On the occasion of the announcement of Diablo II: Resurrected, users decided to inquire whether co-founder and former President of Blizzard North David Brevik will receive royalties from the sales of the game. It is he who is behind the creation of the first two parts of the famous franchise. In his response, the ex-executive said that he does not receive any royalties from Diablo sales. And for the upcoming remaster, he is also not entitled to a fee.
In personal microblogging David Brevik wrote: “I haven’t made anything from Diablo since I left Blizzard in 2003. I do not receive royalties. They are rarely paid out in the gaming industry. Although this is not entirely true – one person during my speech at GDC 2016 paid me for a pirated copy of the game that he downloaded a long time ago. It turns out … [я заработал] 40$?»
It is worth clarifying that usually deductions from product sales are paid to copyright owners, or if this condition is spelled out in an agreement with a specific person. David Brevik does not appear to have entered into an agreement with Blizzard regarding royalties on any Diablo-branded product. If so, the company owes nothing to the former executive.
Diablo II: Resurrected выйдет в 2021 году на ПК, PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Xbox Series X и Series S.
