Woah! Blizzard is remaking Diablo in D3's engine and releasing it as a free patch to Diablo III: Reaper Of Souls.

Specifically, it will be available every January starting this one, to celebrate Diablo's 20th anniversary.

cool! Maybe I will finally play through it in this form...I have never been able to stay interested past a few hours in the past, despite adoring Diablo III.

I don't think it includes the original 3 class -warrior, rouge, and sorcerer to play as, correct?

Correct; you play as a regular D3 character.

Very cool. I grew up on 2 and enjoyed 3 (played pre-patches, which I hear it's a different game by this point and need to check it out again). So it'll be cool to play through 1 this way.

I think i will much rather stick with the original. It hasn't aged all that well but it's still going to be a butchered in transition. Diablo 3 ain't diablo and this "remake" isn't going to be either.

Wow and with my pc fail I just had to reinstall D3 the other day.

The thing is, anyone here familiar with bezelbub? Try this search, see the top link for it an the hot linked up videos in action: https://www.google.com/#q=diablo+belzebub This takes the original game into a modern environment, nice tweaks, and HD 720p.

D3 is great. I don't get the hate.

Seems like an interesting curio but nothing noteworthy. It's still nice to see Diablo follow in the footsteps of Doom, Age of Empires, and Baldur's Gate by having their content updated for modern gamers though.

I don't have too much experience with the series, but Diablo felt like a classic CRPG while Diablo III (which I played on a friend's PS4) felt more like a brawler.
