After 21 years the Battle.net name has been retired and will now be known just as Blizzard launcher. Battle.net was originally developed and released as a communications platform for co-op mode of original Diablo on 1996. Since then it evolved into a launcher for all Blizzard games, including World of Warcraft, Starcraft 2, Diablo 3, Hearthstone, Heroes of the Storm and Overwatch.
The Battle.net site will still function as before, however.
Be sure to start up your Blizzard launcher to get the latest updates.
