Diablo 2: Resurrected's patch 2.6 brings with it the action RPG's first content drop of 2023, accompanying its third season. Regardless if you're still grinding through season 2 or find yourself taking a break, its release date is fairly important to all players who want to make the most out of the new additions.
Having made its way to the PTR on January 24, 2023, Diablo 2: Resurrected's patch 2.6 is set to introduce new rune words to the game alongside other bits of content. This first run on the PTR also implies that its release date shouldn't be too far off.

The eight new rune words give players additional means to boost specific resistance types, additional mobility, and different flavors of shapeshifting Druid builds.
Although Diablo II Resurrected's patch 2.6 release date wasn't officially unveiled with the new rune words, its arrival on the PTR did let us speculate on when we might see it going live.
Provided everything goes well during testing, we estimated that the update would go live at some point during February.
- Diablo II: Resurrected Patch 2.6 release date: 24 January, 2023 (PTR); At some point during the first two weeks of February 2023 (live servers - GameWatcher Estimation)
Like its previous counterparts, we think Season 3 will go live a week or two after the patch becomes available to all players, giving them time to accommodate to its changes before climbing the ladder once again.
Since Season 3 is now slated to go live on February 16, we should see Diablo II: Resurrected Patch 2.6 release date occurring prior to that, during the first two weeks of the month. Final patch notes are currently expected during the week of February 6.
