Diablo II: Resurrected frustrates fans
It all started well for Diablo II : Resurrected, launched September 23 for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X, and Nintendo Switch. The tests – including ours – were glowing, with a Metacritic score above 80 out of 100. During our few hours with Diablo II : Resurrected, we have not encountered any of the concerns raised, several days later, by the players. We were therefore far from imagining that the situation would turn badly, as has already been the case, for example, for WarCraft III : Reforged .
According to information from Kotaku released on October 13, everything seems to be from a routine maintenance deployed on October 6. This is confirmed by the activity of the European customer support Twitter account: it is from this date that the messages of apology begin. On October 12, Blizzard promises: “ Our teams continue to work on immediate and longer term fixes to bring the game back online and ensure it remains stable. We will post an update once we have more information to share. ” A few hours later : ” There may be times when connections or game creation will be limited. »
This situation obviously generates strong reactions. ” That I regret my purchase! Don’t count on me for Diablo 4 or any other game. Blizzard is over », Indicates for example youplayop. « Same day, same time, same channel. It’s incredible. 5 days in this m **** », Plague for its part Alex C. When others prefer to laugh with memes.
Currently at the heart of a scandal that has gradually made it lose all its support, Blizzard Entertainment believed it could calm the situation a little by making Diablo II : Resurrected, a celebration coupled with a brilliant tribute. It doesn’t start off very well.
