Heading into South Korea early this year, Blizzard announced StarCraft Remastered - a spuced up, HD version of the original strategy classic that retains its aesthetic while making it more appealing for newer hardware.
But fans have been anticipating the same treatment to be bestowed upon Blizzard's other timely classics - like Warcraft and Diablo - for some time; even before StarCraft Remastered was properly revealed.
So, fans assuming the StarCraft treatment was on the beginning may find solace in the recent job listings going up on the Blizzard website that seem to be hinting at the possibility once more. "We're restoring them to glory", says the job listing specifically after mentioning StarCraft, Warcraft III and Diablo II. We know Starcraft is being 'restored' already - so could this mean the same for the other two titles?
Some are taking this as definitive confirmation of this being the case, whereas it isn't necessarily true. The past year or so has seen both Warcraft III and Diablo II recieve patches aimed as ensuring they continue to function on newer operating systems. The rest of the job listing goes on to mention how "Evolving operating systems, hardware, and online services have made them more difficult to be experienced by their loyal followers"
There's every chance these small teams are just continuing their work on ensuring compatibility isn't an issue for anyone hoping to experience these gaming gems. But with the StarCraft remaster on its way, it's only natural to speculate that more could follow.
