Diablo 2 Roadmap 2024: Update Schedule, Seasons & Content

We dive into the Diablo 2 Resurrected (D2R) 2024 roadmap, discussing the schedule, ladder seasons, content, and events we expect to see.

Blizzard

As a faithful recreation of the 2000 classic, Diablo 2 Resurrected (D2R) hasn't seen more than a handful of updates since its launch in August 2021. That, however, doesn't mean we can't provide our readers with a Diablo 2 2024 roadmap with the expected seasonal schedule and possible content updates, so let's leap in!

Diablo 2 2024 Roadmap Schedule & Content

Developer Blizzard has not revealed an official 2024 roadmap or content schedule for Diablo 2 Resurrected. We've decided to build our own based on historical data and what we know about ladder seasons, updates, and recurring events, so let's dive in.

Diablo 2 Resurrected used to have a two-week window between a major content update and the start of a new ladder season. However, in the past few seasons, we've seen the two-week window disappear, as no major content updates occurred.

Some seasons have lasted four months, while others have lasted three. Blizzard has not shared an official schedule beyond Season 6, which releases on 22 February 2024. To this end, we don't have an official Diablo 2 Resurrected ladder season schedule to share.

We do expect D2R Ladder Season 7 to begin in June or July 2024.

D2R Ladder Season 6 Start Time & Date 

We have the exact D2R Ladder Season 6 start time to share for different regions below, based on previous season start times.

North America

5:00 p.m. PDT on 22 February 2024

Europe

2:00 a.m. CET on 23 February 2024

Asia

10:00 a.m. KST on 23 February 2024

Check out our guide, counting down the days, hours, minutes, and seconds to the next Diablo 2 Resurrected ladder reset and new season.

D2R Ladder Game Modes

There are four game modes in each new Diablo 2 Resurrected which you can enjoy, namely:

  • D2R Classic Ladder: Start from level 1 and play through the original four Diablo 2 Acts.
  • D2R Hardcore Classic Ladder: The same as Classic, except if you die, your character will be gone, and you need to start all over again.
  • D2R Expansion Ladder: Start from level 1 and play through all five acts, including the Lord of Destruction expansion's Act V.
  • D2R Expansion Hardcore Ladder: The same as Expansion Ladder, except that if you die, your character is gone, and you need to create a new one to play again.

These modes have been set in stone for years, so we don't believe anything will change in 2024.

Diablo 2 New Content in 2024?

Diablo 2 Resurrected is, of course, the faithful recreation of the 2000 classic ARPG. That, however, didn't stop Blizzard from adding some new content, with the biggest feature being Terror Zones in update 2.5 back in August 2022.

Shortly after the game's release, Diablo 2 Resurrected also got some balance changes, and eight new Runewords were added in Patch 2.6 in February 2023. We can expect minor fixes with each season of Diablo 2 Resurrected. However, we don't expect world-shattering new updates for the game, which is effectively complete.

Saying that, however, there is always a chance Blizzard could surprise us with the new Diablo 2 update, adding more Runewords into the mix.

Next Diablo 2 Resurrected Update

There is a good chance Diablo 2 Resurrected won't receive more than one update in 2024. The last recorded update was patch 2.7.2 at the start of Season 5, which only had the following: "Miscellaneous stability and security fixes." This update was released in November 2023, and the last update that actually added content was 2.6, released in February 2023.

The next Diablo 2 update should arrive when a new season releases on 22 February 2024, ushering in Season 6. 

Returning Diablo 2 Events in 2024

In 2024, we know for sure that the Diablo 2 holiday event, 22 Nights of Terror, will return. While the exact start date is unavailable, this awesome event should run from mid-December 2024 until early January 2025.

That's everything we know about Diablo 2 Resurrected's 2024 schedule and plans with our patchwork roadmap. If Blizzard does share official plans for new D2R content in 2024, we'll be sure to update this article with haste, so stay tuned!
