So we know that Blizzard is working on a HD remaster of StarCraft, and now it looks like Blizzard could be doing the same with some of their older franchises, such as Diablo 2 and Warcraft 3. This is according to a report from PCGamesN who spotted a couple of job listings at Blizzard that hinted at such plans.

According to one of the job listings, “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.”

The other listing reads, “Classic Games is looking for a renaissance designer to harmonize that which was, with that which will be. Warcraft, StarCraft, and Diablo await your machinations. If you have the desire to rise to that challenge, we’d love to hear from you.” Of course this by no means confirms Blizzard’s plans, but it certainly sounds like it.

Given that Blizzard is working on a StarCraft remaster, we guess it wouldn’t be a stretch to think that a remaster of older titles might be in the works as well. In any case try not to get your hopes up yet, but perhaps we could hear something at BlizzCon 2017 which will be held in November later this year.
