com countdown page.
“This isn’t ours,” the short statement read, which is about as blunt as Blizzard could have put it. And if that wasn’t enough encouragement to debunk the whole thing, there’s the part where the website (at the time of writing) is displaying nothing but a blank page, instead of the Lord of Terror and a timer.
Still, it doesn’t mean a HD remake of Diablo 2 is off the table just yet. Blizzard has already been working on patching the original StarCraft and Warcraft for modern systems, and Diablo 2 received a compatibility patch earlier this year.
Something’s in the works; we’ll probably have to wait until November to find out what it is.
