When does Diablo 3 Season 26 start? Echoing Nightmares will invade Sanctuary on April 15!
Diablo 3 Season 25 ends on April 10, and now we know that the next Season will follow quickly on its heels: Season 26 begins on Friday, April 15, just five days later. In between closing the current Season and starting the new, Diablo 3 will roll out patch 2.7.3, which includes the new Season’s Echoing Nightmare mode as well as changes to Greater Rifts that should make them faster than ever.
The Diablo team tends to keep limited downtime between Seasons, typically closing out the Season, releasing a new content patch, and rolling out the next Season within a single week — as long as patch bugs or problems don’t cause any delays. That makes this Season’s schedule is pretty typical, and it means that Seasonal players won’t be out of the game for too long.
So get ready to play another Barbarian: a Diablo 3 Season 26 will start on Friday, April 15, 2022 at 5PM (PDT/CEST/KST).
