Diablo 4, already scheduled for next year, could arrive precisely in April. Suggests the Windows Central portal from various rumors, corroborated by the XboxEra podcast team. Blizzard’s action RPG should be announced during The Game Awards, the awards that take place on December 8, and which has recently become a space for noble revelations in the gaming world.
Blizzard would be planning a robust marketing campaign for the game that would start at the event, and which would have as its main gimmick the start of pre-sales. The game should arrive in several types of digital editions, in addition to a premium physical collector’s edition with several goodies for fans – one of the benefits will be early access to the Diablo 4 open beta in February 2023.
Another aspect that is known is that the game is being planned in the format of live service, in seasons, including support for microtransactions . as has already been made official. The release of that first season, however, is scheduled for the third quarter of 2023, despite the game arriving in April.
In parallel, Microsoft is in the process of acquiring Activision Blizzard for $69 billion. Microsoft previously commented that it intends to close the deal by March of next year – so there are still chances of the game reaching Xbox Game Pass subscribers and helping a lot in the growth of the gaming service.
Since these are rumors, it is best to take the news carefully and keep an eye out for more news about Diablo 4.
