Diablo 4 launch date and game size revealed by new leak
A previous report estimated that Diablo 4 would be playable sometime in April 2023, nearly four years after it was first shown off. However, data miner Aggiornamenti Lumia has unearthed a new release date for the highly-anticipated title from the Xbox store. The game supposedly will be playable on June 5, 2023, at 23:00 (unspecified time zone). And yes, it will follow Diablo 3's legacy and launch as an online-only game.
Aggiornamenti adds there will be three versions of Diablo 4 up for grabs- Standard Edition, Digital Deluxe Edition and Ultimate Edition. The exact perks offered by each version are unknown, but it will likely be some in-game items to give players an extra edge over their peers. Rumour has it that people who get the Digital Deluxe and Ultimate Editions could also get access to the game's open beta, which is set to commence sometime in early 2023.
Diablo 4 will supposedly take up a whopping 80 GB of space, at least on Xbox. That number will likely remain the same for the PlayStation 5 and PC. It isn't surprising, given the ballooning sizes of modern-day AAA games, although it is hard to imagine why an isometric RPG could take up so much space. Blizzard should confirm (or deny) said rumour at The Game Awards on December 8, where it is expected to show off more Diablo 4 gameplay and hopefully reveal the game's release date, pre-order information, and most importantly, whether or not it will be a day-one Game Pass title.
