In an unexpected turn of events Blizzard announced today that they are patching Diablo II to version 1.14a. Yes, you read that right – Diablo 2. They claimed that the community is still strong and the game needed help with running on modern systems, OSX support, as well a boost anti-cheating and anti-hacking measures. The developer is well known to support games well into their life cycle and considering they still patch the original Star Craft from time to time this should come as no surprise.

Official Press Release

It’s been a long time coming, but today we’re releasing 1.14a for Diablo II.

This update focuses on system glitches introduced by modern operating systems. In related news, you can finally retire those old Mac PowerPCs. Included with the update is a shiny new installer for OSX.

We’ve also begun working to improve our cheat-detection and hack-prevention capabilities. There’s still work to be done, but we’re making improvements every day.

There is still a large Diablo II community around the world, and we thank you for continuing to play and slay with us. This journey starts by making Diablo II run on modern platforms, but it does not end there. See you in Sanctuary, adventurers.
