Diablo II and Warcraft III Remasters Confirmed by Job Opening

Great news for anyone who never played Diablo II or Warcraft III proper: Blizzard is currently on the lookout for a new senior software engineer to work on remasters of those very games. Judging by their work on StarCraft: Remastered, we should expect the titles to play exactly the same but with 4K visual upgrades, new artwork, and re-recorded audio.

The remastered editions are directly referenced in a new job opening listed by the company, in which they are trying to find a senior software engineer with 5 years of experience. The text of the listing directly mentions Starcraft, Diablo 2, and Warcraft 3, as titles that offered compelling stories, intense multiplayer, and endless replayability, which allowed them to become the "titans of their day." And while the constant evolution of hardware and online platforms has left them behind current games, Blizzard confirms that they are "restoring them to glory."
