February 21, 2021 11:27 pm

BlizzConline 2021 ended yesterday with an air of excitement and success. BlizzCon 2021 was Blizzard Entertainment’s first ever virtual convention held from February 19-20, 2021. The annual convention by the developer to promote their major franchises including Warcraft, Starcraft, Diablo, Hearthstone, Heroes of the Storm, and Overwatch was canceled last year because of the global pandemicAlthough the virtual event was not as major as the physical fest, but it achieved its purpose. Blizzcon 2021 announced the Diablo 2: Resurrected due later this year.

Blizzard will release Diablo 2: Resurrected on PC and consoles.. The exact release date is not out yet. However, they revealed the requirements for a low-end system and the recommended specs for best quality gameplay. It does not have any superior requirements, in fact, they are the bare minimum from everyday contemporary gaming perspective. The 1080p resolution for recommended spec requires 16GB of system memory. Nothing unusual these days, though. Watch the announcement trailer for the remaster below.
