Below we’ve detailed our biggest dream announcements that we hope are made at BlizzConline 2021. What are your dream BlizzConline 2021 announcements that you desperately want to get made? Let us know in the comments below.
Announce A Remastered Version Of The Original Diablo
The Diablo series seems to be getting plenty of attention as of late with games like Diablo IV, the mobile spin-off Immortal, and rumors of a potential Diablo 2 remaster. While much of the attention is on those games, I think Blizzard’s action-RPG series’s original entry is long due for another look. This is the one big hope I have for BlizzCon. If Blizzard were to announce the original game’s return with modernized visuals and mechanics, I would be delighted. Seeing the return of the original crew of dungeon-crawlers in a modern light sounds like an incredible way to revisit the series’s roots. Plus, adding in co-op and other modern updates can make for a game that not only enhances what made the original game so novel at the time but also shows newcomers the beginnings of the loot-focused action-RPG as we know it. The series no doubt found its true identity with Diablo 2, but I think there’s a lot of potential with having the original Diablo make a return. — Alessandro Fillari, Editor
