Insider says you can still buy Diablo 4 in 2022 – so far everything has been right
A document that has so far correctly predicted all data for games from Blizzard and Activision also shows information about the upcoming Diablo 4. Rumors also want to know when exactly Diablo 4 will be released and when you can test it in advance in the beta.
When can I buy Diablo 4? According to a document purportedly sourced from Activision internal news, Diablo 4 pre-sales are set to start in December 2022 (via Twitter). Specifically, the Game Awards 2022, which will take place on December 8th, were named as the date.
Blizzard was not allowed to attend the Game Awards 2021, but according to an insider, it wants to take the opportunity for the big announcement this year. So far, the insider has been correct with all his data.
How secure is the information? Already in August there was a leak with different data. Hardly any dates were known at the time, but all have turned out to be correct:
Finally, the final item on the list is the pre-sale launch for Diablo 4 on December 8th. That would not only fit because of the Game Awards, but also fit into the plan to be able to sell Diablo 4 for the Christmas business. Many publishers include something like this.
There is also new information about the release and the open beta of the new action RPG, which, however, comes from other sources.
The release trailer for Diablo 4 was the big surprise at the Xbox & Bethesda Showcase:
Rumor has it that Diablo 4 will be released in April, the beta in February
Allegedly, the official dates for release, early access and the open beta will also be announced on December 8th. Like the page Windows Central and the XboxEra Podcast want to know, Diablo 4 will be released in April 2023.
In addition, the “Open Beta” should start as early as February, to which pre-orderers are supposedly guaranteed to be invited – presumably actually a closed beta with early access. A physical Collector’s Edition will also be released along with the digital versions of Diablo 4. However, the rumors have not yet given any details on the specific content of this.
We can’t confirm the release and beta dates yet. The first closed beta is said to be running under NDA at the moment, but gameplay from it is released again and again. Blizzard is currently only testing endgame content from Diablo 4.

Features like the level phase, the shop and more will only be tested later, if at all, on a larger scale. However, we cannot yet say if and when this will be the case.
Most recently, the Diablo boss himself spoke about the upcoming new part. He found exactly the right words to generate hype:
