When is Diablo 2: Resurrected Ladder Season 4?
Ladder Season 3 Ladder of Diablo 2: Resurrected is live, and as players race to the top of the leaderboards, one important question remains: when does Ladder Season 4 start? Blizzard doesn’t announce the dates of upcoming seasons in advance, but Diablo 2 Ladder Seasons follow a particular cadence, and we predict that Diablo 2 Ladder Season 4 will release on June 15, 2023.
How did we come to that date? Let’s talk about how Diablo 2: Resurrected Seasons work, how often they happen, and when you can expect Ladder Season 3 to end and Ladder Season 4 to begin.
What are Ladder Seasons in Diablo 2?
If you haven’t participated in a Ladder Season, you might have some questions as to how the Ladder Season works and what’s involved. A Ladder Season is a competitive game mode in which players race to level 99, with an online leaderboard that tracks player progress and experience earned. To participate in the Ladder Season, you must make a new Ladder-only character that starts at Level 1, and you work your way up. There are some perks in having a Ladder character, such as access to stronger weapons and armor, additional Runes that you can socket into your weapons, and Terror Zones that help you level up faster. Of course, Terror Zones are only available to those who have already completed Diablo 2.
We’re only in our third Ladder Season so far, but they tend to last roughly four months, which is the Diablo team’s goal. Once a Ladder Season ends, everything players have stored in their stash will get rolled into their non-Ladder character. Then when the new season starts, they’ll have to make a new character starting at level 1.
When is Ladder Season 4?
Since we are in Season 3 right now, we can estimate when this season will end and when the new one will begin. Season 3 started on February 16, so four months from now gives us some time in mid-June. Expect Season 3 to end and Season 4 to start immediately, without any break. Our guess is that Ladder Season 4 will start on Thursday, June 15 — though it’s possible it could drift later in the month, particularly since the Diablo community will likely be diving into Diablo 4, which launches on June 6.
Expect to start hearing some news about the new Ladder season in the next few months. With every new Ladder Season comes a hefty patch, and we can assume there will be additional Rune Words and new class adjustments. In the meanwhile, we’ll have to wait to see what the dev team announces.
