Diablo 2: Resurrected Will Support Saves From the Original

The developers of Diablo 2: Resurrected confirmed in an interview that the upcoming remaster of Blizzard's iconic game will support save game data from the original version.

We have good news for all those who have retained their saved game data from the original Diablo II. The game's producer, Matt Cederquist, in an interview with IGN Middle East, confirmed that all those who purchase Diablo II: Resurrected will be able to transfer the save files to the refreshed version and continue the fun both in the modern edition and the original incarnation, as the title will enable the players to return to the original graphics.

“Back when we were working on [the remaster], we wondered if the old save files would work, so we kind of shoved it in, and it worked! So yes, your local singleplayer save files will carry over. [When it worked], we were like, ‘okay, that’s the best feature ever".

Diablo II: Resurrected is a refreshed version of the game from 2000 and its expansion Lord of Destruction. The title is prepared by Blizzard in cooperation with Vicarious Visions. A list of most of the changes that will be introduced compared to the original can be found here. Support for fan mods will also be available.

Diablo II: Resurrected is scheduled for release in 2021 on PC (Battle.net), PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch.
