Diablo 3's Season 27 continues the hack and slash RPG's lengthy post-launch journey, one decade after it first saw us venture into hell and beyond to save the world. As is the case with all limited-time content, knowing what its start and end dates helps planning out how much time you have to obtain all available rewards.
Diablo 3 Season 27 start and end dates are rather hard to pin down prior to an official announcement from Blizzard. 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 27 Release Date
Diablo 3 Seasons routinely kick off on Fridays, ending on Sundays. In the past, there have been exceptions to this rule. Season 23 and 22 ran for a total of 128 and 110 days, respectively, making them some of the longest in the game's history.
Season 26 kicked off in April and we expect it to end somewhere between late July and late August 2022. This gives us a rough estimate of when Season 27 might begin, but do keep in mind that the dates below remain speculative until Blizzard shares official plans.
Blizzard has confirmed that Season 27 and its accompanying 2.7.4 update are available on the PTR for 16 days starting with July 12. It shouldn't be too long before the full release hits live servers.
It later announced that PTR testing would be available for longer, as a new patch was deployed during the week of July 25.
Expected end date
- Diablo 3 Season 27 start date: August 26, 2022
- Diablo 3 Season 27 end date: February 19, 2023
In early February, the developer confirmed that Diablo 3's Season 27 had locked down its end date to February 19, at 5 PM PST(NA)/ 5 PM CET (EU)/5 PM KST(Asia). Read on to learn about the ARPG's latest changes.
