Diablo II: Resurrected arrives later this month on September 23 on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Switch, and PC. Today, Blizzard has unveiled the cinematic trailer for the game. Anyone around when the original Diablo II was released knows how revolutionary and impactful the original cinematics in the game were, adding a ton of powerful visuals and flavor to the trek through catacombs, deserts, and jungles.
It is important to keep in mind what is going on within Activision Blizzard at this time regarding ongoing allegations about the work culture. The ongoing lawsuit from the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) against the company is over reported toxic workplace culture. The bulk of the suit focuses on “violations of the state’s civil rights and equal pay laws,” specifically regarding the treatment of women and other marginalized groups.
