Fans got very excited very quickly at the rumor of a possible Diablo 4 Beta that appeared on the Battle.net launcher just recently. It is understandable since the game is only set to release in 2023 with no set date as of yet, so having a Beta to mess around with would be a great treat for lovers of the franchise worldwide.

Not only that, but a Beta release would be a great indicator of how far away the game is from a full release. But sadly, Blizzard has crushed those speculations and rumors exactly where they stand, with an official tweet from the GM of Diablo that has cleared up the recent rumors and laid them to rest, as heartbreaking as it may be.

His tweet reads as follows: "Hey all, I’m loving all the energy and excitement about a Diablo IV Beta showing up on Battle.net but you should know that this is an internal only test. Sorry! We will have more public testing in the future as we continue down the path to shipping in 2023!"

This, unfortunately, means the game won't be coming anytime soon, and the Beta is likely still a ways off as well, but this doesn't mean all hope is lost. This news is at least a solid sign that the game is confirmed for its release next year, and you still have time to pre-register for the Diablo 4 closed beta at the time of writing.

While Blizzard is facing quite a bit of controversy at the moment, with Diablo Immortals microtransaction backlash, and allegations of sexual assault rocking the company and pulling them into ongoing legal battles. Hopefully, the company will resolve all matters in the time to come and still deliver on its promise to fans worldwide with the release of Diablo 4.
