Diablo 4 Season 4 saw a spike in its daily and monthly player count because the developers introduced multiple changes in terms of the loot and some of the core mechanics of the game.

Considering that it’s a live service title, the number of active players fluctuates based on how players like the seasonal content. Although the game has its fair share of issues, the developers are working on improving the condition of the game, causing more players to return to it regularly.

Daily & monthly player count

Diablo 4 has averaged 3.93 million players during the last 30 days, as of June 26, 2024, according to Activeplayer.io. In the absence of official player numbers by Blizzard, third-party sources provide an approximate value only.

The game does have a growing player base on Steam too, and hit a peak of 39,782 players in the past 30 days, according to SteamDB.

The PTR that Blizzard has conducted for two seasons now is the prime reason why the Diablo 4 player count is seeing an increase.

Players get to try out what changes the developers intend to bring in the new season before it gets added to the game and provide feedback on it. Blizzard can then take this community feedback and make adjustments accordingly.

Not only does the PTR give players a fair idea of what to expect in the new season, but it gives the developers time to roll back or modify any drastic changes before they’re made live on the main game.

Diablo 4 Peak player count

Diablo 4 peaked at 6,750,114 players on June 30, 2023, and on average, it maintains over 1 million players every day.

While the player count in Diablo 4 Season 4 grew considerably, Season 5 could see an increase in the number of players because the developers will be introducing a brand new questline, including a new roguelike activity known as the Infernal Hordes.
