Vicarious Visions, the studio responsible for “Crash Bandicoot N Sane Trilogy » and « Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2”, Would abandon Activision to join the working ranks of Blizzard. Although there is still no clear data on what the company is looking for from this development study, some options have begun to emerge that, thus far, seem viable.
The Bloomberg news portal suggests that Vicarious visions have been assigned to develop a remake of one of the most beloved games in the catalog of Blizzard: Diablo II. This would be part of the company’s line of classic re-releases, such as “StarCraft Remastered » and « Warcraft III: Reforged”.

These reports arise from the impressive track record of Vicarious visions at the time of remastering classic games, so there would be no doubt about the reasons why Blizzard chose to require their services.
The report ensures that Blizzard has been working on the remake of « Diablo II”Since last year, but big changes would have been made in the course of 2020. Team 1 would have been the studio that would initially work on the project, however, the low response received by“Warcraft III Reforged”Would have changed these plans.
