Still waiting for anyone to give me a good reason other than my assumption that Blizzard recast Tyraels voice.

We don't have to, because recasting a voice actor to remaster a 20 year old game is not suspicious or strange and your assumption is a HUGE leap.

Probably because Ed Trotta wanted more money than they were willing to pay. And Jonathon Adams, is a more known actor/voice over artist.

If D2R plan to have DLC next year, I'll pay it.

What money? These recordings were made like 20 years ago. Blizzard owns the rights to them. The only voice that changed in all the cinematics seen so far is Tyraels. Malthias is same, Wanderer is same, "Arise Diablo, Lord Of Terror" is the same, even Tal-Rasha's voice is the same when malthias goes to pull soulstone out. They just copy and pasted the audio files EXCEPT Tyraels. Why PAY a NEW VOICE actor to record NEW audio for a script they ALREADY HAD of a much better, more badass Tyrael they had?

Because they needed new scripts for something else and this way it's not two different voices.

I could care less if it happens or not, I'm not even sure how I feel about a new act. It's probably better w/o it. I'm just stating the obvious. They hired a NEW voice actor because they need ADDITIONAL content from that CHARACTER. Otherwise, they'd have just copy pasted old Tyraels voice lines, cuz it wouldn't cost anything, plus it sounded way better. Old Tyrael's lines are way more baddass then the new dude.

If you think that the voice actors for D2R, even the ones being reused, aren't being paid, I have some ocean front property to sell you in Kansas.
