Are the Diablo 4 servers down?

The Diablo 4 servers are currently live. They may go down temporarily during the early access period for maintenance or due to server strain. We know from our experience with previous Diablo launches that connectivity issues and high queue times are to be expected during the first few hours following the game’s launch.

Diablo 4’s authentication servers did go down earlier in the weekend, as confirmed by the Blizzard Customer Service Twitter account, saying that they’re “currently investigating an issue affecting our authentication servers, which may result in failed or slow login attempts.”

The biggest reported issue right now is the Diablo 4 315306 error code, which we have a separate guide on.

However, we also expect these issues to become less frequent as the server population stabilizes and reduces the chance of an overload. While the Diablo 4 server slam and previous beta tests did undergo some initial connectivity issues, it’s worth pointing out that this is specifically what these tests are designed to do – so if you had significant trouble in the beta, you might find your experience differs at launch.
