Diablo 4 has gone gold with over a month to go until June launch

Going gold isn't as hype-worthy as it used to be but it's still worth noting, especially following the several delays to Diablo 4.

Blizzard Entertainment has a lot riding on Diablo IV after the "failure" of Diablo III at launch.

It looks like Hell will have to freeze over first before Diablo 4 is delayed because it has officially gone gold.

Blizzard Entertainment's upcoming dungeon crawler just received one of the best news any game can get these days after the official Twitter account revealed that Diablo 4 is good to go ahead of the game's multi-platform launch on June 6.

Here's what Diablo general manager, Rod Fergusson, said about the latest revelation:

Going gold is a landmark milestone for the incredible Diablo 4 team, who have all worked so hard crafting the next-generation instalment of this iconic franchise. This is a concrete, meaningful step toward our June 6 launch. Whether players are veterans of the franchise or jumping in for the first time, we can’t wait for everyone to experience the full game: taking part in the incredible storytelling, experimenting with character classes and builds, and exploring what the endgame and the dark world of Sanctuary has to offer.

Some fans are curious if Diablo IV will on the Game Pass as soon as the Activision Blizzard purchase by Microsoft goes through.

Going gold no longer means as much these days as before. Because of the inherent live-service element in most of today's titles, developers tend to release "incomplete" games to meet deadlines, opting to apply fixes after the fact. Although there are advantages to this new process, it does make news like these trivial. If it's any consolation, this does mean that Diablo 4 will be as complete and as bug-free as can be - at least until the influx of users exposes a never-before-seen exploit.

More than a decade after the highly divisive Diablo III, Blizzard hopes that Diablo IV will help bring the franchise back to its glory days. To help, Blizzard is turning Diablo 4 into the largest game in the series yet, with hundreds of dungeons and just as many side quests as well as the process to release new story content every quarter.

If you're itching to get your hands on Diablo 4 earlier than everyone else, a pre-order bonus lets you log in on June 2.

Fingers crossed, Diablo will tap Thumbtack again for another and much-lengthier partnership. Diablo knows just how many will call in sick in early June.
