It looks like Blizzard is teasing another Diablo 4 beta.

Updated on 4/20/23 at 12:13 p.m. PT/3:13 p.m. ET: Blizzard has announced the Server Slam, a final open beta for Diablo 4 that will take place from May 12-14 next month.

Fans around the world got their hands on Diablo 4 for the first time last month during two betas that occurred on back-to-back weekends. The second beta was open, allowing anyone to jump in and check out the Diablo sequel without pre-ordering the game. There are just under two months left until the game is released, but players might get to take the game for a spin one more time before then as Blizzard has teased another Open Beta for Diablo 4.

The official Diablo Twitter account quoted a tweet from a fan yesterday, hinting at a potential upcoming Diablo 4 Open Beta. User @littlelizzy86 expressed their desire to get their hands on Diablo 4 again, and the Diablo account said “That can be arranged…” in response. If that wasn't enough to convince you, Diablo Global Community Manager Adam Fletcher and Blizzard Presiden Mike Ybarra both replied with side-eye gifs. There are strong implications that another Diablo 4 Open Beta could be around the corner.

The previous betas for Diablo 4 were well received by fans, so it makes sense that Blizzard would want to let folks jump back into hell once last time before the global release. There were also some severe server issues that plagued the previous betas, so this could provide another opportunity for those that weren’t able to get in on the action last time.

If there is another Diablo 4 Open Beta on the way, an official announcement is probably coming sooner rather than later. The game is set for release on June 6, 2023, and recently hit the massive milestone of going gold. We quite enjoyed the taste of Diablo 4 that we got during the beta and are interested in seeing what wonders the full release holds.
