It’s a generation of remakes! Diablo 2 was one of the best dungeon crawlers of its day, and Diablo 2 Resurrected promises to be even better. However, the pandemic has caused game production to become unstable. A lot of companies have had to give up on physical development. So, for Diablo fans or those looking for a new dungeon crawler, there is one question floating around: Will we get a physical version of the Diablo 2 remake? Or, will the pandemic claim yet another disc version of a fan-favorite game remake?
Will Diablo 2 Resurrected Get A Physical Version?
Unfortunately, there is no confirmed physical release of Diablo 2 Resurrected. That being said, there is some proof that Blizzard is still considering designing a disc release of the Diablo 2 remake. It is possible that, after the game releases, there might be room to gather collectors editions of this new addition to Diablo‘s universe. On release, there is almost no chance for any sort of physical copy to be available.
Like many releases of it’s time, Diablo 2 Resurrected ran into a brick wall when the pandemic began. Not only was production slowed, but it became significantly harder to work with any warehouses or physical distribution. So, a lot of these studios – even gigantic ones like Blizzard – simply couldn’t dedicate the manpower to stuff like physical copies.
However, Blizzard has never been one to stick its nose up to a fan-beloved project before. There is almost no doubt that a collector’s edition of the game may eventually grace store shelves. Whether or not it has a full disc, or is simply memorabilia from the game, is impossible to say. Still, there is still plenty of time before we have to officially give up hope.
