Diablo 4's release date has yet to be revealed. Blizzard first revealed the game Friday with a cinematic trailer played during the BlizzCon opening ceremony, then followed that up with a gameplay trailer. Although we learned a fair amount of information from those videos, we did not learn a release date.

Diablo 4 Release Date

All we know about Diablo 4's release date is that it is quite some time in the distance. Speaking on the stage after the trailers rolled, game director Luis Barriga said as much.

"A game of this scope takes time," Barriga said. "This is a very, very early first step. We're not coming out soon... not even Blizzard soon."

According to an official Blizzard description, Diablo 4 takes place many years after the end of Diablo 3. The High Heavens and Burning Hells have killed millions of people, but a vacuum power is now set to be filled by the returned Lilith. This return is illustrated in the cinematic trailer, as is the game's return to the darker, more gruesome approach of its early iterations.

Blizzard also revealed the first three classes in Diablo 4: the barbarian, sorceress and druid. All three appeared in the first gameplay trailer, premiered just after the cinematic trailer.
