Blizzard has teased that the “journey does not end” with this incremental Diablo 2 patch.

Well here’s a bit of interesting news: Diablo 2, which was last updated back in 2011, has just received a new update. Patch 1.14a is now available to download, focusing on system glitches introduced by modern operating system.

The update also includes a new installer for OSX, and improvements to cheat-detection and hack-prevention capabilities. In case you were wondering: yes, Battle.net servers for Diablo 2 are still up and running to this day, and there is still a somewhat active community for the decades-old title.

While this update itself was rather small and signifigant, at the very end of the announcement post, Blizzard hinted that “There is still a large Diablo 2 community around the world, and we thank you for continuing to play and slay with us. This journey starts by making Diablo 2 run on modern platforms, but it does not end there. See you in Sanctuary, adventurers.”

Fans have been speculating on exactly what this means. At the very least, we can probably expect Diablo 2, as well as other legacy Blizzard titles like WarCraft 3, being integrated into the modern Battle.net client. At most, we will see actual new content added to the game. Fingers crossed!
