Blizzard Entertainment confirms Diablo 4 launch times

Find out when Diablo 4 is coming out in your region and when exactly you'll be able to jump into the upcoming dungeon crawler.

Most gamers can't wait to welcome Diablo 4 into their lives with open arms.

Blizzard Entertainment's next big game, Diablo 4, is almost here. After more than a decade of waiting, fans of the award-winning dungeon crawler franchise can't wait to get their hands on the entire thing.

Thankfully, Blizzard has taken out all the guesswork regarding when Diablo 4 is coming out.

Blizzard Entertainment President, Mike Ybarra, confirmed the release dates on Twitter.

Here is the breakdown of the release times per edition and/or timezone:

Deluxe / Ultimate Edition

  • June 1 - 4:00 PM PT / 7:00 PM ET
  • June 2 - 12:00 AM GMT / 8:00 AM JST / 9:00 AM AEST

Standard Edition

  • June 5 - 4:00 PM PT / 7:00 PM ET
  • June 6 - 12:00 AM GMT / 8:00 AM JST / 9:00 AM AEST

To incentivize getting the more expensive versions of Diablo 4, Blizzard has thrown away other pieces of extra content for Diablo III and World of Warcraft as well as Diablo 4.

Most are probably hoping for Diablo 4 to at least be better than Diablo 3, at least at launch.

Despite the lengthy delay and hellish development process (pun intended), Diablo 4 doesn't seem like a game that Blizzard is rushing out the gates.

Contrary to earlier rumors, Diablo 4 is playing relatively well during the earlier beta period. Granted, this wasn't the entire game, but players had plenty of chances to try out the five Diablo 4 classes: Barbarian, Druid, Rogue, Necromancers, and Sorcerer. Not to mention, save for the balancing issues, Diablo 4's gameplay and overall feel received praise. It remains to be seen if the critics will have similar things to say once the full game is out on June 6.
