There’s not been a peep about this from Blizzard but this is a very notable anniversary as it was 14 years ago today that Diablo 2 was released.
Diablo 2 and Marvel Heroes creator David Brevik made sure we didn’t forget this important day with the following Tweet.
14 years ago today (and yesterday, depending where you live) we released Diablo II. Happy Birthday!

It’s hard to believe the game was released that long ago, it feels like yesterday, and it’s still massively popular today with much of the community here at Diablo: IncGamers.
The sequel was a really important release for the site, we’ve covered the franchise since Diablo 1 and there were very, very long periods following Diablo 2’s release where we had to keep the community enthused before Diablo 3 was announced. Not that this was hard to do as Diablo 2 was, and still is, a cracking ARPG.
