While people love to speculate whenever a job offer in the gaming industry implies some interesting tidbits about what the company is working on behind the scenes, you really can’t get any more clearer then this job description.
In order to achieve these remasterings, the company is seeking someone with engineering talents, passion, and the ability to get “tough jobs done,” while also suggesting that the development team would have a small size. Some of the requirements are a strong knowledge of C / C++, experience with client / server architecture and debugging unfamiliar code, and a mind towards scalability and performance.
While the full details of the remastered editions of Warcraft III and Diablo II have yet to be announced in any official capacity, it can be presumed that they will have the same 4k graphics upgrade of their Starcraft counterpart.
