Blizzard have officially announced that their action RPG Diablo 4 has gone gold, meaning its ready for printing and shipping and won't suffer any delays.
One of the most anticipated games of 2023, Diablo 4 , has officially gone gold, Blizzard announced today via the game's Twitter. If you're unfamiliar with the term, "gone gold" in gaming usually means the launch version of the game has been completed and it's ready to be printed and shipped worldwide.
Usually, when a developer announce that their game has gone gold, it also means it won't be delayed anymore but we all remember how Cyberpunk 2077 got delayed shortly after the gone gold announcement .
We doubt Diablo 4 is going to be delayed though since it felt pretty polished in the beta and Blizzard had some extra time to make it play and feel even better over these last couple of weeks.
Of course, gone gold doesn't mean that Blizzard are done with the development of Diablo 4. Quite the contrary, expect a lot more updates and patches when the game launches. For a live service game like Diablo 4, post-launch support will certainly be even more important than the actual launch.
Diablo 4 is currently scheduled to release on June 6, 2023, for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. For more about the game, check the global release timings and early access dates and the Xbox Series X Diablo 4 bundle details .
If you're unfamiliar with Diablo 4, it's one of the biggest releases of 2023. It's an isometric action RPG set in a large open world with several biomes. Players take on various bosses and dungeons and gear up their character and take part in PvP or even tougher dungeons.
