The hoard of followers #Blizzard Entertainment has is awaiting the arrival of “StarCraft: Remastered,” due out later this year. Apparently, it’s not the only treat the publisher prepared for its fans – it’s hinting on possible updated versions of “#Diablo 2” and “Warcraft 3,” as seen on its official website.

Up on Blizzard’s Careers page right now is a job listing for a Senior Software Engineer, one that has skills adept in making games on par with “StarCraft,” “Warcraft III,” and “Diablo II,” the advertisement points out. “We’re restoring them to glory, and we need your engineering talents, your passion, and your ability to get tough jobs done.”

Blizzard: Not very subtle

To any fan of Blizzard’s finest games, it’s makes perfect sense that the ad would call for a pro who’ll work with the other two games.

It was previously rumored that all three games could get a remaster as early as 2015. After a “StarCraft” remaster was confirmed, it was only a matter of time until “Warcraft” and “Diablo” followed.

A second posting adds fuel to the fire, and says: “Warcraft, StarCraft, and Diablo await your machinations,” while advertising for a UX/UI designer. This has prompted many to believe that remasters are on their way, saying Blizzard couldn’t get any more direct than that. And since the job posting calls for a server engineer, there are speculations that both games may be made available using the core Blizzard app. As of now, both games are only playable online through Battle.net’s legacy version.

Will Blizzard confirm soon?

There’s no official word yet, and it doesn’t look like the game-makers will confirm anytime soon.

Still, that didn’t stop gaming websites from reporting that the two games are already in the pipeline. Truth be told, it does make a lot of sense.

Blizzard officially confirmed “StarCraft: Remastered” in late March, a complete graphical makeover of the original title and the “Brood War” expansion. Its release date is still unknown to fans, however, Blizzard has started releasing more gameplay details concerning the remake. The remastered version will have 4K graphics and 1080 cinematics, improved audio, and the gameplay and balance are said to be “precisely preserved.”

Commenting on updating unit models with the new 4K tech, Senior 3D Artist Brian Sousa had this to say: “We kept the same silhouettes because we wanted you to immediately recognize them.” All three original races — Protoss, Terran, and Zerg — will be playable. It will be released for Windows and Mac, with the price still unannounced.
