When does the Diablo 4 review embargo end?

The general public will have a chance to find out what critics think about Diablo 4 sooner rather than later.

As a general rule of thumb, the sooner a developer allows for the review embargo of their game, the more confident they are in its state and quality at launch. So, when gamers caught wind of when the review embargo if Diablo 4 will end, you'd best bet that a wave of excitement followed.

We'll find out on May 26 if Diablo 4 is a return to form for the series or another miss for Blizzard Entertainment.

Although Blizzard Entertainment hasn't confirmed this yet, it's believed that the review embargo of Diablo 4 will lift on May 26 - more than a week before Diablo 4 comes out on June 6.

Twitch streamer, DatModz, was one of the first to break the news. Shortly after, Paul Tassi from Forbes and Jez Corden from Windows Central, both hinted at the said date.

Blizzard Entertainment has talked a lot about how good Diablo 4 is going to be.

Earlier this month, Blizzard expressed its confidence in the state of Diablo 4 when it comes out. It appears that the multiple open beta periods for Diablo 4 gave Blizzard multiple opportunities to receive a ton of feedback from its fanbase. Because of this, Diablo 4 is coming out in a flawless state, much to the delight of the thousands of Diablo fans from around the world.

So, if you're looking forward to reading what critics think of Diablo 4, you'll want to circle May 26 on your calendar.

Speaking of calendars, don't forget that you can actually play Diablo 4 before June 6. After confirming the launch dates of Diablo 4, Blizzard also revealed that Early Access (June 1 in the US and June 2 in Europe) is available on all platforms for those who buy the Deluxe or Ultimate Edition of Diablo 4.

Blizzard's decision to test Diablo 4 out multiple times will pay off dividends if it launches in as good of a state as the studio promises it would.

Diablo 4 along with The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom and Final Fantasy 16 represent a trio of new-age titles that are trying to fight back against the growing concern among the community that developers are content with launching half-assed games.

We'll find out more if critics are impressed with Diablo 4 when the review embargo lifts later this week.

In the meantime, do check out the final trailer for Diablo 4, which fans simply can't get enough of.
