Diablo 3 Season 23 marks the first major reset of 2021, making its start and end dates important details for players who like to plan ahead. A new season brings with it a fresh theme alongside various rewards that players can pursue as they level up their characters and complete endgame challenges.
Pinpointing the Diablo 3 Season 23 start and end dates beforeannounces them is always tricky. The game's seasons vary in length quite a bit – ranging between 70 and 136 days – and usually have a two-week break between them, outside of special circumstances.
Diablo 3 Season 23 Release Date
Diablo 3's seasons have routinely begun on the following Friday, which Blizzard has confirmed will also be the case this time around. Diablo 3 Season 23's official start date has been locked down to April 2, at 5PM (PDT/CET/KST).
It was predated by the launch of Update 2.7.0, which makes your companions feel like an even more active part of battles.
The Diablo 3 Season 23 end date is then expected to happen at some point between June and August. Our estimation is, currently, July 9, but we'll know for certain once Blizzard shares more on the topic.
Expected End Date
- Between June 11 and August 16
- GameWatcher Estimation: July 9
Diablo 3 Season 23 Theme
Season 23, titled Disciples of Sanctuary, revamps Kormac, Lyndon, and Eirena, the trusty followers that have aided players since the game's launch. Having gathered experience from watching you fight, they now have access to 14 item slots that greatly increase their power.
The new Emanate feature also makes it possible for players to gain the effect of certain Legendary Powers and Set Bonuses from items equipped on their active follower.
