Just over six months after release Diablo II: Resurrected hits 5m sales as the ladder update drops this month

After the tumultuous launch of Warcraft III Reforged, Diablo II: Resurrected was far better received by the Blizzard community despite the various server problems that accompanied its launch in September 2021. It’s since gone from strength to strength, with this month’s update 2.4 finally adding a ranked competitive Ladder system and the first balance changes the developer has made to Diablo II since 2010.

The community seems to have responded favourably to the remaster, and Blizzard reports (via Windows Central) that Diablo II: Resurrected has sold over five million copies as of April 2022 – just over six months after the game’s release in September. It’s an impressive milestone, for sure, and it took the eagerly-awaited Diablo III just under two years to sell 15 million copies – which had console versions too.

All of which is possibly why Diablo II: Resurrected co-developer Vicarious Visions was absorbed into Blizzard earlier this month, and now goes by Blizzard Albany.

I’m thoroughly enjoying it on my PS5 and Series X. Level 65 FuryWolf just completed Nightmare.

Whats ladder mode?

I still want to know why Blizzard is such crap. This game is months old, On Nintendo Switch version, all the red, blond and grey hair on (amazon, druid, necro) and all npcs are black.
Multiple patches, multiple bug reports, you would think a simple shader error could be corrected easily.

Could this be an effort to add some additional diversity and representation of minorities so that the game reflects what the real world actually looks like?

I hope this helps those idiots at Blizzard realize that if you treat an original game and its fanbase with respect your game will do great.
I think this is a little bit unfair though. Yes, Warcraft 3: Reforged was a major fuck up, probably due to bad outsourcing.

But they've done a good job with the remaster of the original Starcraft and they're doing a good job with the classic versions of WoW too. Now with the success of D2 remaster, That's 3 out of 4.

still haven't picked it up. never played diablo 2 before. my first time was playing resurrected just before launch in the open beta. i enjoyed diablo 3 but this seems more slower and more grindy. if there's a good price on it i will pick it up.

The Switch port is great though, I play Amazon and I only noticed the bug after you mentioned it. You put a helmet at level 3 and don’t see your hair anymore ever after.

Also the patch is pretty awesome as it buffs a lot of usually weak builds like summon druid.

Is there still no cross-play between platforms? It's the one thing that stopped me from buying it on release, just why.

Diablo 2 is the best diablo hands down.

I just wish there were more end game content. I know its from a time where the only thing you did was rush to bosses and level up, but damn I would love some form of new content.

Made a quick video of my Fist of heavens pala clearing chaos sanctuary.

It has decent gear but nothing godly, works pretty well, love the new patch.
