The Diablo 4 Open Betas will run a bit longer than expected. Many believed both would last two (2) days. However, this is not the case. In an updated blog post, Blizzard has announced the exact start and end times.

First up, check them out below, so you know precisely when the Diablo 4 Early Access Open Beta and normal Open Beta starts and ends on all platforms:

  • Early Access to the Open Beta begins March 17 at 9 a.m. PST and concludes March 20 at 12 p.m. PST.
  • The Open Beta begins March 24 at 9 a.m. PST and concludes March 27 at 12 p.m. PST.

This means that both the Early Access Open Beta and the regular Open Beta for all platforms have a duration of 69 hours. Keep in mind that these are betas, and server stability will be tested. Therefore, it is possible that players might experience some downtime.
