Diablo II: Resurrected Continues to Suffer from Server Issues Weeks After Launch
As has seemingly become tradition for Blizzard, the launch of Diablo II: Resurrected was a bit of a mess, with a host of server issues and bugs making the game nearly unplayable at launch. Some of those issues have since been fixed via patches, but weeks after launch server issues continue to be a subject of widespread complaints on the Blizzard forums and elsewhere. Blizzard took Diablo II: Resurrected servers down for maintenance this weekend, but players continued to suffer from login issues. As of now, the Blizzard customer service Twitter account has been promising more info “in the next hour”… for around three hours.
We are still investigating the connection issues and will have more information in the next hour. #D2R

Update: After around six hours, Blizzard finally claims that server issues have been resolved. Time will tell if that's actually the case.
[#D2R] Today’s login and game creation issues have been resolved. Thanks for your patience and sorry for any inconvenience.

Original story continues: I’ve said it before, but it remains baffling that Blizzard didn’t manage to get something as simple as server capacity right for Diablo II: Resurrected considering how badly the company needed a win. It’s a shame too, because the game is actually quite good when it’s actually playable as Wccftech’s Chris Wray spells out in his full review…
Diablo II is one of the best ARPG's in gaming history, and Vicarious Visions haven't made many changes for Resurrected. Visually, there's a stark difference, and it looks great while keeping the atmosphere. A few quality of life changes help keep this fresh and make it playable on consoles, but it just doesn't go far enough at points. This aging master may have had a facelift, and it's one you can have a fantastic time with, but you can hear the creaking of its bones.
California’s Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) has filed suit against Activision Blizzard, alleging widespread gender-based discrimination and sexual harassment at the Call of Duty publisher. You can get more detail on that unfolding story here.
Diablo II: Resurrected is available now on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5, and Switch.
