Last Updated:

The potential Diablo 2 Resurrected open beta release date has been leaked! Read below to find out more.

Diablo 2 Resurrected is one of the most widely anticipated remasters of 2021, if not the last few years. The original Diablo 2 was a genre-defining experience and we can’t personally wait to get stuck into a higher resolution version of the gaming world with improved textures and visual effects!

When Is The Diablo 2 Resurrected Beta?

Blizzard had previously stated that Diablo 2 Resurrected Beta would be available to play in August 2021. Recent leaks on the Microsoft Store, discovered and captured by Reddit user crimson4649 before they were quickly deleted, suggest that the specific start date for one of the Betas looks to be August 17th!

Diablo 2 Resurrected Open Beta vs Closed Beta

As is common among gaming Betas, there is going to be a closed Beta for Diablo 2 Resurrected and an open Beta – the first will be playable only by people who have pre-ordered the game, the second will be open to anyone and will be absolutely free.

It is unclear at this stage whether or not the leaked date pertains to the open beta for Diablo 2 Resurrected or the closed beta. Either way, we’ll soon find out!

Diablo 2 Resurrected Release Date

According to an announcement video from Blizzard themselves (see above) from back in June, Diablo 2 Resurrected is scheduled for a full release on September 23, 2021.

The game will be available across all major platforms (PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X & S, Nintendo Switch, and PC) on the same date.

Can My PC Play Diablo 2 Resurrected?

Diablo 2 Resurrected is not going to be a very demanding game, however, if you’re running an older rig you may want to have a look at our Diablo 2 Resurrected System Requirements page just to make sure.

How Much Will Diablo 2 Resurrected Cost?

Although the Open Beta for  Diablo 2 Resurrected will be free to play, the full release of the game certainly won’t be.

The suggested retail price of Diablo 2 Resurrected is $39.99 – not the cheapest for what is essentially just a graphical update, but still a price we’ll end up paying for what is arguably one of the best games of all time. We recommend you have a look on Eneba to see if you can get hold of the game for cheaper on there when it does release.
