Diablo 4 release date and everything we know about the game so far

We are measuring the delays on this one in terms of years rather than months

The excitement remains massive for a game that has had a fair few development updates but never a concrete release date. Even the vague timelines we have had have tended to be pushed back by the year rather than the month. But what do we know right now about Diablo IV? We know Blizzard has had a rough old time getting its act together in 2021 – how much that will have affected things we don’t know, but it is unlikely to have much of a positive effect. Let’s look at what we do actually know though.

Diablo IV release date

Originally first mooted waaay back in 2018, we initially thought that 2021 would be the year Diablo 4 arrived. Then as it became apparent that date was no longer a thing we wistfully hoped for 2022. Now it seems we can expect a launch in 2023 at the earliest. Bad news?

Not entirely. When you are making a game in a series as beloved as Diablo you have very little room to make a mess of it so as much extra time as needed is definitely a good thing. It’s also good news that the devs are still providing quarterly updates on the project’s progress – the last one was in October 2021 – ooh, tell a lie, the December 2021 update just dropped – showing that work is still seemingly going at full pelt.

If 2023 is to be the year of launch we can also expect 2022 to be good in the way of news as more of the game gets shown off. Maybe we will get more next summer at the big Expos. Here’s hoping.
