First up, it is important to note that you should remove a previous version of Diablo 4 currently on your gaming device if you have an older Alpha or Closed Beta version. Blizzard's support service has also offered the following official steps if you can't patch or install Diablo 4 launch version:

  1. Make sure your device meets the minimum requirements to run Diablo IV.
  2. Make sure your device's operating system is up to date.
