When does Diablo 3 Season 27 end?
Diablo 3 Season 27: Light’s Calling is underway. Hopefully, you’ve enjoyed collecting Angelic Crucibles to power up your gear. But whether this Season is to your liking or not, the next Season is always just around the corner. So how long do we have to enjoy Season 27 before it ends? Diablo 3 Seasons don’t have fixed schedules, but they follow some predictable patterns so we can make educated guesses about important dates. My estimate? Diablo 3 Season 27 will likely end on Sunday, February 26, 2023.
While D3 seasons don’t have a set length, let’s look at the past five and get a handle on average runtime.
- Season 22 — Started November 20, 2020, ended March 28, 2021. Runtime? 18 weeks, 2 days
- Season 23 — Started April 2, 2021, ended July 18, 2021. Runtime? 15 weeks, 2 days
- Season 24 — Started July 23, 2021, ended December 5, 2021. Runtime? 19 weeks, 2 days
- Season 25 — Started December 10, 2021, ended April 10, 2022. Runtime? 17 weeks, 2 days
- Season 26 — Started April 15, 2022, ended August 21, 2022. Runtime? 18 weeks, 2 days
- Season 27 — Started August 26, 2022.
What does this mean? Well, for one, the last few seasons have been relatively consistent in their run time. Seasons 5 through 20 averaged 12.5 weeks, but we started experiencing longer windows in Season 21 in mid-2020 as teams adjusted to working from home. And now that we’ve received the PTR announcement, here are our projected dates to look forward to:
- Estimated PTR start — Tuesday, January 31
- Estimated PTR end — Tuesday, February 14
- Estimated Season end alert — by Tuesday, February 14
- Estimated Season 27 end — Sunday, February 26
The end date of February 26, 2023, lands us with a six-month season — more akin to Diablo 2 ladder cycles than previous Diablo 3 seasons! While the 18-week average has been the norm, we will definitely hit a record with Season 27. But don’t forget, this is just a guess! We will know for sure when the official end date is released by the Diablo community team.
And remember, it’s not just D3 on the community radar now; it’s also Diablo 2 Resurrected and the associated ladders, plus Diablo Immortal and its rapid 4-week seasons (correlated to battle pass rotation). With Diablo 4 scheduled for its June 6, 2023 release, we are not lacking in Diablo content. So go out there and earn yourself a terrifying, arm-toting zombie puppy, yeah?
