Blizzard’s Diablo 3 is due to get a massive update quite soon, with Patch 2.4.0 bringing a brand new area to explore as well as tons of new items and enemies. Though it has been announced for quite a while, no concrete details on a release have been give until now.
The patch was originally scheduled for a December release, but obviously missed that window. Players were upset, but a Blizzard member took to the forums to clear up some details. This is what he had to say:
The January 15th date is the start of the new season. We plan to release the patch prior to the start of Season 5.
While we typically patch on Tuesdays, dates can always shift if we run into technical issues during deployment preparations. This is why we do not provide hard release dates for any patch.
With the new season starting soon, Diablo’s latest patch could hit PC, PS4 and Xbox One platforms any day now.
