Diablo 4 early access beta is having server issues

    Diablo 4’s early access beta has officially begun, but Blizzard servers are already struggling to keep up, and queues are forming. This is the first of two Diablo 4 betas scheduled for March. This weekend’s beta is now closed, with only pre-orderers, pre-purchasers, and those who received a key through giveaways or KFC’s Double Down promotion receiving a key. Even with limited access, it appears Diablo 4’s early access beta is struggling due to a flood of eager Diablo fans.

    Blizzard fans are well acquainted with the studio’s frustrating betas and launches. The release of Diablo 3 in 2012 will live on in infamy. Server issues collided with Auction House glitches, and the situation worsened as a result of progression design constraints. While Blizzard has made significant improvements to Diablo 3 in the years since those who witnessed its initial release will likely remember it fondly. Diablo 4 hasn’t yet reached that level of disaster, but players are frustrated.

    The Diablo 4 early access beta, which began at 9:00 a.m. PDT, appeared to be running smoothly at first.

    However, as the servers quickly filled up, it became clear that the beta wasn’t as well optimized as some had hoped. Crashes, log-in issues, performance optimization, and other issues plagued those who were able to launch the game. Most players, however, never made it that far, instead becoming stuck in an ever-growing queue.

    The implementation of a queue was already visible when the beta launched. Queues of 1-3 minutes were encountered during early Diablo 4 logins. That wait time has now surpassed two hours and is expected to rise further. To its credit, Blizzard has acknowledged this. It has warned Diablo 4 beta players that there may be a queue all weekend.

    Diablo 4 releases June 6 on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
