Diablo 2: Resurrected has been quite the smash-hit for Blizzard. The game has sold millions of copies on PC and consoles, and it has seen millions of fans returning to the classics with new eyes. I know I went ahead and bought it over the holidays on Switch to play with a few friends who just jumped on the bandwagon. It’s been a blast getting back into the franchise over the last couple of months.
And now Blizzard has revealed just how huge the impact has been. The developer has released stats tracking how much people have played both the remaster and the most recent entry in the franchise. With it being just around 25 years since the franchise first debuted, there have been a lot of demons to kill. Though Blizz didn’t reveal stats on mobs killed, they did share that the community has played the remaster, along with D3, a total of 7,395,027,817.5 hours. Although the developer also revealed D2R players in particular had already killed 1,439,479,438 bosses.
Blizzard also revealed that in Diablo 2: Resurrected alone, an eye-watering 2,167,586,684 games have been created. That’s just since the title launched back in September, so expect millions more to play the classic remaster.
And not to be left behind. Diablo 3 has been running events to keep players engaged. The sequel just began the 2022 run of the Darkening of Tristram event. Players can actually play through classic Diablo in a way, through this massive dungeon. And given that Diablo 3 has been selling tens of millions of units since its launch years ago, it likely has some gas left in the demon-killing tank.
