Diablo 4 is getting an open beta next month

A few weeks ago, Diablo 4 producer, Rod Fergusson, made it clear on Twitter that an open beta announcement would be happening soon. Many of us anticipated that this would line up with IGN Fan Fest over the weekend and that turned out to be exactly right. During IGN's stream, Blizzard announced that the Diablo 4 beta would be coming in March. 

Blizzard has already been running private beta tests for the game over the past few months, resulting in numerous leaks. In March, everyone will have the opportunity to try the game out a few months ahead of its June release date.

Pre-order customers will get early access, allowing them to play the beta from the 17th of March until the 19th. On the 24th of March, the open beta will go live, free for all to download across PC and consoles. The open beta won't be running for very long though, with Blizzard planning to close off access on the 26th of March.

After the beta, Blizzard will be focused on the road to launch. Assuming there are no last-minute delays, Diablo 4 will release on the 6th of June for PC and consoles.
