Diablo 2: Resurrected suffered from bugs and problems after release. Gamers who bought the game struggled with bugs and overloaded servers, in addition, the game was missing some features that turned out to be very important for fans.
However, the debut of the updated version of the iconic hack’n’slash turned out to be a success for Blizzard Entertainment. Diablo 2: Resurrected – turned out to be the best-selling remaster in the history of the studio.
The game outperformed the controversial Warcraft III: Reforged and StarCraft: Remastering. What’s more, Diablo 2: Resurrected skyrocketed to the top just four months after release.
As such, the game contributed to Activision Blizzard’s very good financial results. Last year, the company’s revenue was $8.8 billion.
Admittedly, the last quarter didn’t live up to publishers’ expectations, but that was primarily due to declining Call of Duty: Vanguard sales rather than problems with the remastered Diablo 2.
