The development of the patch goes on.
Bashiok came forward to speak up to Battle.net forum to respond to questions from the community.
It was about time, Diablo 2 to miss a lick of paint. So the Patch team (which is also responsible for other games) was quickly charged with Diablo 2 to embellish a little. The story you dürftet otherwise know, if you read here regularly the news.
Now it gets interesting. The "Legacy Dev Team" was commissioned to work on Warcraft 3 patch. This is already on the public test realm and can be loaded soon. Which brings us to our long-awaited Diablo 2 patch would be back. It comes naturally to the community at the Diablo 2 players. The more people test the patch and provide feedback to Blizzard, the better the changes will be.
A release could "already" follow in a few weeks.
