Diablo 4 will not be region-locked and will support cross-platform play

No matter where Diablo 4 players come from and what platform they choose to play on, Blizzard announced in a press release that the next installment in the franchise will feature crossplay and region-free play, allowing friends to enjoy the game together without any restrictions. Although Diablo 3 was one of the best-selling games of 2012 on PC, the release of the Ultimate Evil Edition on PS4 and Xbox One brought the game's audience to life. It was Blizzard's first console release in the company's modern era and paved the way for Overwatch, Diablo 2: Resurrected, and now Diablo 4.

Considering how well Diablo 3's gameplay has ported over to consoles, players should expect the same quality to come to Diablo 4 as well. The sequel is a return to what made Diablo so beloved from the start, while at the same time retaining those parts of Diablo 3 that which were recognized by all as good. However, that doesn't mean that Diablo 4 is just the sum of the best parts of the franchise: it introduces Diablo's open world and a level of customization that's as fun for players as it is ambitious for developers.

Diablo 4 players will be able to enjoy all this and more in 2023 across all platforms and regions, according to Blizzard. Unlike its predecessor, Diablo 4 will not be region-locked. Players from America or Europe will be able to unite in groups and fight the forces of Hell. Moreover, Diablo 4 will have crossplay. An Xbox console player will be able to play with their friend on PC, symbolizing Blizzard's recent philosophy regarding its service and the games hosted on it.
