Blizzard Entertainment confirmed that Diablo 4 would receive an open beta in early 2023. Rumors claim that it could go live as early as February 2023.

Insider-Gaming has since followed up on the same, with Tom Henderson reporting that over 100 journalists saw a behind-the-scenes presentation for the title. They also went hands-on, and impressions reportedly go live on December 7th. Diablo franchise GM Rod Fergusson asked those in attendance to stay tuned for The Game Awards 2022 on December 8th for other announcements.

It’s believed that a release date will be announced at the show, with XboxEra’s Nick Baker and Jez Corden of Windows Central reporting an April 2023 window. The announcement at The Game Awards, as per Corden on Twitter, is allegedly for early access to the open beta on pre-ordering and the Collector’s Edition, which has a candle of some sort.

But that’s not all. Corden reported that the launch day may have shifted to June 2023, but he’s not “100 percent sure now.” “Hearing two conflicting answers. My docs for April 23 might be outdated.” Either way, Henderson also reported a PlayStation Store API on the backend, which refers to the game’s open beta. So we could very well hear more about The Game Awards.

Diablo 4 is coming to Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5, and PC. If the reports are true, stay tuned for more details in the coming days.

The big announcements are early access to open beta with pre-orders. Also, collector's edition which has some kind of… candle? Not sure 100% what that is.

I wrote April 2023 for launch but now I think that mighta been a runway/target launch window, with an 8 week variance.

also I did report they'd have announcements at The Game Awards previously ^______~ https://t.co/wgK6dr9Tqi

I also updated (still caching), that launch date may have shifted to June, but not 100% sure now. Hearing two conflicting answers. My docs for April 23 might be outdated.
