Diablo 4 release date

The Diablo 4 release date is scheduled for June 6, 2023. The game was announced on November 1, 2019, and was originally set to release in 2022.

Unfortunately, employee turnover at Blizzard resulted in the delay of Diablo IV. It’s been a long time coming for Diablo fans, but the wait is almost over as the 2023 release beckons.

We’re still several months away from the game’s highly anticipated release, but luckily for fans of the franchise, a first look at Diablo 4 will be available via an open beta.

There will be two periods for players to test out Diablo 4 early:

  • Diablo 4 open beta: March 24 to March 26

Diablo 4 platforms

Unlike Diablo 3, Diablo 4 will be available on PC and console on day one of the game’s launch.

Diablo 4 will be available on Windows, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S. As you can see, not only will the game arrive on console at launch, but players on current generation and past generation consoles will be able to enjoy Diablo 4.

The development of Diablo 4 occurred simultaneously on console and PC which will allow Blizzard to offer it to a wide variety of players at launch.

  • The Barbarian
  • The Sorceress
  • The Rogue
  • The Necromancer
