Blizzard Seemingly Remastering Warcraft 3 and Diablo 2

A job listing seems to have revealed that Blizzard will remaster two more of its classic games: Warcraft 3 and Diablo 2.

A Blizzard listing for a Senior Software Engineer (spotted by PCGamesN) says:

“Compelling stories. Intense multiplayer. Endless replayability. Qualities that made StarCraft, Warcraft III, and Diablo II the titans of their day. Evolving operating systems, hardware, and online services have made them more difficult to be experienced by their loyal followers or reaching a new generation. We’re restoring them to glory, and we need your engineering talents, your passion, and your ability to get tough jobs done.”

While a StarCraft remaster was announced for a Summer release earlier this year, this is the first we’ve heard of the other two games.

This job listing is for a server engineer, which suggests that the games will become available through the core Blizzard App – currently, they’re only playable online through a legacy version of Battle.net.

Most of the other job listings regarding the two games are for backend engineering, but another – for a UI/UX Designer – suggests that their menus will be receiving a modern overhaul.

IGN has contacted Blizzard for comment.

Joe Skrebels is IGN’s UK News Editor, and he just wants another game where he can click an orc until said orc threatens to kill him. Follow him on Twitter.
